Lodge Profile

The Lodge was sponsored by Old Globe Lodge and consecrated at the Prince of Wales Hotel, The Esplanade, on the 26th of April 1952, it is the youngest Lodge in the town. The Lodge is often called the “hoteliers lodge” due to the tradition that many of the original brethren were involved in the tourist industry, a fact that also applies today with several of the brethren associated with the hospitality industry although this is certainly not a pre-requisite for membership.


The Lodge meets at the Masonic Hall owned by the Scarborough Masonic Club at 14 St. Nicholas Cliff, Scarborough YO11 2ES at 7pm on the fourth Monday each month apart from May and December when it meets on the third Monday, the Lodge takes a summer recess from June to August each year. Our formal meetings begin at 7pm and conclude around 8:30pm followed by a meal in the refectory at “the festive board” which currently costs  £15 for a two course dinner to around 10pm after which many brethren retire to the bar to round off a convivial evening.


There is also a “Lodge of Instruction (LOI)” informal meeting held at the Hall on the second Monday each month throughout the year where brethren have the opportunity to learn and practice techniques and ceremonies. At the Lodge meetings dress is “black tie, dinner suit” and white gloves, for the LOI dress is informal.


Our Masonic year starts with the installation of the Master in November and subscriptions are due for the coming year. Membership subscriptions are currently £220 which can be paid monthly by direct debit after the first year, there is an initial one-off joining fee of £100 paid before your initiation.


Scarbrough Lodge has a vibrant membership that, whilst all embracing, has an age profile younger than most other local Lodges, the brethren are extremely sociable and enter this side of masonry with vigour. Throughout the year the Brethren meet for various social reasons including “curry nights” at local restaurants; hog roasts at the farm of a fellow mason; there is also usually a formal “Ladies Night” to thank our long suffering partners. We also support the social activities of the sister Lodges in Scarborough and the nearby towns.


A particular popular aspect of being a mason is the ability to “visit” Lodges in the surrounding area, and attend their ceremonies, this gives the opportunity to observe how other Lodges conduct themselves and to broaden our Masonic friendships.


Should you wish to join Scarbrough Lodge you may  contact myself directly or the Secretary by email secretary@scarbroughlodge7147.co.uk or via our website http://www.scarbroughlodge7147.co.uk or by post to the Masonic Club. Initially you will be invited to an informal meeting where you will have the opportunity to enquire about Scarbrough Lodge in detail and Masonry in general.
