  • Description

    Princess Mary attends theatre garden party.

    Location of events unknown - probably London.

    Pan across large crowd of people in a park or gardens with tents or marquees in the background. Looks more like massive garden party or fete.

    M/S of a woman - actress? - standing on a chair beneath a banner that seems to be advertising a play or show called 'Tails Up' (among others). She holds trophy cup up in the air. Lots of people stand around the woman, some in uniform, others in civvies. With a dramatic gesture the woman opens the front of a stack of baskets containing pigeons and the all the birds fly out.

    Shots of people coming out of a tent - personalities? - led by Princess Mary (Princess Royal). Could have been watching a show inside. General view of crowds milling about.

    C/U of man attaching something to the leg of a pigeon then throwing it in the air to fly off.
