Annual Investiture 2023


Annual Investiture 

The United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE) is looking forward to welcoming members to this year’s Annual Investiture on the 26th April (Craft) and 27th April (Royal Arch). This annual event is a wonderful celebration of the Investiture of the Grand Officers at Freemasons’ Hall in London. 

The Annual Investiture is an excellent opportunity for those visiting Freemasons’ Hall from abroad to see all the new and exciting developments since their last visit. 

Opportunities include a visit to the Museum of Freemasonry’s brand new 1723 exhibition 'Inventing the Future' to celebrate the journey of Freemasonry and the 300-year anniversary of the Book of Constitutions.

Four new lines of exclusive products have also been designed and developed for Shop at Freemasons’ Hall, they include: The Picart, The Art Deco, The Façade, and the Museum of Freemasonry.
