The Journey of A lifttime

Becoming a Freemason is like going on a journey: from joining as an Entered Apprentice, it typically takes one year to become a Master Mason, with each of the three stages marked by a special ceremony.

Am I eligible?

Any man over the age of 21 may join regardless of ethnic group, political views, economic standing or religion although he is expected to have a faith. Students over 18 can join our University Lodge.

How do I join?

If you don’t know anyone who is a member and that you can talk to, then your first step is to approach your local lodge or one which shares your interests – there are 15 lodges to choose from – or check out our Contact Us page and let us put you in touch with your local lodge.
