• Short Summary

    Belgian fishermen and women sing a traditional song and do a clog dance at Dover.

  • Description

    Titles read: "BELGIAN FISHERFOLK IN SONG & DANCE".

    Dover, Kent.

    Various shots of Belgian fishermen and women singing a traditional song. The men are in sou'westers and rain hats, the women wear white bonnets and tartan shawls. Commentator explains they have come to England in connection with the Polytechnic Jubilee.

    We then see the fisherfolk doing a traditional clog dance with lots of skipping. A small Belgian fisherman puppet seems to be conducting the music.

    Cataloguer's note: this looks quite funny. No offence to Belgian fisherfolk intended.
