Description

Stratford-upon-Avon, Cecil Sharp and Folk Dancing Festivals. Demonstrations of folk dancing and lectures on the subject, formed part of the Summer Festival inaugurated by the Shakespeare Memorial Theatre in 1910. In 1911, Cecil Sharp attended for the first time and he continued to play an active part until 1915. Three batches of the photographs which follow were dated by the photographer, viz. 1913, 1914 and 1915. The others may record the activities of earlier years, viz. 1910, 1911 or 1912, but have been dated 1910-15. See also, SC42/62-63.
