Tercentenary Celebrations 2017

Each Province throughout England, Wales and the Channel Islands will be organising its own special events to celebrate the landmark of 300 Years since the formation of the first Grand Lodge in the world. As Freemasons we are rightly proud of this achievement and pledge ourselves to the continued prosperity of our Order for centuries to come.

As part of our own celebrations we have joined together with our neighbouring Provinces in Shropshire, Staffordshire and Warwickshire to arrange for a Family Fun Weekend under the title of “M Fest 300” to be held at Weston Park, the seat of the Earls of Bradford, at Weston-under-Lizard, Staffordshire, TF11 8LE, on the 24th and 25th June 2017.

There will be all forms of entertainment for the children including a fun fair, adventure playground, model railway rides, kids fun run, and many more activities. The general adult entertainment will include brass bands, a classic car display, hot air balloon rides, an evening concert with a Picnic in the Park and concluding with a firework extravaganza. All in all, this will be a memorable weekend of celebration with our families and friends that will underline the message of the enjoyment of our membership of this great Masonic Fraternity.

The M Fest 300 Committee comprises representatives of each of the Provinces and they are anxious to provide the very best quality and variety of entertainments for you at the event; and to this end are hoping to raise additional funds for the provision of these facilities, by each Lodge being gifted a special bottle of whisky to raffle with the proceeds to go to the Committee. This however will be no ordinary whisky – it is a very fine 10 year old single Malt from the Glenfarclas Distillery set in the heart of Speyside, near Grantown-on-Spey, which will be in a commemorative box and include a Certificate of Authenticity bearing the signatures of all four Provincial Grand Masters.

You are encouraged to undertake the raffle at your next Installation Meeting in order to maximise the number of participants.

Your support for this discrete fundraising initiative will be greatly appreciated. It will help to provide the best possible entertainment for “M Fest 300” next year. As one of the sponsors, this will secure the name and number of your Lodge in the Souvenir Programme.

The website is now live please visit http://www.mfest300.org for more information and apply for your tickets.
