    Gateshead, North of England

    Shots from above show the Carnival procession, which consists of a brass band, various floats and costumes, and some people dressed as butchers. They wear straw hats. Small children scramble to pick up money thrown by crowd who line the route. A man dressed as a jester, dances and is watched by others in medieval costume. A crowd stand under a covered way.
