Wednesday 7th March 2018:
From time to time the Daggards bring out a new production. The debut of Blow up the DC at the Festive Board gives you the chance of exploding the Director of Ceremonies. In typical Daggards fashion, a team of Masonic actors; Rob Atkinson, Mike Noble, Richard Smedley, David Terry and Eddie Wildman will present the Brethren with a number of Festive Board Scenarios. The audience then has the opportunity of airing comments and observations before the team gives the official verdicts. Test how observant you are: can you spot the deliberate mistakes? Which bits went well and which were inappropriate? Warning - you may recognise some of the scenes!
The team will select a member of the Brethren to press the plunger and blow up the DC at the end of the presentation . . . it could be you!
The premier performance takes place at Kingston Lodge 1010 at the Masonic Hall, 69 Beverley Road, Hull HU3 1XL, tyling at 1800 hrs. To book a place, contact the Lodge Secretary, Neil Armstrong email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone him on 0781 8845 268 or landline (01482) 820850.
The WM, W Bro Louis Morgan assures all concerned that the Festive Board following the meeting will be of the usual high standard whether the DC survives the explosion or not.
There is excellent on-site car parking, but if your vehicle is not already registered with the Masonic Hall, be sure to register it (free) as soon as you arrive: non-authorised parking will incur a fine.

Humber Lodge 57 has asked for a Daggards presentation in Hull while Eddie and Mike are performing in the Masonic Province of Yorkshire West Riding, and W Bros Craig Maurier and David Terry (who are both Past Masters of the Humber Lodge) have agreed to put on the iconic I Know the Answers - But What do the Questions Mean? - a light hearted but informative explanation of the significance of the questions and answers exchanged at the end of the 1st degree ceremony. This illustrated dialogue will be of particular interest to young Freemasons, as the reasons behind the way the Candidate is prepared including the way he is dressed are given in typical Daggards fashion. While Humber Lodge has a number of newcomers, Entered Apprentices, Fellow Crafts and young Master Masons from elsewhere are encouraged to join in this voyage of discovery.
