This film shows a Burns family holiday to the Butlin's camp at Skegness. The film opens with a series of portrait shots of two women in white Butlin's monogrammed uniforms, posing for the camera, followed by a series of shots of a young child in a pram outside a chalet; a large group of guests dancing in a hall (includes a female Redcoat host); a view of the empty pool; the holiday camp sign; and closing with shots of a diving and boating competition on the pool.
