The Board of Grand Stewards 2020-2021 welcomes you to our website ahead of the Grand Festival 2021.

Current circumstances and restrictions prevented the Grand Festival taking place in 2020, and may similarly affect the next Grand Festival.

The Board is working with the United Grand Lodge of England to put in place such plans and alternatives as we can to ensure that the date is marked in the best way we are able when the Festival comes around.

The Grand Festival 2021 marks several landmarks in the history of the United Grand Lodge of England. It is the 300th anniversary of the First Feast, the first formal feast organised by a Grand Steward, and of the Installation of the first noble Grand Master, the Second Duke of Montagu.

It is also the tercentenary of the formation of one of our own Red Apron Lodges, The Lodge of Friendship No 6.
