Description:Procession seen outside the King William public house, now the Malt and Hops, on Lichfield Road. The Gang Show float, with gypsy caravan, was probably based on the show's production number 'Romany Revels'.

The annual procession through Stafford ended with a fair on the town common. A prize was awarded to the best decorated entries and along the route collections were made for Stafford General Infirmary.
