  • Description

    Full title reads: "PLUM PUDDINGS IN PROCESSION - Harvest-home feast at Brent Knoll, Somerset."

    Brent Knoll, Somerset.

    People gather around the church for Thanksgiving service in village of Brent Knoll. A group of women is seen, each holding plum pudding high in the air and smiling into camera. Puddings are made for the Harvest Home Celebration. Men carrying huge pie (big enough to feed the village, probably steak and kidney pie since voiceover mentions beef) followed by men carrying a large cheese, parading in front of camera.

    Women parading with their puddings through long lines of tables filled with people ready for their meal. Men follow with the rest of the food and drinks - great atmosphere. A man cuts large piece of cheese and places it into someone's plate. Another man rises from the table and speaks about the great food - people cheer.
