♪♪ Autumn Ball ♪♪


The Lodge has held on several occasions an Autumn Ball with the venue at the Sparth House Hotel in Clayton le Moors. It is an informal Ladies Evening with no speeches, but an event to say thank you to our Ladies. It also gives the Ladies a chance to put on their party frocks and dance. As always at any Ladies Evening the Men dress formally in their Evening/Dinner Suits or dark suits and bow ties.

The evening consists of pre-dinner drinks, a three or more-course meal, sometimes with entertainment during the meal. After the meal, dancing until midnight to either to live music or a disco.

These events are usually well attended by members, their wives/partners, friends and guests both Masonic and Non-Masonic.

Here is a video of one such Ladies Evening captured in still photographs and arranged to music by Ray Godwin.
