Provincial Lecture Competition

Provincial Lecture Competition


After the success of last year’s Provincial Lecture Competition, I am delighted to advise that another 13 Brethren have enthusiastically puts their heads above the parapet to educate, entertain, enthrall and encourage you in a truly eclectic choice of Masonic subjects.

Last year’s lectures were unanimously received with approbation and I invite you to come along and lend your support to our Brethren who have volunteered to assist us in that advancement in Masonic knowledge with wit and wisdom!
