History of the Craig Lecture
The Craig Lecture fund was not set up by the STR but is one whose management we have inherited. Its original aim was to promote an annual lecture as a memorial to Edward Gordon Craig, by using the income to specifically award researchers working on Craig. Finding a lecturer with something new to say proved difficult in recent years, so the Society persuaded the Charity Commissioners to modify the terms, allowing money to be spent on lectures with a broader reference to Craig's work and influence.
The fund still, however, produces more income than the Society can properly use. The Committee was very pleased, therefore, when it was approached by teachers at the Central School of Speech and Drama who wished to include an annual lecture on Craig in their open programme - open, that is, to the public as well as their students. It was agreed that the CSSD would organize and promote the event while the Society would make a contribution to the costs.
You will find the complete listings for the Central School's programme on their website www.cssd.ac.uk, where it also says: Seminars, lectures, round tables and presentations are free and open to the public, but space is limited and booking is essential.
