    "This is probably some kind of charity event." - it was an event that was held a number of times in the 1930s and 1950s.

    Visible at 02:49 is the footballer John Charles.

    Seen at 03:41 is Alderman Ezra Taylor, Castleford's first ever Mayor.

    The event seen here took place on 21 March 1956.

    Further to my earlier comment, the footage here shows one of the "Reight Neet Aht" charity events, that ran between 1936 to 1958.
