Jude Kelly to Give Second Mary Neal Lecture at Cecil Sharp House, London, 26th May 2011
This year’s Mary Neal Lecture with EFDSS at Cecil Sharp House in Camden, London will be given by Jude Kelly OBE. Jude is a highly respected theatre practitioner and currently Artistic Director of the Southbank Centre and a member of the Cultural Olympiad Committee.
The Mary Neal Lecture was begun in 2009 when Lucy Neal, Mary’s great-great-niece and founder of the London International Festival of Theatre, deposited the Mary Neal Archive in the Vaughan Williams Memorial Library. Mary Neal was a reformer, suffragette and radical arts practitioner. A great spirit behind the early 20th century folk dance and song revival, Mary set up The Espérance Club in Somerstown teaching young working girls and children among other things folk dance.
