• Short Summary

    Group of middle-aged women on day trip to fairground and promenade at Southend.

  • Description

    Title reads: "Mum's Day Out".

    Southend, Essex.

    Good side shot of party of women getting of coach. Various shots of group of middle-aged women on day's outing to seaside - look like they are having the time of their lives! We see them at the Kursaal Fairground: on roller coaster, an aeroplane ride, the waltzer, waterchute, toboggan run and the crazy house. M/S of two women in funny paper hats drinking beer from bottle (look like Les Dawson characters). M/S of women walking along promenade at seaside, cannot see the sea.

    The commentary is in character of cockney husband left at home to do housework while wife goes off to enjoy herself.
