Braunstone Carnival 1973
Carnival day at Millfield School in Braunstone.
From the collection of:
A bright and colourful carnival with lots of 1970s fashion moments filmed at Braunstone in Leicester by Harold Gamble. Millfield School plays host to this highlight of the 1973 calendar with the usual array of stalls as well as a police dog display, brass band and the women from the local keep fit group. Towards the end of the reel the Millfield Marvels take on the Millfield Rebels in an energetic football match - complete with some very dubious prizes.
