Lodge Dewi Sant - Festival of St David

23 February 2018 - 6:00pm

Cyfrinfa Dewi Sant No. 9135

Final Call for The 2018 Festival of St. David Meeting - Kidderminster Masonic Centre - Friday, 23rd. February 

We already have a very healthy attendance confirmed for our Annual Festival of St. David Meeting next Friday but there are still a few places available.  If brethren would like to attend, they should confirm their booking by 6pm on TUESDAY, 20th. FEBRUARY.

This will be a (relatively short) Regular Meeting and the main item of labour will be to receive a highly entertaining presentation of W. Bro. Alex Sinton's excellent lecture “I support Manchester United, Why do I Have to Wear Light Blue?” - his entry in the Provincial Lecture Competition.

Our famous festive board will commence with the ceremonial opening of the Gathering at the Tables, carried out by the Worshipful Master and the newest member of the lodge, an Entered Apprentice. The ceremony alludes to the ancient Welsh bardic tradition which has been adopted at modern meetings of the National Eisteddfod.

This will be followed by an excellent dinner after which we will commence our interactive musical interlude which will include much humour and uplifting singing, culminating in our famous musical allusion to the 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 (40 of whom were hospitalised) successfully defended the station at Rorke's Drift, Natal, South Africa against a sustained onslaught by 4,500 Zulus. ELEVEN VC’s BEFORE BREAKFAST! 

Our dining fee for the evening will be £22.00 pp including Wines and Port.

The menu for the meeting will be:

~~~ Leek & Potato Soup ~~~

~~~ Roast Welsh Lamb with Mint Sauce, Roast Potatoes and Seasonal Vegetables ~~~

~~~ Snowdon Pie and Custard ~~~

~~~ Cheese, Grapes & Biscuits ~~~

Coffee and Mints
