250 YEARS’ HERITAGE

Integrity • Friendship • Respect • Charity
Adapting for today's world
NEW MEMBER’S CLUBS
Around the Province we have clubs for our new members called 'Light Blues Clubs'. These enable our members to meet socially outside of their lodges.
SPECIALIST & MILITARY LODGES
We have a growing number of special lodges in which the members have a shared interest outside of Freemasonry. We have created lodges that offer a military interest or appeal to the sporting enthusiast.
Appealing to both student and staff members alike, we have three lodges with links to Universities in the Province: Southampton, Winchester and Portsmouth.
BUILDING GREAT FRIENDSHIPS • MAKING A DIFFERENCE
"In recent years the number of younger members has increased considerably and now thanks to social media they are communicating and spreading their enthusiasm throughout the Province."
The governing body for Freemasonry in England and Wales.
We are a unique members’ organisation which has thrived for over 300 years. Having no political or religious affiliations, we comprise members of all ages, races, religions, cultures and backgrounds. We meet in our individual Lodges throughout the country where we have ceremonial traditions which encourage us both to be more tolerant and respectful and actively to fulfil our civic and charitable responsibilities; we also make time to eat, drink and meet together, and form lifelong friendships.
Interested in joining us?
Traditionally, those interested in joining Freemasonry are introduced by friends and family members. Today we receive many applications via our website and social media accounts.
We have a dedicated team who deal with membership enquiries and they can help you from you initial enquiry, to joining the lodge of your choice and into Freemasonry beyond.
