Behind is the fun fair, to the left is music from the Village Inn cabaret tent, and to the right is music from a dance tent. Towards the end of the recording the West Midlands Fire Brigade bring up the tail of the parade, adding sirens and air horns to the sound of the crowd. It's Gay Pride, as it is every year at the end of May, and Hurst Street is heaving with party goers. The photo was taken just a few metres further down the road in 2009.
