Mark and RAM Events

The continued success of our programme, both masonic and social, rests entirely upon the support of every Mark Mason in the Province. The variety of highly successful events we organise on your behalf ensures something for everyone to enjoy. On each occasion you will be among friends, both new and old, and assured of a hearty and warm welcome. Why not make up a Lodge party to feel well and truly at home?

Most of the social events provide an opportunity to invite our Craft Brethren, and non Masons* along to see how much we do enjoy ourselves in the Warwickshire Mark. This, assisted by distribution of the Provincial Newsletters and our websites makes it very easy to introduce Candidates to our Lodges, thus ensuring ongoing success and support
