• Short Summary

    Great footage of a people having fun at a huge fair somewhere in England.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'Hey Ho Come To The Fair!'

    Somewhere in England.

    Various great shots of a huge fair. Enormous crowds flock around the rides and stalls. We can see people riding round on swing carousels and merry-go-rounds. People look at sideshows. Brief shot compares the crowd to a flock of sheep.

    Outside sideshow tents we see two girls doing a little tap dance in lurex two-piece costumes. An old man with a row of medals watches them. A strong man flexes his muscles outside his tent while a clown with a cigarette in his mouth beats a drum. The strong man lifts a girl above his head and people go inside to see more.

    A man has a go at shooting on a stall. Shot of a tower slide. Nice shots of people on the funfair rides and children watching the fun. Shots of the swingboats in slow motion. Some of them go right up and over the top. A woman on the swing carousel holds onto her hat. View of the fair from a Ferris wheel.

    This is really good footage.
