The head of Gloucestershire Freemasons, his Deputy and both Assistants were invited to celebrate two hundred years since the building and opening of the Freemasons’ Hall in Cheltenham. The Grade 2 listed Freemasons’ Hall located in the centre of Cheltenham and dating back to 1823 is one of the earliest purpose built Halls in the country and is the oldest still in use for its original purpose. Members and guests were hosted by the current chairman, Nicholas Norman and the board of directors. A detailed history of the hall and its architectural importance was presented by Nigel Greenwood. Following the presentation in the Lodge room, a feast was served to members and guests in the medieval themed dining room before the formal toasts and speeches concluded a very interesting and enjoyable evening.
