EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a moment of pure childhood joy at the annual Laing sports day held in Elstree, Greater London. The image showcases a group of children gathered around to watch a Punch and Judy show, their faces filled with excitement and wonder. Taken in 1965 at the Laing Sports Ground on Rowley Lane, this event was much more than just a typical sports day. In addition to traditional activities like football and athletics, there were also whimsical novelty events such as sack races and even a Donkey Derby. The organizers made sure that children had plenty of entertainment options too, including go-kart races, fancy dress competitions, and pony rides. The atmosphere depicted in this photograph is one of festive celebration. Colourful bunting adorns the scene, adding an extra touch of cheerfulness to the occasion. It's clear that both young participants and spectators alike were fully immersed in the spirit of Laing's community gathering. This image serves as a nostalgic reminder of simpler times when puppet shows like Punch and Judy brought endless delight to children's lives. Preserved by Historic England Archive, it immortalizes not only an important cultural tradition but also highlights the importance placed on providing wholesome entertainment for youngsters during festivities.
