(20221105) UGLE: Manchester Level Club: Third Rising – November 2022 Edition

Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Third Rising from MLC where we have tried to capture some of the things that are happening within the club.


Hewlett Court Annual Fireworks and Bonfire night

The Hewlett Court Annual Fireworks and Bonfire night was back with a bang on Friday 4th November.

Last year, you know what, meant their doors could not be opened to the public. But this year saw the return of the annual event in full force. With over 150 friends and family of Hewlett Court and the Province in attendance, it really was an evening to remember.

The evening was a huge success with funds raised going to The Province of East Lancashire 2026 Festival.

We would like to thank all of the volunteers who helped on the evening and a special shout out goes to Tom and Elliot from the club. We hope to be back next year!


Especial Meeting of United Grand Lodge

Did you see that there is going to be an Especial Meeting of United Grand Lodge on 31st January 2023 to celebrate the tercentenary of the publication of the Constitutions of the Freemasons in 1723, often referred to as Anderson’s Constitutions?

The tercentenary will be marked throughout 2023, beginning with this Especial meeting of Grand Lodge. Admission to the Meeting is free of charge, but with places limited to 1600, strictly by ticket only. There will also be an opportunity to join the Pro Grand Master for a reception and lunch afterwards at a supplementary cost.

All Freemasons are welcome to attend, including Entered Apprentices and Fellowcrafts. This is also a break with the usual traditions and a very rare opportunity for all Brethren to attend a meeting at United Grand Lodge.

The Grand Temple will open at 11.30 am and the Especial meeting will commence at 12.30 pm. It is anticipated that the lunch will be at 2.00 pm.

Should you wish to attend this Especial Meeting, please email the Provincial Grand Secretary using email address chriswildman@eastlancsmasons.org.uk no later than Thursday 10 November, indicating whether you wish to attend the lunch. Any travel arrangements will be your responsibility.

German beer, gluhwein and a big pan of German delights!

Can only mean the traditional German Markets are back for the festive season. Given we are due a social, then what a great way to remind ourselves of what we have been missing for the last 12 months.

If you fancy tagging along with a few other MLC members, we are planning on testing out the offering on Friday 25th November. To make things easy, we are planning to meet at The Bridge Tavern on Bridge Street at 7pm.

Hope to see you there!

All things light blue! With Christmas coming up, you may want to add some things on to your list for Santa once you take a look at the new MLC Shop. There are some fantastic new MLC items for sale all in support of the 2026 Festival. We particularly like the Blue Festival Hoodie.
