A 30 second television advertisement for Vaux Breweries filmed at the Pennywell Comrades Club in Sunderland. On stage, Tyneside comedian Frankie Burns performs while ITV sports commentator Kent Walton sits in the audience. Frankie comes off stage and enjoys a pint of Vaux beer with Kent and members of the audience.

Title: Pennywell Comrades Club, Sunderland

The film opens with an audience inside the Pennywell Comrades Club watching Frankie Burns on stage. A man in the audience takes a sip from his pint of Vaux beer. In the audience Kent Walton sits next to a young blonde woman; both smiling and chatting.

Behind the bar, a pair of hands pulls a pint of Vaux beer. The film changes to show a man drinking from a pint glass. On a metal Vaux tray sits a bottle of Vaux beer which is then poured into a glass. The film cuts back to the man finishing his pint.

Frankie Burn’s comes and sits beside the blonde woman drinking a pint of Vaux beer while Kent speaks with another member of the audience off screen.

The advertisement ends on a tankard of beer with the Vaux logo on the front and male voices singing “Vaux beer brewed in the North by people who love good beer”.
