On June 18th, 1942, a Founder's Day ceremony took place at Beverley Minster. It was attended by the Lord Mayor, members of the clergy, army cadets and scouts. Members of the local community were also in attendance. The film was made by Ernest Symmons who owned the Beverley Playhouse Cinema. He filmed local events for newsreels which he would show before a main feature.
Made by Bill Freeman, this film contains a variety of footage from the 1950s including scenes of Hilderthrope Primary School, Bridlington Spa, and a school sports day.
