Following a highly successful series in Manchester, the VWML Lectures return home to Cecil Sharp House in 2018.
Over the last two years the VWML has organised two highly successful series of library lectures given by leading researchers in the field, with topics ranging from Night Visiting Songs to Hammer Dulcimer Players in East Anglia. We are therefore pleased to announce a series of Vaughan Williams Memorial Library Lectures to be given at Chetham’s Library, in Manchester.
The VWML presented a series of evening talks by guest speakers, covering a range of topics on traditional dance, song, music, and customs from January - April 2016.
