This is a film made by the Rev. David Simpson of the National Garden Festival in Stoke-On-Trent.

A DCE Film Production: National Garden Festival

Visitors walk around looking at the exhibits and flowers. There are model homes, and children play on some swings. Among the attractions are a canal with longboats, with the canal Heritage Arms, and a brass band. A classical trio play in a greenhouse near a sculpture of a reclining nude. Visitors tour the site on a cable car. They see a water fountain, miniature railway and air balloons. There are more flower displays with visitors carrying plants they have purchased. There is a Japanese Water Garden, more fountains and Morris Dancers. The film finishes showing a thatched cottage and a hand-wound draw-bridge over the canal.
