Adults young and old cram into the house in Porthcawl (probably) for George’s party. There is beer and sherry, and the kettle goes on for those who fancy tea. A little boy enjoys the limelight for a bit and mother checks the baby upstairs. Another day it’s dressing up in old-timey American clothes for an event, and then it’s Christmas Day, with a sing-song in the morning followed by turkey and tea. In the new year, the family – and Mickey Mouse - venture out to the prom at Porthcawl.
