As there are limited places at the Royal Albert Hall and even fewer seats at the dinner afterwards at Battersea Evolution there will be a streaming of the event in the Grand Temple at Freemasons’ Hall, which will be followed by a dinner afterwards in the Grand Connaught Rooms.
The screening will be on a giant screen constructed on the dais in front of the Grand Organ and easily visible to all present. Entrance to this event is just £10, which will include a free 72 page A4 Tercentenary commemorative brochure (usual price £10).
The screening and the dinner afterwards in the Grand Connaught Rooms will be attended by the wives and partners of the Grand Masters of recognised Grand Lodges from around the world as well as other distinguished brethren from other constitutions. The dinner will be hosted by RWBro the Rt Hon the Earl Cadogan, PDepGM, and RWBro Simon Duckworth OBE DL PJGW, Deputy Metropolitan Grand Master.
Rig for both screening and dinner: Gentlemen – Lounge suits – no regalia – Ladies equivalent.
The dinner will commence with a champagne reception followed by a four course dinner including carefully selected red and white wines.
