Pre-Peppercorn Ceremony Sunset Reception

The 200th Annual Peppercorn Ceremony will be held on the morning of Wednesday, April 20 on King’s Square, St. George’s and expects to see masons visiting from overseas to take part in this years ceremony.

The Peppercorn Ceremony takes place every year on King’s Square in the Towne of St George, Bermuda and surrounds the ceremonial payment of the “rent” of one peppercorn for the use of the Old State House, Bermuda’s oldest building, by the Master, Officers and Brethren of Lodge St George #200, on the Roll of the Grand Lodge of Scotland.

The Peppercorn Ceremony in recent years has taken place on the Wednesday closest to St Georges Day [April 23rd]. It has been timed to coincide with the annual State Visit of His Excellency the Governor of Bermuda to the Town of St George.
