May, 27 - Centenary of the Manchester Association for Masonic Research


The Manchester Association for Masonic Research celebrates its centenary on Wednesday 27 May 2009 with an ambitious lecture program and other events open to the public. 

Guided visits to the superb Chetham and Rylands Libraries in Manchester will be available in the morning. After an informal lunchtime, celebration of the Centenary will commence at 2pm. This will include talks by several rare world-class speakers. In the evening there will be a chance to hear the 2009 Prestonian Lecturer, WBro John Wade (himself a vice-president of MAMR) on the topic of ‘Masonic Processions’. Ladies will be welcome throughout the day and may find the occasion of more than usual interest!

MAMR is the North of England's foremost Research body, annually publishing a volume of illustrated Transactions containing contributions by leaders in the field. Speakers are often of International status. When coupled with the Centre for Research into Freemasonry and Fraternalism (CRFF) at Sheffield and the Masonic libraries available at Manchester (John Rylands and Central) and Sheffield (Tapton Hall and Douglas Knoop Centre), the combination results in truly excellent facilities from which to pursue learning about Freemasonry.
