Silver Jubilee Events in Wolverhampton 1935

15 mins United Kingdom

The 1935 Silver Jubilee was celebrated up and down the country. Here we see Wolverhampton's contribution, shot by an unidentified film-maker. Events include a civic parade ascending the steps to St Peter's Church (with crowds standing in front of the now long-gone Wholesale Market) and a costumed pageant in the football ground that attracted a large crowd as well as buildings and streets decorated in honour of the royal event.

The Media Archive for Central England is the public screen archive for the East and West Midlands. An independent charity and company based at the University of Lincoln, MACE acquires, catalogues, preserves and makes widely available moving image materials that inform our understanding of the diverse cultures and histories of communities between the Lincolnshire coast and the Welsh border.
