Festival Of Britain

I had forgotten what the festival of Britain was all about so I have checked with Google and  it ’Celebrated the Nation’s Recovery after the Second World War’.   Do you remember the pageant on Hird’s field in Loftus and were you there? I think this was Mavis Cuthbert under the disguise; some of those around her are:- Pat Vasey, Ann Dodsworth and Barbara Craggs, any other names welcomed.
