Friends and family of Ruth and Moses Nightingale are entertained by a brass band (the West Crawly Silver Band?) in the garden of the family's Crawley home 'Hazeldene'. The immediate family gathers again on Boxing Day, performing to the camera in march-pasts, exiting and re-entering the house. The footage was shot by at least two members of the family.
