2020 Reflections - Launch
17 Feb 2019
1st February 2020 is the 150th anniversary date upon which Freemasons’ Hall Arthur Square was ‘ready for occupation’ in 1870.
The Trustees are mindful to commemorate significant events within the history of the Hall without financially burdening members. To mark the anniversary lease of 1st November 1867 for a new Hall a special £150 room reservation fee rate in 2017 was applied. Subsequently, to mark 150 years since Sir Charles Lanyon laid the foundation stone on 24 June 1868 the Trustees acquired the renowned Belfast artist, John Luke preparatory painting of ‘Solomon Building the Temple.’ This coincided with affixing Masonic Education Boards and Artefacts throughout the Hall on 25 June 2018.
The storyline of a Hall at Arthur Square begins with Sir Charles Lanyon, a Freemason who also contributed much too general society, as did many other Freemasons. With immediate commencement and for the months leading to and beyond February 2020 the Trustees wish to advise Brethren of the ‘2020 Reflections’ series of talks, lectures and events.
All enquiries, suggestions and offers by Lodges and members will be coordinated by the Service Provider to the Hall.
Your Lodge equally has something to reflect upon. Whether it be merely reading a minute that records a member who gallantly fell or served in war or a member who obtained an honour such as an OBE etc or a member who has been recognised by society for his work, charitable action, or sporting attainment. Every Lodge has something to reflect upon. Attend a talk, support an event, and be grateful to the wisdom of our Masonic forefathers that placed Freemasons’ Hall Arthur Square as a benefit for all who enter.
