Silver Jubilee Fancy Dress Parade

We have looked, in the past, at various entries in the 1953 Coronation fancy dress parade. Let’s move on 25 years to 1977 and see what entrants wore for the Silver Jubilee parade.

Celebrating the 1977 Silver Jubilee in Market Lavington

Here we seem to favour historic costumes, with a bit of red white and blue.

There may be fancy dress, but the fashions of the 70s shine through. Look at those flared trousers and the tank-top. And there’s a pair of platform shoes there as well. The baby in the royally coloured babygro does not look entirely happy.

Here we have a Dick Whittington, a fine farm worker or yokel character, Derby and Joan, perhaps and a couple of patriotic waitresses

Three more photos below give an idea of how much the village took the Silver Jubilee to its heart.

As ever, we’d be delighted if anyone out there could name people.
