Made by Mercury Movie Makers, this film documents a sports day and fete which take place in Arncliffe village in order to raise funds to put towards the rebuilding of the village hall. Arncliffe is a small village in North Yorkshire whose houses, cottages, and other buildings face in towards a large green, and outwards to green hillsides etched with limestone scars. The village was the original setting for the fictional village of Beckindale in the ITV soap opera Emmerdale Farm, from its inception in 1972 until the relocation to Esholt.
This is a film of a boys school, most likely Blenheim Boys School, Leeds partaking of a series of school events during the late 1950s. These events include a rugby match, Christmas celebrations, swimming at Meanwood Baths, table tennis, sports at Temple Newsam, and a trip to Hawes and York.
