  • Short Summary

    Religious procession in Warrington - people carry statues of Christ and the Virgin Mary.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Warrington 'Walk' - an event which dates back to half a Century - celebrated with Pageant of Colour.

    Warrington, Cheshire.

    Children dressed mainly in white walk past crowds along road.

    More shots of the the children's procession - lots of the girls are dressed in white and they are carrying a banner which reads 'Sancta Maria' and an statue of the Virgin with child - I assume it is some kind of Roman Catholic ceremony.

    More shots of the procession - a group of men carry a statue of Jesus Christ and a cross.

    The procession passes a saluting platform where a man in civic regalia (probably the Mayor) is saluting.
