The film opens with the title "Coronation Horsham 19 - Sussex - 53". This is followed by shots of street scenes in Carfax with the bandstand elaborately decorated as a crown. Shots of a house are followed by the title "Upper Bennetts Rd Party". Children sit at long tables arranged in the road; adults pour tea from large teapots. Shots of the children show them taking part in various races, including a sack race. An intertitle reads: "All the runners". There are more shots of children and adults taking part in races; lanes have been specially marked on the road. Shots of the adults joining in with the sack race are followed by children queuing up with their parents to be given a souvenir coronation mug (?). Some children in fancy dress stand in line and are given coins (?) and other presents. A still shows a photograph portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. A final title reads: "Thanks to the organisers from us. Good show". The film ends with three men standing in front of the camera waving.
