Christina Walshe; Christina Walshe and Reginald Buckley were co-founders with Boughton of the Fesival which ran from 1914-1926. More information can be found about Christina Walshe in Michael Hurd's biography: 'Rutland Boughton and the Glastonbury Festivals' (OUP 1993).

The writer Christina Walshe was born in 1888, in England.  A Woman to Her Lover and four other poems by her were set to music by the then famous English composer Rutland Boughton, under the title Songs of Womanhood.  She came of age at a  time of great activity in the area of women's rights. Universal suffrage was finally achieved in the United Kingdom in 1928. She died in Vence, France in 1959 where she was teaching.
