KIDSGROVE MASONIC HALL
The Masonic Hall, Kidsgrove was completed and first occupied in 1923 for the main purpose of Freemasonry. Of course Masonic traditions are still practiced here today, but it also boasts a social club which welcomes membership from non-Masons. Members can enjoy relaxing in the comfortable lounge bar which serves “real ale” along with other beers, lager, wines and spirits.
There is also a snooker room with a full size table.
The function room is a multi-purpose hall which is used as a dining room, ballroom and disco for social occasions and hosts the “Quiz Night” every Thursday.
Burns Night supper– January – when the Haggis is piped in, addressed then carved and served with whisky sauce, just for starters. A formal meal then follows and after that, entertainment kicks in until “late”. Organised by the Institute for members and guests.
Clough Hall and St. Thomas’s Lodge Ladies Nights – March/April/May – Organised by the Lodges for Freemasons, their good ladies and guests. A formal evening when gentlemen wear dinner suits and gifts are presented to the ladies. A five or even six course dinner precedes the entertainment, again until “late”.
Many other parties or events are held, as and when the need, or feel occurs. In 2007, a Halloween party and “Hollywood” evening were held.
Of course, a New Years Eve party finishes off the calendar year in style and starts the new one even better.
