Wednesday 2nd May 2018:
Kingston Lodge 1010 will be holding its Founders Night meeting in May which will include an illustrated Penny Dreadful presentation in the Lodge Room and a number of musical items at the Festive Board, with the debut Daggard appearance of Brother Alistair Lamyman, who has agreed to sing for this event. Kingston Lodge dates back to 1864, and some of its eventful history has been characteristically captured in cartoon format by W Bro Eddie Wildman, to be displayed with the erudite commentary of W Bro Neil Armstrong. The Worshipful Master, W Bro Louis Morgan has invited the Kingston Brethren and the visitors to wear appropriate Victorian garb, or white tie and tails, or dinner jackets for this occasion, but will be pleased to see visitors in regular Masonic dress. You are invited to book in early for this occasion, contacting the Kingston Lodge Steward, Bro Gary Crossland, telephone (text) 0749 638 2088; (landline)  715589 or email firstname.lastname@example.org as the meal will match the munificence of the occasion. Kingston Lodge meets at 69 Beverley Road, Hull, and drivers are warned to take particular care when turning into the car park as they must cross a bus lane which is active until six o' clock (cameras.) The Lodge tyles at 6:00 pm.
There is an excellent car park, which is free. However, visitors who are not already registered (details within the Lodge) must do so as unregistered vehicles will incur a fine. Better still, come in a taxi and enjoy an extra glass of port!

The event is 6:30 for 7:00 pm to enable people to have a friendly drink at the Dagger Lane bar before the three course meal. Tickets (£12.00 per head) are available from W Bro Whitfield: email email@example.com or telephone (01482) 634175.
