What is Freemasonry?
Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest and largest non-religious, non-political, fraternal and charitable organisations. The history of Freemasonry is rooted in the traditions and ceremonies of the stonemasons in charge of the building the castles and cathedrals of the Middle Ages.
Who can be a Freemason?
All men aged 21 and above (or 18 if son of a Freemason) are welcome to join regardless of ethnic group, political views or economic standing or religion, although initiates are expected to have a faith in a supreme being. Students over 18 may join their University Lodge.

Freemasonry is about making good men better by practising the following five core principles:
Integrity: we say what we mean and keep our promises.
Kindness: we put our families first but believe in playing a key role in our communities by giving time and money to charitable causes
Honesty: we pride ourselves on openness, about what being a Freemason means for us
Fairness: we treat everyone as equal by listening to others and exploring any differences in search of common ground
Tolerance: we respect the opinions of others and behave with understanding towards them
