1985 garden party

Item consists of a videocassette which contains raw amateur footage of the Brock House Society annual Garden Faire on July 6, 1985. The Tudor-themed faire was held at on the grounds of Brock House; footage includes shots of the house from many sides, as well as views over Jericho Beach and English Bay. The footage is thematically divided into roughly five parts: faire setup on July 5; the opening ceremonies with faire chairman Dudley Darling as the master of ceremonies introducing Dr. George Halpern who officially opens the faire, dancing to ragtime music (performed by Parks Board Band, conducted by Ray Johnson); executive coordinator Irene Ovenden talking to volunteers and vendors about the faire; musical performances, including the Brock House Choir, conducted by Elva Fitzpatrick Walters, the Brock House Orchestra, conducted by Ron Parkinson, and the Brock House Big Band, conducted by Paul Jagger; and raffle draws for various prizes, and Darling gives a few closing words after the drawings. Throughout the footage the cameraman often pans the camera out over the guests or lingers on subjects of interest such as children or items for sale by the vendors.
