Masonic Lodge

    The Old Bradfield Lodge No. 3549 welcomes Old Boys, Masters - past and present, fathers of pupils - both Freemasons or not and those closely connected with the College.

    The Lodge was founded in 1911 and the first Master was George Blackall-Simonds younger brother of Blackall-Simonds, Bradfield’s first boy. The Lodge meets twice a year in London at Freemasons’ Hall and holds a dinner afterwards. It also meets once a year, usually in April at the College, this is followed by a dinner in the Warden’s Room and our principal guest is often the Headmaster or a senior member of staff who keep us up to date with developments at the school.

    The Lodge donates money each year to a Travel Bursary which is awarded at the discretion of the Headmaster to fund Gap Year students doing voluntary work in deprived areas of the world. It also supports other worthy causes chosen by the Lodge members, through the Metropolitan Masonic Charity Appeal or the Freemasons’ Grand Charity.

    There isn't currently an Old Bradfield Ladies’ Masonic Lodge, however with enough applicants, one could be established. In the meantime, those who are interested in joining one of the Women’s Freemasonry fraternities should investigate The Order of Women’s Freemasons website or The Honorable Fraternity of Ancient Freemasons website.

    For more information about joining the Old Bradfield Lodge contact the Lodge Secertary or visit the website.
