Celebrating 300 years
It’s 300 years since four London Lodges met to establish the world’s first Grand Lodge for Freemasons. Today there are over 6.5 million freemasons worldwide.
2017 was a special year for UGLE as it traced its roots to this historic meeting. Celebrations ranged from giving a film crew unique access to the people and traditions behind Freemasonry, to a year-long programme packed with events. Car rallies, church services, fund-raisers and family fun days – there was something for everyone.
The high point came in October 2017 with a celebration of Freemasonry at the Royal Albert Hall, followed by a dinner in Battersea Park. Over 4,000 Freemasons from Provinces, Districts and 136 Grand Lodges around the world were present.
