Freemasonry In Manchester
With over 40 Freemasons Lodges meeting at Freemasons Hall in Manchester it can be safely said that Freemasonry in Manchester is thriving.
The misconceptions about Freemasonry have been the same for many years; that you have to be wealthy, a professional and invited by a Freemason. All these are just not true and all Freemasons Lodges enjoy a wide breadth of members, from all walks of life and job types. The golden threads that runs through all Freemasons Lodges in Manchester are friendship and charity.
Being a Freemason in Manchester is a very exciting thing to be. We meet at the awe inspiring Freemasons Hall on Bridge Street, Manchester that sits on the edge of the cosmopolitan and lively Spinningfields and is merely a stone’s throw from busy Deansgate. You walk out of a Lodge meeting from Freemasons Hall straight into the busy night life of city centre Manchester, with all it has to offer from lively restaurants to crowded bars to jumping nightclubs. At King Edward The 7th Lodge, we meet every second Friday in the month (February, March, April, September, October and November) and post Lodge drinks are generally on the cards.
As Freemasons we are very proud of our charitable works and since 1980 the Grand Charity has made over £100 million in donations to charitable and worthy causes. Whereas we know how to enjoy ourselves, we also know how to repay society for the benefits we have had and help those that are less fortunate than ourselves.
In searching for information on Freemasonry in Manchester, Google will have given you a ton of results that are fictitious, conspiratorial and plainly not true.
