2011 has seen a dramatic increase in enquires from Lodges requiring assistance in organising their Ladies Night or Ladies Festival Weekend.
With an increase of over 50% year on year Square Events feel the message has really got through that lower rates can be achieved through Square Events with no additional charges to the guests, organiser or the lodge.
The work we are doing with the hotels to identify key dates to offer best value for money are assisting both lodges and guests. Negotiating streamlined Terms and Conditions …

Every year is the same. Over the Christmas period people have time on their hands to deal with some of the matters that the normal working week doesn’t allow time for. Organising the Lodge Ladies Festival is one such thing. With people working longer hours finding the times to discuss the finer point of a suitable hotel for your Masonic Ladies weekend in Bournemouth, Bath, Brighton or Stratford-upon-Avon isn’t always the first priority.
This has always been one of the main benefits of using an agency such as Square Events …

When it comes to comparing conferences and Masonic ladies festival weekends there are many similarities, and many differences.
With a Masonic ladies festival weekend the decision of where the weekend is going to take place would normally be on the standard of the hotel, whether the hotel is in right location and if the towns or cities are in close a proximity to their venue. There are many popular locations for ladies weekends such as Cambridge, Oxford, Stratford-Upon-Avon, Bournemouth and Cheltenham. With the right product knowledge, at Square Events tailor …

Visiting hotels for a showround is usually, at best, a one night affair barely giving you enough time to see any of the local environs and leaves the feeling of having driven an awful lot. So it was with great delight I accepted the kind offer of a weekend at the Barcelo Old Ship Hotel in Brighton.
I arrived at the hotel early evening and managed to get a space in the hotel’s privately owned car park (there are very few seafront hotels in Brighton that can boast this!). My …

Being the latest addition to the team is never going to be easy, especially when you are new to an industry and in your first full time employment. Day to day I have been gaining a lot of knowledge and this has been aided greatly from the information imparted by visiting account managers.
It’s great working here at Brief2Event and Square Events, I am now in my 6th week and have already had the chance to meet four different account managers from hotels ranging from 5 star luxury at …

It’s been a busy week here at Square Events. October has always been one of the busier months when it comes to Masonic Ladies Weekends and this month has been no different. This weekend past I visited Lodges weekending at Masonic Ladies Festival Hotels in Brighton, Oxford, Ascot as well as Lodges in Bournemouth. Which made for a lot of driving especially after the weekend before when I was in Chester, Chepstow and Cheltenham.
Saturday is always a day of worry for me as I am always terrified that the …

Well I certainly clocked up some miles over last weekend but I had a thoroughly great time, some extremely happy Lodges and I also won some money.
Friday morning I journeyed Bournemouth to Chester to visit the Ramada Hotel there to meet with the Lodge we had in the hotel to run through the final points regarding their Ladies Festival. The President and his Lady were delightful and we spent a lovely hour familiarising them with the hotel facilities and running through the details of their Ladies Weekend.
From there …

Here at Square Events we like to think we move with the times. It makes for an interesting dichotomy when trying to maintain a traditional, hands-on and personal approach whilst evolving to keep with the times.
Masonic Festivals are a tried and tested formula, the reason they are popular is that the ever suffering WAG’s of the average Freemason are shown the respect and appreciation their unerring devotion deserves. Also they provide a great opportunity to recruit new members and raise a bit of money for the Lodge charity list.…
