Events
Many masonic lodges hold events for masons and non-masons alike. The first such event organised by Beaconsfield lodge was a summer outing from Walthamstow to Henley on Thursday July 24 1890. The member enjoyed a river cruise including both luncheon and dinner before returning home.
Over the years, Beaconsfield has organised many such events including Ladies Nights and White Table dinners most recently joining with members from our daughter lodge Beacon Light to attend a Charity quiz afternoon at Freemasons Hall Queen Street, which included a morning tour of the building followed by lunch prior to the afternoons quiz.
