Location of events unknown.
Entertainment at a garden party - a festival held outdoors in a park. Opens CU pan on a silly band; men dressed up in tuxedos; top hats; and playing what looks like some crazy sounding music: man clanging cymbals together non-stop; 2 drummers banging away; a man switching between a bugle or cornet and some long skinny horn.
A dancing camel - 2 people inside a camel costume; the front person doing high kicks like a chorus line but messier. People standing about in park. Several soldiers and entertainers pose for picture - woman in little ruffled dress; another woman in harlequin pants;etc. . These people start throwing something - soldiers really getting into it.
CU 2 little girls about age 3 or 4 sitting on back of pony or donkey (animal's head not in frame) - the back one w/ arm round the front kid - very cute. Then shot of some ladies and men on a platform; the women - all in white suits w/ wide brimmed hats - are standing around bass drum and cymbal; banging on them; man is winding some small thing; like pencil sharpener? Back to CU the kids on the pony.
GV crowd standing around talking / some walking. Shot of crowd walking around; from under awning / tent. Queen Alexandra walks past in BG. Queen Alexandra and Princess Mary (?) meeting people.
