Lodge of Dewi Sant - Festival of St. David Meeting 26 Feb 2016

26 February 2016 - 6:00pm

The 2016 Festival of St. David Meeting

Our 2016 Festival of St. David Meeting will take place on Friday, 26th. February at the Kidderminster Masonic Centre - and will be a meeting to remember!

The principal labour in the Lodge room will be a fascinating and informative presentation entitled: "The Skin of a Lamb: Some of the history, development and hubris behind our masonic aprons" by the Provincial Grand Orator of the Province of Worcestershire, W. Bro. Jeremy Mallin, a member of the Lodge.

Following our labours, we will celebrate the feast day of the Patron Saint of Wales, St. David (Dewi Sant) at our Festive Board; our Worshipful Master, W. Bro. David Williams, will commence proceedings with our traditional ritual opening of the Festive Board, reminiscent of the Bardic Eisteddfod.

We will then enjoy a fine four-course Welsh dinner after which there will be a musical allusion to the action at Rorke’s Drift, Natal on the 22nd January 1879, when members of ‘B’ Company, 2nd. Battalion, the 24th. Regiment of Foot (the South Wales Borderers) assisted by others totalling 139 troops successfully defended the station against a sustained onslaught by 4,500 Zulus. ELEVEN VC’s BEFORE BREAKFAST!

Our happy Festive Board will, as always be punctuated by song and good humour. Visitors are most welcome – subject to spaces being available. Dinner £20 pp.

Please contact the Secretary via welcome@cyfrinfadewisant.org at the earliest opportunity.
