Our Lodge Secretary, WBro Andy Green, attended the Freemasons Association of Medical, University and Legal Lodges (AMULL) Festival on 27th September 2014 representing The Wyggeston Lodge which is an Associate Member Lodge. This year it was held at The Charterhouse, London and was hosted by Aesculapius Lodge No.2410 which is also a UGLE Universities’ Scheme Lodge.
The festival began with a brief history of The Charterhouse which was originally founded as a Carthusian Monastery in 1371 and today serves as almshouses supporting gentlemen pensioners.
An Ecumenical Service was then held in the 15th Century Chapel by Rev. Robin Isherwood along with wonderful renditions of The Benedictus and The Anthem ‘Jubilate Duo’ and an organ recessional of Fantasia in C minor by JS Bach.
The attendees were then treated to an amusing and enlightening lecture from David Battie of the BBC Antiques Roadshow regarding his ‘collectaholic’ lifestyle.
The festival concluded with a champagne reception on the lawns of Chaterhouse in the late September sunshine followed by a sumptuous festival luncheon in the Great Hall and Old Library.
