Day 11:  19th Jun 2015

A Summer Gala

A brass band, balloons ... and a man on fire diving from a high platform! Can you guess the location, year, and reason for the celebrations?

This film was made during an important year in York's history - were you part of the celebrations? The location was the sports field of a local school. Do you know which school and also what the field is used for now?

~ The year was 1971, when York celebrated its 1900th anniversary. The location was the playing field in front of Bootham Park Hospital, used at the time by York College for Girls.

CineSecrets: York runs from 9th to 21st June 2015
