Although the film starts with shots of the Duke Of York addressing the crowd of children from the Royal Box, attention is mainly on the circus being held on the Wembley pitch and the delighted response of the watching children. Includes lovely close-ups of kids in stitches as they watch the clowns cause mayhem in their tumbledown jalopies.
