2021 Festival

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

Brecon Jazz Festival Concerts, 13th and 14th August

brecon-jazz16-logoThe two major concerts of this year’s Brecon Jazz Festival will take place in the splendid and acoustically superb setting of Brecon Cathedral.  On Satuday 13 August at 6.00 pm, A Duke Ellington Showcase will feature The Capital City Jazz Orchestra, vocalist sublime Sarah Moule and all-round dancer and entertainer Johnny Tudor.  They will present a programme of Ellington favourites alongside excerpts from some of his landmark but rarely performed large scale works.  On Sunday 14 August at 7.30 pm, the hugely talented Jacqui Dankworth together with her celebrated American singer/songwriter/pianist husband Charlie Wood and stellar group of supporting musicians will deliver a feast of jazz classics, contemporary icons, original compositions and the very best of The Great American Songbook.  Further details of the concerts are attached for your information.

Hopefully many of you will wish to take advantage of this memorable opportunity to enjoy the performances of some true A list artists.  Therefore, in addition to increasing the potential for the full houses which these concerts merit, as a further incentive to Brethren, the Right Worshipful Provincial Grand Master, Right Worshipful Brother Gareth Jones OBE, has readily agreed to the concerts also being used to generate a financial contribution to our 2021 Festival.  I can therefore confirm that 20% of every ticket sold to members of the masonic fraternity and their guests, including the booking fee, will be donated to the 2021 Festival funds.  This means that the Festival will benefit by £2.64 for every ticket sold for the Ellington Showcase.  For Jacqui Dankworth’s concert the return per ticket sold will be £3.08.
