What a lovely evening that was hosted for Brief2Event and Square Events Management by the 5 Star, Exclusive Hotel Lainston House. Lainston House is a 17th century country house standing in 63 acres of beautiful Hampshire countryside. Perhaps the most spectacular view is from the hotel bar as the lawn stretches pristinely into the distance along a tree lined avenue.

Onsite they have a wonderful kitchen garden where they grow and use all their own fresh ingredients, the different aroma’s you get walking through is just out of this …

Spending time in the garden (of England)

Thursday, November 10, 2011

Following on from Square Events busiest ever month for Masonic Ladies Festivals I thought it was time for a mini-break to relax and recharge the batteries. Always on the lookout for suitable hotels for Lodge Ladies Weekends I had decided to visit the QHotels properties Bridgewood Manor and Ashford International.

 

Due to crazy parking prices in Brighton Lodges looking for suitable Masonic Ladies Weekend venues have started to look elsewhere in the South East and with Kent being the ‘Garden of England’, with great shopping and plenty of history …

Monday, October 10, 2011

The Square Events Management team had the pleasure of staying at The Langstone Hotel on Hayling Island a few weeks ago, where we were given a really warm welcome and the opportunity to view how well the hotel could accommodate the perfect Masonic Ladies’ Festival.

 

Upon arrival we were shown to the hotel’s spacious bar, the perfect place to meet for a pre-dinner drink. We were immediately able to envisage how Masonic guests on a Ladies’ Festival Weekend would be able to come here to relax and mingle with …

Do Lodges prefer a full service of just find the venue?

Monday, June 20, 2011

Over the last few years Square Events Management have seen a change in the way lodges are organising their annual Ladies Night or Weekend Festival. With fewer Festival Secretaries organising the event, it is increasingly the Worshipful Master’s responsibility to select the destination, locate the Masonic Ladies Festival Hotel or Masonic Ladies Festival Venue (and negotiate a good rate and workable terms and conditions), organise entertainment and get enough people together to make the event viable.

Square Events Management help organisers to either put the whole event together or just …

Having analysed the attendees to all Masonic Ladies Night Hotels and venues over the 2010 / 2011 season, Square Events have found some amazing statistics:-

Most organisers have never organised a similar event

Most Masonic …
