Introduction Launch by the Festival President

Brethren,

On 22nd January 2015, at Hendre Lodge, I was delighted to launch 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 (The Grand Charity, Royal Masonic Trust for Girls and Boys, Masonic Samaritan Fund and the RMBI).
