Spencer Compton the 7th Marquess of Northampton and Past Pro Grand Master of the United Grand Lodge of England will be the official representative of the Craft at the Tercentenary celebration in the Old Market Square, Nottingham on 17th June 2017.
Lord Northampton was first initiated into Ceres Lodge No 6977, Northampton, in 1976. His enthusiasm for freemasonry has never diminished and as anyone who has heard him speak will know, he is eloquent and inspiring on Freemasonry and is a strong advocate of its importance to our often troubled modern society.
As Pro Grand Master, Lord Northampton, was at the forefront of streamlining and integrating UGLE central management, developing strategies for the future and driving change in freemasonry. He worked tirelessly to ensure the vision of the centre was understood through greater involvement of the Provinces and he believes strongly in the sovereignty of each lodge and encourages them to introduce changes that will enhance the enjoyment their members get out of freemasonry.
Philip Marshall, the Provincial Grand Master, commented: "We are honoured as a Province to have such a high ranking representative attend our event and I am sure our members and the people of Nottinghamshire will make him most welcome."
