Welcome to the website of the Durham 2029 MBF Festival, held under the auspices of the Provincial Grand Lodge of Mark Master Masons of Durham. I am honoured to launch our Festival and hope that you will be a part of it.
Our Festival is in support of the Mark Benevolent Fund. For over 150 years, the MBF has been helping those in need and it itself has been ably supported by Mark Master Masons across the country. It's now our turn...the Province of Durham...to lead the charge in raising funds for the MBF, but let us not forget that it isn't just about handing over a sum of money; it is the about the joy that will be brought to the downtrodden and the relief that will be given to the needy. Hence, our Festival slogan: "Giving is not just about making a donation, it's about making a difference."
The Durham 2029 MBF Festival is for everyone and will only be a success with your help and enthusiasm. We hope that you as Mark Masons, your friends and families can participate, enjoy and organise the many events that will occur over the next six years.
Let's make that difference.
Provincial Grand Master
