    Full title reads: "Chester. With famous Racecourse as 'Village Green'. 2,000 dancers recapture spirit of 'Merrie England' in monster carnival of song & dance."

    Chester, Cheshire.

    Pan across crowd gathered at Chester Racecourse. Morris dancers move in time to music through the crowd. A brass band stands in the foreground.

    More men in odd costume walk through the crowd.
