Summary

This film shows a Burns family holiday to the Butlin's Holiday club in Clacton, playing in a playground, on a miniature railway and on several fairground style rides. The children race model boats on a small pond, before making a visit to Clacton Beach to build sand castles. The film closes with shots of a large crowd gathered around the main swimming pool at the Butlin's Holiday club, to watch a swimming competition.
