Croydon’s Crescamus Lodge held it’s annual Ladies Night on Saturday 17 November, returning to the Croydon Aerodrome hotel for the first time since 2014.
Traditionally Freemasons Lodges hold annual Ladies’ Nights to thank their partners for allowing them the time to practice their Freemasonry and to show appreciation for the women in their lives.
However, the Freemason’s Ladies Night is not restricted to wives. It is also open to mothers, daughters, sisters and significant others. Women in the lives of Freemasons often look forward to this event as it is their chance to catch a glimpse of the world of Freemasons.
Ladies Nights are always a glitzy affair; as both the Ladies and Gents get to dress up in their finery. The fancier, the better, and Crescamus Lodges’s Ladies Night is no different.
After a great meal, speeches were made toasting the Ladies, and this year’s Ladies’ Night President, W. Bro. Chris, the current Master of Crescamus Lodge.
A great time was had by all with a magnificent amount of money being raised for Pancreatic Cancer Action, a charity very close to the hearts of both W. Bro. Chris and his wife Cherie.
Members of Crescamus, their partners and friends travelled from Croydon to spend the first weekend of February in Eastbourne for Crescamus Lodge’s annual Ladies Festival.
A wonderful weekend was had by all at the Langham Hotel. On Friday night following a sumptuous dinner, the hotel was transformed into Las Vegas. Guest played blackjack and roulette in a pop-up casino. The evening was a great source of fun for all and made sure that no-one lost any money and the event was for fun. Although it did not stop a sense of competition as the Lodge’s Master elect walked away with a bottle of bubbly for being the biggest winner on the night.
The following day we enjoyed a lazy day around town; some shopping, some seeking out the sights and others just relaxing from the exertions of the previous night. All that was left was to prepare for the highlight of the weekend, the five-course gala dinner.
On Saturday 15 November, the Master of Crescamus Lodge along with his wife hosted this year’s Crescamus Lodge Ladies Night. Held at the iconic and historic Croydon Aerodrome Hotel everyone had a fantastic time.
A wonderful evening was had by all. Having enjoyed a wonderful meal, the guest danced the night away to the sounds of Mirage.
