Public events + private celebrations -

Public events can be very interesting, especially if you include not just the heart of the occasion, but what is happening before, after and around it. One picture in this slide show is of the choir at a celebration of the Scandinavian festival of Santa Lucia at York Minster after having travelled all the way from Sweden and rehearsing all afternoon. Another is of the shadow Chancellor, John McDonnell at York station waiting for his train back to London after addressing a meeting that was organised by the students of York Union. A third is the famous film director Ken Loach during a question and answer session after the screening of one of his politically powerful films at City Screen: there was virtually no light on him and it was shot hand held at 1/5th sec, but the red light on the screen behind him is a perfect expression of his socialist principles.
