Hail to the May Queen

This old Cyril Chandler Cine Film of the May Queen celebrations is very interesting, Originally thought to be taken in the Wycliffe College grounds, but now we know it is The Leaze now Eastington Hall.

The year is difficult to guess, maybe 1945 but it looks earlier. Its a fascinating insight to time long ago, when we celebrated such things. Who is the head teacher organising events?

Can you recognise any one?
