  • Description

    Bath Red Cross Fair.

    Festivals. Bath Red Cross Fair. GV park with a bunch of seats set up in front of a pillared building in BG; people walking about; lots of trees. Quick CU of people walking past. Side shot of a man giving a speech; with other speakers or dignitaries seated behind him. Same place: a small child standing beside one of the ladies sitting; woman kisses child; child shakes hands with the person in next seat. Cute.

    Quick shot of children dancing round a Maypole. CU People walking under trees. Back to kids at the Maypole dance -- a longer shot this time; kids all running around with streamers; more kids on hill in BG; also union Jack in BG held by a girl. All the children are wearing white. Games; holidays. Ceremonial procession bit. Looks like it was a fine warm spring day.
