Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest and largest non-religious, non-political, fraternal and charitable organisations. It teaches self-knowledge through participation in a progression of ceremonies. Members are expected to be of mature age (18 years), high moral standing and are encouraged to speak openly about Freemasonry.


Freemasonry is a society of men concerned with moral and spiritual values. Its members are taught its principles (moral lessons and self-knowledge) by a series of ritual dramas – a progression of allegorical two-part plays which are learnt by heart and performed within each Lodge – which follow ancient forms and use stonemasons’ customs and tools as allegorical guides. Freemasonry instils in its members a moral and ethical approach to life: its values are based on integrity, kindness, honesty and fairness.


Members are urged to regard the interests of the family as paramount but, importantly, Freemasonry also teaches and practices concern for people, care for the less fortunate and help for those in need.


Freemasonry as it is practised under the United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE), which administers Lodges of Freemasons in England and Wales and is within the jurisdiction of The Provincial Grand Lodge of Hampshire & Isle of Wight. Further information on Freemasonry can be found on the United Grand Lodge of England and The Provincial Grand Lodge of Hampshire & Isle of Wight web sites.
