Freemasonry is open to all men of good character, over the age of 21, regardless of religion, race, creed or social standing. We come together, in a non-religious or political meeting, averagely once a month. Meetings are held in the Masonic Hall, at a Lodge. Lodges are memberships of Freemasons, consiting of approximately between 15 and 50 Brethren.


At Accrington Masonic Hall, there are four Lodges, all meeting on different evenings in the month.  We often visit each others Lodges to show support and extend our Masonic Friendships outside of our own immediate Lodge Family.
























At our meetings, we practice what we call ritual, which in laymans terms, is a sort of play/parable, promoting the knowledge and well being of yourself, the stability and presevation of society and helping those less fortunate than ourselves. Each meeting is normally followed by an evening meal called a Festive Board.  We have many social occassions, charitable fundraising events and family involvement is actively encouraged.


Full membership information across our Province is available from the Provincincial Website which van be accessed at
