Seems like some sort of ‘official’ procession? The chap in the lead appears to be dressed as a caveman and the rest are similarly attired!

I reckon it's York.

The Mayor and Alderman are watching an Historical Pageant.

The guy in white, bending down, is a Druid who has dropped his Staff.

Looking at the head-gear on some of the people in it made me think of the "Cinque Ports" (Correct my spelling if it's wrong).

At first glance, I have to admit, I thought it was the bootnecks being given the freedom of the city until I realised

You could be right, it does look quite like a similar illustration of a druid in one of my reference books.1951 doesn't appear to be too late judging by the attire of some of those 'normally' dressed.

Have you anywhere specific in York in mind?

OOPS! - just realised I addressed my comment to fourm member instead of you,sorry!
