Description

This is a film of the Holmfirth Drama Society relaxing and having a dress rehearsal.

The film begins with a group of people having tea in a garden, with children playing on the lawn.  They take tea and cakes from a table whilst a small girl and boy play. 

The film switches to show a group of people around what looks like a mobile stage.  Nearby some are getting dressed up in historic costume next to a large truck.  On the stage someone is dressed as a crusading knight, draped in the flag of St George.  He has a sword fight with a man dressed in black, whilst another, dressed in a Father Christmas type costume, looks on.  Another group stand next to a large car (Reg. KGM550).  There is a brief return to the play, before the film ends with cows in a field.
