'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.'
