In April of each year a Festival is organised by the GMLoI and hosted by one of the Provinces in the country, with the respective Provincial Grand Master as President. The President will normally attend the Festivals preceding and following his own Presidential year and so enhance each Festival event.

Mark Master Masons and Royal Ark Mariners of all Provinces are cordially invited to participate in the Festival in addition to taking the opportunity to rehearse work which they are expecting to do in their own Lodges.

This 2017/18 season, the Festival will be held on 25th April 2018 in the Province of Sussex under the Presidency of RW Bro Martin Wilson, the Provincial Grand Master for Sussex at the Brighton Masonic Centre. There will be a Demonstration of the Mark Master Mason’s Advancement Ceremony and Lecture, followed by the Royal Ark Mariner Elevation Ceremony and Tracing Board. All Mark Master Masons and Royal Ark Mariners are invited to attend the Demonstrations and to dine afterwards. Application forms will be issued in due course and will be published on this website.
