Gala Day JLP01_08_081384a

Laing Sports Ground, Rowley Lane, Elstree, Barnet, Greater London. A view of a fairground carousel and stalls, with crowds gathered on a sports pitch beyond, during a Gala Day held at the Laing Sports Ground at Elstree.
A Gala Day was held by Laing at the Laing Sports Ground on 14th June 1969, as a replacement of the annual Sports Day. Sports events were held by the Sports Club, which included hockey, tennis, bowls, and football tournaments. A traditional English fete programme featured coconut shies, bingo, pony rides, catering and a beer tent, candy floss, and roundabouts. The day ended with a beauty contest, prize draw, and the election of Miss Sports Club. In the evening there was a firework display and a gala dance which continued until midnight. This photograph and JLP01/08/081384 formed a panorama which was published in the August 1969 edition of Team Spirit, the Laing employee newsletter

1960s Fair Festival Laing Spirit Sports Ground Merry Go Round


EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the vibrant atmosphere of a Gala Day held at the Laing Sports Ground in Elstree, Greater London. Taken on 14th June 1969, this event served as a replacement for the annual Sports Day and was organized by Laing. The sports club hosted various tournaments including hockey, tennis, bowls, and football to entertain the enthusiastic crowd. The image showcases a bustling fairground carousel surrounded by stalls that offer traditional English fete activities such as coconut shies, bingo games, pony rides, and mouthwatering catering options. The joyful ambiance is palpable as crowds gather on the adjacent sports pitch to enjoy the festivities. As dusk settles in, anticipation builds for the evening's highlights. A beauty contest takes place alongside an exciting prize draw and ultimately culminates with the election of Miss Sports Club. To conclude this memorable day with a bang (quite literally), a spectacular firework display illuminates the night sky. Published in Team Spirit - Laing's employee newsletter - in August 1969 along with another panoramic shot from JLP01/08/081384a photograph series; this image serves as a nostalgic reminder of an unforgettable celebration filled with laughter and merriment.
