Latest News – 8th May 2021
As you may have guessed, due to Covid we once more had to delay our Consecration, and this time the date will be 7th May 2022. Our apologies for any inconvenience caused.
Date of Consecration Confirmed! 7th May 2022
Our consecration will take place on Saturday 7th May 2022 (a year later than previously announced) at the Oxford Transport Museum in Long Hanborough, just outside Oxford. The ceremony itself will take place amongst the exhibits and there will not only be a car show of members and visitors cars, but the museum will be open for a private viewing for those attending, after the ceremony. We recommend booking in early (at the bottom of this page) as we already have a lot of brethren booked in and space is limited. This is going to be quite unique and a fun filled day. A large section of the museum includes 2 floors of the Sir William Morris exhibition in its own hall – not to be missed!
We are also hoping to organise entertainment for non masonic friends and family during the consecration itself, with vintage bus trips from the museum to Blenheim Palace and the gardens and to nearby historic Woodstock, and afterwards we hope to bring everyone together for further celebrations.
In early April 2020 Grand Lodge formally granted us permission to form the new lodge, allocating us the “chassis” number 10,003 – just over the clock!
The consecration will start at 1pm sharp, but the museum will be open for our exclusive use from 11 am. The festive board is a motoring themed one and will cost £37.50 including entry to the museum.
If you are coming to the consecration but not to the festive board, there will be a small charge of £7.50 as entry to the museum will still be required (included in the cost of the Festive Board).
