Night L/S of fancy dress parade passing a crowd. A man dressed as a bishop is carried along on a sedan chair, as he is carried past crowd they wave their arms in a worshiping motion.

Panning shot of bonfire being ignited by row of fireworks hanging above it. Various shots of burning bonfire. The bonfire is in front of a large building with columns - possibly the British Museum?
