The Dance Scholarship Trust are delighted to announce that the three 2014 Scholars – Elgan Jones, Dearbhail Keating and Charles Wellingham – have successfully completed their Lethaby and Plunket Scholarships. After nine months packed with education, experience and some very fine sketchbooks, our newest Scholars are looking forward to returning to full-time work in the conservation of historic structures. Good luck from all at the Trust!
You are cordially invited…

The Dance Scholarship Trust reports in sorrow the passing of our great patron, Candida Lycett Green, who died following pancreatic cancer on 19th August this year. Candida brought a great passion and enthusiasm to her patronage, and we are proud to say that she took our mission to heart. It will be a formidable task to replace her role, and our thoughts go out to her family at this very difficult time.
Candida’s daughter Imogen is now fundraising for Pancreatic Cancer Action, a registered charity. Anyone who is interested in donating funds following Imogen’s long-distance cycle should visit her Just Giving page located here.
Further news with an excellent obituary was published in The Guardian newspaper on Wednesday 20th August, and can be accessed here.
