The Mark Benevolent Fund Festival this year was held in the Province of North Wales under the presidency of their Provincial Grand Master, R W Thomas Gareth Williams.

Kent Brethren and their ladies travelled to Llandudno to help celebrate the Festival which raised a a splendid total of £630,738!

The Festival is hosted by a different Province each year and it is customary for some of the Kent brethren to attend, usually staying for the weekend or longer at a nearby hotel. Anyone wishing to accompany the group should in the first instance contact our Provincial Grand Charity Steward, W Bro Tony Waspe at

Because there are a large number of Provinces, it takes many years for each province to have its turn. Kent last held the Festival in 1985 and hosts it again in 2020.
