With less than 500 days to go until the amazing finale evening of the the 152nd Annual Festival for the Mark Benevolent Fund, the team who are meticulously putting the event together held a very successful planning meeting at the unique Kent Event Centre in Detling, where our 2020 Festival Result & Gala Dinner will take place on Saturday 13th June 2020.

The event will be held in the Maidstone Exhibition Hall, with both the John Hendry Pavilion and the Astor Pavilion playing support roles.

During the detailed planning meeting, the Festival Chairman, David Green was joined by other key members of the organising committee, namely;

Roger Odd, Event Co-ordinator
David King, Venue Support & Logistics Manager
Chris Metherell, Guest Relations Manager
Alun John, Banquet Liaison
Peter Lapage, Festival Treasurer
Ellie Nicholl, Deputy Kent Event Centre Manager
Mark Pierson, Kent Event Centre Catering Manager

and of course Provincial Grand Master RW. Bro. Archie Torrance, to ensure that this landmark event will be sure to be a resounding success.
This event will not happen again in Kent for another 35 years or so – please don’t miss out on our Garden of England Gala Dinner and start returning your booking forms as soon as possible.
