1970s Gala Days

Here's another photograph recently sent in to the Cathedral office... though rather different from most of the old black-and-white photographs being sent in for the 150th celebrations (yes, please keep them coming!). This one shows one of the Cathedral Gala Days (believed to be 1975/6). The events were held in the grounds of Nazareth House but the fesitvities began with a fancy-dress parade through the city, beginning at the Cathedral. This year the theme was the hit TV show 'the Magic Roundabout'. Why can't we still do things like this?!
