    People have fun welcoming in the New Year at the Chelsea Arts Ball in the Royal Albert Hall.

  • Description

    Title reads: "Chelsea Arts Ball".

    Royal Albert Hall, London.

    Various shots of throngs of people enjoying themselves while welcoming the New Year at the Chelsea Arts Ball. Decorated floats move through the huge crowds of people; lots of the revellers are in fancy dress. Balloons fall from the ceiling just before midnight and people try to pop them as they float down. Some people find enough space to do 'Ring-a-ring-a-roses' in the hall. They all join hands to sing 'Auld Lang Syne'.
