News 28/08/2023 – Ideas for events

With the 2026 MBF Festival fast approaching, below is a list of events that your centre could run to raise funds. It is appreciated that not all lodges have the numbers required to put on, large scale events, so the suggestion is that lodges that meet in the same centre get together to run the events. By taking it in turns to host these events the monies raised can be allocated back to the Host Lodge for festival honorifics.  Potentially your centre could put on six events over the next three years.

It may be you are already planning events and need no help or assistance, but for those at a loss as to what to do, here are some suggestions.

Small get togethers:

Garden Party / BBQCheese and wine or skittles. (We have skittle alley available for you to use at your centre)

Medium events. 

Sunday LunchFilm night (sing along or themed). (We have a full AV system to show films)

Larger Events. 

Race night,  we have a full AV system to show the races, and everything else you will need to run the evening.

Murder Mystery Dinner.  These can be as elaborate as you wish from a full cast of actors to just a compere hosting the evening, with a few chosen guests as the unwitting cast. CLICK HERE FOR A LIST OF THEMES

Depending on the choice of evening, this will dictate the cost, dress code and possible dinner choice. From a simple buffet with casual or fancy dress, to a  Black-tie evening.

All you have to do is choose the date you wish to run an event, rally the support and we will organise the entertainment you have selected.  On the day /evening you supply the audience and we will run the event for you, with your assistance.

With running any event, no matter the size, the most important aspect is advertising your proposed event early enough to your chosen audience, whether that be just Lodge members or to family and friends.  We can help with this supplying A3 posters to your design and by advertising on the Provincial Facebook page and the 2026 MBF festival web site. 

In addition, W.Bros Richard Cox and Ian MacGrain will gladly provide advice to any individual or group who wishes to lay on an event with proceeds going to towards the MBF 2026 festival. They will be enabled to make sure that events are co-ordinated and compliment others in various locations throughout the Province
