Trevor Stone (1939 – 2009) was a keen longsword dancer and archivist who
amassed a large collection of longsword related ephemera, hundreds of hours
of films, audio and photographs.
Trevor’s wife, Elaine Stone gifted the collection to the Museum of British
Folklore,who, in conjunction with Trevor’s daughter, Georgia and
granddaughter, Rosa will present these unique artefacts at Cecil Sharp House
this autumn. The exhibition will feature costumes, pamphlets and a selection
of Trevor’s personal photographs and films of longsword events, offering a
rich insight into the life of one of the foremost supporters and promoters
of longsword dancing in Britain.
Trevor was also the founder and editor of Rattle Up, My Boys, a publication
dedicated to longsword dancing.
The exhibition will run until January 2014 and is curated by the Museum of British Folklore with Georgia and Rosa Stone
