The Building of Cecil Sharp House

An illustrated guide by Brenda Godrich.


A world-class dedicated folk arts centre, Cecil Sharp House is at the heart of English folk. This fascinating and insightful booklet tells the story of how Cecil Sharp House came to be built.

The narrative starts with the man who founded the English Folk Dance Society and to whom the headquarters building was dedicated after his death.

With a unique history stretching back to 1930, the venue exists to serve its wide and diverse audiences and continue adding to the rich history - from bomb damage to the 60ft Ivon Hitchens mural the early years are recorded in this easy-to-read booklet. The iconic Grade II listed building is home to EFDSS and the Vaughan Williams Memorial Library, England's national collection of folk music and dance.
