Festival of Britain celebrations, Newton Chambers.

Part of the celebrations featured ‘Games & Customs of 100 Years Ago’ that included country dancing, maypole dancing and ‘old time’ cricket. But there were also more modern amusements including an outdoor circus with tight rope walkers and trick cyclists, a model aircraft flying display and, as shown here, fairground style amusements for the children.
