The Housmans engaged in the social and cultural life of Street. Laurence’s cycle of
plays based on the life of St Francis were performed regularly at the Glastonbury
Festival, where Roger was a keen patron and supporter from its beginnings in 1913.
Laurence became involved in the organisation of the festival until it closed in 1926,
partly following Rutland Boughton’s withdrawal from the project in the 1920s.
Laurence became a Quaker in 1951. Following Clemence’s death after a long illness
in 1955, Laurence became increasingly dependent on Roger and Sarah Clark. He died
in Butleigh Hospital in 1959 and is buried at Street Meeting House.
