This is a film of a religious procession which took place most likely for Mayday or in honour of Mary the Blessed Mother. The location of the film is unknown, but based on the reference to St. Patrick and the anchor symbolizing a maritime connection, the film may possibly be related to St. Patrick’s Church in Hull.
This is one of a collection of films made by the Selby Cine Club.

It shows pedestrians and traffic in the town centre, many of the shops, and includes the Toll Bridge, the Monday market, the Reverend John Kent giving a tour of the Abbey, the shipyard, the BOCM Mill, and a Council meeting.
This is a film of the Scout Group of St Thomas Groves, Lord Mayor’s Own, York, out on an event in York with other Scout, Cub and Girl Guide groups.
This is film of several performances in a theatre, filmed from somewhere in the stalls. It includes a Christmas show, song and dance routines, and comedy.
The performance starts with performers seated in a long line on the stage. They are singing and suddenly stand up and display the letters spelling “Christmas”. There is then an act with a man in shorts and a long white beard on a tricycle. This is followed by a routine involving the singing of 'Good Pull-Up For Cyclists' – a popular variety feature written by Ernest Longstaffe – holding up the lyrics for the audience to sing along to. The act seems to involve cycling and the boy scouts. There are women dancing in formation and comedy acts, as well as, presumably, excerpts from musicals, as well as a school performance and a performance of ukulele players.
