Saturday 28th October
is the Installation meeting at our Club lodge,
Burgoyne Lodge No. 902
Join us at Freemason’s Hall from 4.30pm for the installation of our new Worshipful Master, our very dapper ex-Chairman, WBro. Mitchell Merrick-Thirlway.
We will celebrate and dine afterwards, so save the date and we will release the summons and final details closer to the time

Taking a similar format to our own (and original) Open Reception, the New Mason’s Receptions are designed to give those who have just been initiated into the Craft the chance to learn a little more about what they have just joined. The Club are always represented at the event with our own stall, and we usually provide a guest speaker also.

As we celebrate the 300th Anniversary of the United Grand Lodge of England, Metropolitan Grand Lodge endeavour to prepare an impressive display of their members through the streets of the City. This is an exceptional opportunity to show the public the excellence and generosity of our unique organisation, and to raise awareness of our continued help and support for others. The Club will, of course, be represented with our own walker and banner. However, if you wish to join in please visit Porchway for further details.

The Club welcomes the Most Eminent and Supreme Grand Master, Paul Raymond Clement GCT, who will be telling us a little about the story of the KT and answering our questions. The Grand Master will be aided by R.E.Kt. Viv Thomas who will be presenting a comprehensive history of the Masonic KT. It will be an interesting and insightful evening.
Following the seminar, we will enjoy wine and nibbles.
The event will be held at 6.30pm in the Grand Temple at Freemasons’ Hall which is a spectacular venue in which to meet and enjoy each other’s company.
The event is Free to Members. Non-Members may attend at the price of £5.00.

The tenth Christmas Dinner has been confirmed: Friday the 8th of December at Boodle’s!!
The Christmas Dinner is never one to be missed, and this year it will be extra-special, as it will be our tenth. We will be inviting some of the former members to join us too.
We shall have a sparkling wine reception in the drawing room, before heading upstairs for a sumptuous three-course dinner with half a bottle of wine per person, and port afterwards. There will be a jolly, festive, table quiz. The Mitchell Merrick-Thirlway Memorial Prize for the most garish and aesthetically-offensive bow tie, as well as a sing-a-long of some festive classics. After dinner, we shall retire to the members’ bar for further jocularity.
Tickets are £80 for the evening, with a cash bar available after dinner. The normal fees for using Eventbrite ticketing are absorbed for current members, but – alas – passed on for former members.
There are three options to buy tickets:
- Pay upfront and get it out of the way.
- Pay on ‘easy terms’, with the ticket cost spread over eight months (£10 per month)
- Pay upfront if you are a former member. This is the only ticket option for former members.
Tickets are expected to sell out quickly, and you only have until the end of April to buy your tickets on ‘easy terms’. Full details for the easy terms will be emailed after your initial purchase. Remember, this event is members only (and former members on this occasion)!

BOOK NOW TO JOIN THE CLUB ON A ONCE IN A LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY!
We will be supporting our young Irish brothers by travelling to Dublin to witness the Consecration of a new lodge in the home of Irish Freemasonry – the Grand Lodge of Ireland. The magnificent building hosts some of the most beautiful lodge rooms in the world, and houses some of the most interesting ritual in the Masonic community.
We will arrive on Friday 12th January and enjoy the Consecration ceremony and dinner thereafter. The lodge is being founded with a view of being the meeting place for young Freemasons in Dublin. The young Freemasons of Scotland are also joining so it will be a real celebration of the young Masonic movement!
On Saturday (after waking up with sore heads) we will be shown around Dublin with a private bicycle tour. I am told it’s very safe, easy, and by far the best way to see the beautiful Georgian city. After the tour we will visit the Guinness Brewery before heading to Temple Bar for a slap up meal and maybe even another pint of the black stuff.
We will travel back on Sunday with happy memories and new friends. This really will be a brilliant trip!
