Events like the following make me wish I live nearer to London as I would love to attend this!  For those of you lucky to be in the vicinity, check this trip out!

Freemasons and Ancient Egypt at Kensal Green Cemetery
13th April
11am

"Explore the influence of ancient Egypt on the Victorian funerary monuments of London, including those of Freemasons, in the Capital's first garden cemetery, the Cemetery of All Souls at Kensal Green (1833). Led by Cathie Bryan, learn to recognise the Egyptian Revival style, what ancient Egyptian designs and motifs could symbolise to Victorians, and the special significance of Egypt to Freemasonry. We will also see a selection of non Egyptian style tombs of famous Freemasons. The tour concludes with refreshments in the Dissenters' Chapel. Please register your place on Eventbrite and payment will be collected on the morning at the cemetery.
 Price:£7 (£5 concessions) Booking through http://kensalgreenwalk.eventbrite.co.uk
