New & Young Masons Conference 2017 -Birmingham
About the Conference
The New and Young Masons Conference is possibly the largest annual event for New and Young Masons clubs in the United Kingdom, for committee members, representatives and leaders of the Craft. Attracting Freemasons from across the United Kingdom and representing well over 40 provinces, NYMCC 2017 will provide a warm and friendly environment for sharing ideas, networking and finding inspiration.
We are building on the success of NYMCC 2016 that was hosted by the Adair Club and welcomed over 60 delegates for a day of stimulating debate and discussions in the city of Bath. The Five of Nine Club welcomes brethren to join us at Severn Street Masonic Hall in Birmingham on Saturday October 14th to imagine, solve, and share with likeminded individuals.
The conference theme is: Building and Maintaining the Foundations.
The Holywell Club Medieval Night
What a wonderful event! The venue was beautiful, the company was excellent, the entertainments were breathtaking and the food and drink went down with us wanting more but full to bursting.
The Pentacle Drummers of Eastbourne opened the occasion by setting the mood with fun and rhythm and continued to keep us entertained throughout the evening. The Banquet was astonishing and was expertly assembled by our venue, Blackstock Farm. In return it was expertly and mercilessly devoured by The Holywell Club.
Our DJ David Funnell, supplied some wonderful Medieval music to eat and drink to before providing a classic disco to dance the night away to.
From enjoying The Sword in The Stone built by one of our members to the raffle and throughout the evening, we all had a wonderful time. The Holywell Club Founders would like to thank everyone who attended and look forward to next years theme party.
