Weston Park, the stately home on the Shropshire / Staffordshire border will be home to a weekend of family fun celebrating 300 years of Freemasonry this June. The event invites all to come along for an entire weekend of exciting activities and entertainment for everybody to enjoy.
The highlight of the weekend will be the much anticipated re-enactment of the Battle of the Alamo, with eight hundred Mexicans in full uniform attacking a mock fort defended by one hundred Texans. The demonstration will use real gunpowder, cannons and explosives - making the event really go out with a bang.
Other events to enjoy throughout the weekend will be firework displays, hot air balloon ‘Night Glow’, animal displays and a Kids Fun Run, as well as free Fun Fair and Railway rides for all visitors.
Live music will also be present over the weekend, brass and string bands performing, the “Abba Reunion” tribute band making an appearance, and a performance from the Kaleidoscope Theatre Group.
The event is being organised by the Provinces of Warwickshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire and Worcestershire.
MFest 300 Chairman, John Treanor, says "The weekend celebrates 300 years of Freemasonry and has been three years in the planning! The celebrations are open for everyone to enjoy, not just those associated with the Freemason Society. As one of the largest fundraising bodies in the UK we will be donating any profits generated to Midland Air Ambulance.
We have visitors travelling from all over the world, especially from Texas, who are particularly looking forward to the Battle of the Alamo re-enactment! We are looking forward to an action packed weekend."
The event will take place on Saturday 24th June – Sunday 25th June at Weston Park.
