Freemasons have held meetings in Leicester since 1739, moving to their current home at number 80 London Road Leicester in 1910.

This beautiful Grade II Georgian building includes stunning Roman Ionic, Art Deco and Modernist  architecture, barrel-vaulted ceilings and works of art hanging in many of the large rooms. Freemason’s Hall also houses a Masonic Museum, which is one of the best in the country, proudly showing both the richness and importance of our own history and heritage.

Also located through the doors is Devonshire Place, a unique Wedding, Conference & Banqueting Venue which boasts two stunning ballrooms and multiple banqueting rooms.

The open day will feature access to this amazing building, with experts on hand to guide you through the history of Freemasonry in Leicestershire and Rutland.

Visitors will also have access to displays from many local charities, as well as many of the special interest and sporting clubs associated with the Freemasons.

With no entrance fee or booking required, this is a fantastic opportunity to learn more about the Freemasons and local architecture.

​Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest social and charitable organisations. Its roots lie in the traditions of the medieval stonemasons who built our cathedrals and castles. For Freemasons, there are four important values that help define their path through life: Integrity, Friendship, Charity and Respect. In today’s world filled with uncertainty, these principles ring as true as they have at any point in the organisation’s history.

Freemasons work closely with the Leicestershire and Rutland Masonic Charity Association, Masonic Charitable Foundation, Royal Masonic Benevolent Institution Care Company, and Teddies for Loving Care. This year the beneficiaries of our charitable giving received £703,912 in total, from money raised by our members and distributed to deserving individuals and good causes.
