What on earth is this archive photo from November 2000 all about?

If anyone can enlighten us about this photo, found in the Echo archives and dated from November 2000, we would be very grateful.

Every possible question is there to be answered as the photo has no details to accompany it.

For a start we don’t know where it was taken, we also don’t know who the individuals in it are, why are they gathered together and what it is that they are all looking at?

If you can provide any answers to these questions please email steve.barton@haverhillecho.com.
