The Full English Archive Open Day

Where: Foyle Suite, Centre for Conservation
The Full English Archive Open Day will give access to some of the original documents of Ralph Vaughan Williams and Percy Grainger, with illustrated talks about the early folk revival and the collectors.
For the first time 19 of the most significant manuscript collections of folk music, song and dance amassed in England during the folk revival of early 20th century are available to browse and search online. Also find out how The Full English digital archive works and can be used, and learn about the project’s development from author and folklorist Steve Roud and EFDSS Library Director Malcolm Taylor OBE. Stay on for the afternoon lecture on Sir John Barbirolli (requires separate booking).
This presentation forms part of the Full English project, supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund and developed by the English Folk Dance and Song Society (EFDSS).
This event is supported by the English Folk Dance and Song Society. Further information
