On 22nd January 2015, at Hendre Lodge, our Festival President Provincial Grand Master RW Bro Gareth Jones OBE launched the Provincial Grand Lodge of South Wales’ 2021 Festival on behalf of the Royal Masonic Benevolent Institution. This special occasion marked the opening of another important chapter in the history of our wonderful Province which has held no less than 10 Festivals since they began in their present format in 1921. By the end of this Festival, South Wales brethren will have given 100 years of unstinting commitment to support the Central Masonic Charities
We have set ourselves the challenge of raising £5 million over the next 6 years. By working together as a team we can meet this challenge by promoting the benefits of the RMBI and encouraging our members to support the Festival’s two objectives. First to raise money for the Festival Fund and secondly to raise the profile of the RMBI in South Wales so that Freemasons and their families may enjoy the assistance it offers in the future. Please check back here regularly for news and updates. You can also follow us on Twitter @southwales2021 and Facebook https://www.facebook.com/southwales2021festival

A quiz night was held on Monday 27th February, 2017, at the Rose Indienne Restaurant, St Helens Road, Swansea, inviting Swansea Lodges (and non Masons) to attend and show the support that Swansea Lodges continue to provide towards the 2021 Festival. The event was organised by W.Bro. Philip Osborne and the quizmaster on the night, at great expense (not really), was the Deputy Provincial Grand Master, V.W.Bro. Roy Woodward.

The St Cecilia Demonstration Team performed the very first of several unique 1717 Enactment Ceremonies in celebration of the Tercentenary of United Grand Lodge, by kind invitation of Cambrian Lodge 364, at the Neath Masonic Hall on Tuesday 31st January 2017.
The team are aiming to perform this unique Enactment throughout the Province in order to raise funds for the 2021 Festival. St Cecilia Lodge 8748 is very proud to support the 2021 Festival and have recently achieved a Bronze Award.
This is a great example of how Brethen & Lodges can create additional ways to raise further funds towards the 2021 Festival in aid of the Royal Masonic Benevolent Institution. (more…)
