Rescheduled from last year, this event was a none-trading Crusader costumed re-enactment in support of the Freemasons Of West Lancashire (Chorley & District Group), who were celebrating 300 years of Freemasonry by throwing the doors of Westhoughton Masonic Hall open to visitors.
We were given privileged access into the inner workings of the Freemasons, to ask questions, view the museum and to enter the two lodge rooms. There was also a spectacular Wedding Fair and venue promotion. It provided a fantastic opportunity for us all to parade in our best kit without having to set up any stalls or equipment and without the need to trade.
15 of the VMM team turned out including The Lord Of Macclesfield’s Retinue, The Knights Of Failsworth, The Knights Of St Claire and family visitors from as far afield as Southern France and Corsica.
The highlight of the day, by far, must be when the ladies of the group decided to overrun the bouncy castle at the end of the day and the knights and Vikings stood guard!
