The Freemasons Tercentenary Celebration Travelling Exhibition

Wednesday 9 - Sunday 20 August

The origins of Freemasonry go back over 2000 years, the Masonic ceremonies have remained unchanged so naturally the history is very interesting. As Freemasonry grew it needed to become properly organised, thus in 1717 the first Grand Lodge was formed from four independent Lodges. They met in the Goose and Gridiron tavern in St. Paul’s Churchyard, London. Freemasonry continued to grow and in 1723 a rule book was written called The Book of Constitutions, it still exists virtually unchanged and is widely used today. In 1813, various factions came together and the United Grand Lodge of England came into being.

The exhibition will provide an insight to the 300-year-old history and that of Surrey freemasonry which is 180 years old and an opportunity to learn more of what Freemasonry does locally.
