Welcome to my Web Pages
I decided to build this web site to bring my short talks and lectures to a wider audience and give Masonic Lodges, the chance to have something different during their meetings, especially when there is no candidate available. My talks are also available to other bodies and clubs, please check out the "Non-Masonic Talks" page.
Rather than practice or demonstrate the ritual, why not have a talk/lecture? All are written with historical context around various subjects, and are designed to inform and entertain the brethren during the lodge meeting.
There are over thirty lectures/talks available at present, some with a PowerPoint presentation, and some non-Masonic but of general interest, with more planned. Please use the link Talks/Lectures to see what is available at the present time.All can be given at short notice. Please use the contact link to email your requests or to find out more.
Although I do not charge for my time or expenses, all I ask is that the lodge make a collection at the festive board which I will pass to Masonic Charity. All monies collected will be forwarded on to the Grand Charity via the office of the Provincial Grand Lodge of Durham and the Relief Chest Scheme.
The proposal is that I visit lodges, mainly in the UK and Ireland, to deliver the talks to the brethren myself. This offer only applies to regular lodges which are recognised by the United Grand Lodge of England.
My main Craft Lodge is Nautilus No.4259 meeting at Queen Street Masonic Hall, Sunderland, U.K., where I was Master in 1997 & 2001. Our meeting place is the oldest purpose built Masonic Hall in the world still in use (built in 1785), so why not come along and visit us on the third Friday each month, except July and August, and you will be made especially welcome. A link to Nautilus Lodge web site can also be found on the Links page.
We have an annual meeting to celebrate our seafaring and maritime heritage with a "Nautical Night" when the ceremony is done in a completely different way to any seen before. It's our "fun night" so come along and enjoy yourselves. (By ticket only)
Please take the time to sign my guest-book or become a member/friend of the web site and leave a comment.
I must point out at the outset that unfortunately my talks are not published within these pages for copyright reasons.
