Saturday 28th May saw the long awaited 2025 Festival Ball, by the Provincial Grand Stewards, an event that had been in the planning for a few years, (we all know what got in the way!)
So, at 17:30, members of the Province, family and friends gathered in the foyer of the Ashford International Hotel, a champagne reception, with music from Harpist Graham West and Flautist Kylie West, they provided a fantastic ambiance to the start of the evening.
At 18:30 on the dot, the Master of Ceremonies Peter Thompson FNAT called everyone to take their seats, Grace was given by Richard Dixey and the evening started with excitement and an air of anticipation of what was to come.
Overall, a fantastic night of entertainment, well done to the winner of the Orient Express Prize Draw.
Overall, the evening raised in excess of £12,000.
With proceeds going to the Masonic Charitable Foundation, via the 2025 Festival.
Thank you everyone, Lodges and Chapters for supporting the evening.
See You Next Year!
