On the nomination of the Board of General Purposes, the Trustees of the Prestonian Fund have appointed W.Bro. Dr Mike Kearsley, ProvGOrat (Middlesex) to be the Prestonian Lecturer for 2014. The title of his lecture is "1814 Consolidation and Change:  the first year of the United Grand Lodge of England".

The Board desires to emphasise the importance of these, the only Lectures held under the authority of the Grand Lodge. The Lectureship is a memorial to William Preston (1742-1818) the foremost Masonic educator of his age, who left a legacy to Grand Lodge to provide for an Annual Lectureship.

 

The Lectureship runs for one calendar year. The Lecturer must choose some aspect of Freemasonry which is not controversial but will educate and entertain a general Lodge audience.  The Board may awarded certain Lodges the privilege of hosting an official delivery of the Prestonian Lecture during 2014.

 

 

The Board awarded the following Lodges the privilege of hosting an official delivery of the Prestonian Lecture during 2014:

The London Grand Rank Association, London
Egerton Worsley Lodge No. 1213, Eccles (West Lancashire)
Temple of Athene Lodge No. 9541, Harrow (Middlesex)

 

In addition, Brother Kearsley may deliver further unofficial deliveries of the Lecture to Lodges and Masonic Associations during 2014 and beyond. Lodges that wish to host an unofficial delivery of the Prestonian Lecture for 2014 may contact W.Bro. Kearsley through the Grand Secretary's office or through this website, which will also provide further details of the Lecture.  Alternatively contact him directly on:  mk@wordcom.co.uk

 

 

The next delivery will be at Comet Lodge
