The 351st Marbles Championship is played at Tinsley Green before a huge crowd.
Tinsley Green, West Sussex.
Various shots of the 351st Marbles Championship being played before an enormous crowd in the forecourt of the Old Greyhound Inn. Crawley busmen play against a team from Copthorne. An old man with a beard takes his turn at flicking a marble.
C/U of a pocket watch reading 12 o'clock; commentator says someone's just remembered they're open (the pub); brief section of speeded up footage showing spectators walking about. Several shots of the crowd at odd angles, as if we have just come out of the pub after one drink too many.
C/U of the old bearded man, named as old Sam Spooner who won the championship 50 years ago. Stanelli (could be the entertainer / violinist) presents a trophy cup to Marksman Wicks as individual champion of the winning Copthornes team.
