This lively colour film records the coming of age party in Bollington, Cheshire, for local girl Christine Wainwright. Here are Christine's friends and family, dancing and drinking in a crowded social club, and all ages seem to be having fun. Being 21 is a landmark birthday, after all, and one to to be enthusiastically celebrated.
