This amateur film records the commemorative Victory Parade that took place in central Newcastle upon Tyne on 8th June 1946. The parade includes men and women in the Royal Air Force, Army and Navy, auxiliary forces, voluntary and civil defence services (for instance, the Land Army), and North East industries, along with the Allied and Commonwealth forces in World War Two. Civilian representatives and floats also celebrate the role of The People's Theatre, Reyrolle, and the coal industry (soon to be nationalised), as well as military and North East history. A firework display closes out the day. The film was a Newcastle & District Amateur Cinematographers Association (ACA) production.
