In South Wales we have over 160 lodges, most of which have 20–60 members. A wide range of interests are represented – from the entertainment industry to public services, and military services to commerce.
As a new member, we’ll help you find the best lodge for you. This might not necessarily be the one closest to you, but one that is the best ‘match’ for your interests (and perhaps one with members you already know). You’d normally join one lodge at the outset, but it’s always possible to join more lodges further down the line if you like.
Membership is open to all men aged 18 and upwards, but if you are a student aged 18 or over then you can join through the ‘Universities Scheme’.
Can women be members?
The two leading women’s Grand Lodges, that we have the closest relationship, with are: Freemasonry for Women and the Order of Women Freemasons. These two groups only admit women because that is the choice of their memberships. Both of the women’s organisations, and ourselves, prefer to practice our Freemasonry in single sex environments. The United Grand Lodge of England regularly hires its facilities out for meetings of the two women’s Lodges due to our mutual respect and close relations.
Finding the best lodge for you
The first step to identifying the best lodge for you is to ask a few questions. We’ll then be back in touch with more information for you.
