    Liverpool, Merseyside.

    Intertitle: "Hundreds of light-hearted students parade in Town in every variety of Fancy Dress".

    M/S of students in fancy dress sitting inside and on top of a convertible car, they are clowning about and laughing. Good C/U of a group of students, one plays a penny whistle, others have 'blacked-up' faces. L/S of the car driving away from the camera, it is full of students having a good time, some are waving, one student chases behind the car trying to jump on.

    M/S of students sitting on the back of a float - they are singing and swaying. The float moves through the streets of Liverpool, more students stand on the back of the float waving balloons. The streets are lined with crowds, a horse drawn cart carries more students in silly clothes. M/S of a group of students larking about dressed as cavemen - they pretend to fight.
