Making a meal of it!
Saturday 21st May 2011 saw Square Events Management deliver the Meyrick Lodge Ladies Night event. The event was a huge success with number up 15% and The British Heart Foundation benefiting from £1,000. The price included a three course menu, printed table items (menu, place cards and table plans), Masonic Ladies Night photographer, pianist during dinner, Masonic Ladies presents, an excellent band (Chris Manning Project) and a disco.
Square Events Management (www.squareeventsmanagement.com) assisted the Master of the lodge to source a suitable venue. Feedback on last year’s Masonic Ladies Night hotel and an increase in ticket sales indicated that we needed a larger room. After offering the Master a choice of four suitable venues and visiting two of them, The Carrington House Hotel in Bournemouth was selected.
Communication with the Lodge membership ahead of the evening was managed by Square Events Management who sent out invitations and a Masonic Ladies Festival booking form. The President was kept informed of ticket sales from start to finish and regular pushes by him in lodge and lots of friends and family supporting the night ensured a superb attendance.

I have no hesitation in recommending Square Events Management to any Master planning his event.’ – 2010 / 2011 Master of Meyrick Lodge.
‘My wife and I had so much fun at the recent Masonic Ladies Festival hotel – The Carrington House Hotel in Bournemouth. The event really opened my eyes to the good that Freemason’s do. I can’t believe the generosity of the guests in raising over £1,000 for The British Heart Foundation’ – Non Masonic guest at the Meyrick Lodge Ladies Festival dinner.
‘Great job Square Events! Call me next week to get the ball rolling on finding a Masonic Ladies Festival hotel for my event next year!’ – Senior Warden.
‘I have recommended Square Events Management to a friend of mine who is Master of a Masonic Lodge in London.
