Bridlington Masonic hall on St John’s Avenue, Bridlington is home to five Craft Lodges, three Royal Arch Chapters, one Mark Lodge, three Knight Templar Preceptories and one Rose Croix Chapter, as well as other non-Masonic organisations who make use of our excellent facilities, including a licensed bar and our own in-house caterers.
The dining hall, bar and catering facilities are available for hire to other organisations to hold meetings and also for other functions, such as wedding receptions and private parties.
The original Masonic Hall was opened in October 1875. You will observe the older brickwork to the left in the photograph. In 1925 the Building was greatly extended to its present form, which was dedicated by The Rt Hon. Earl of Ronaldshay, the Provincial Grand Master of Yorkshire, North & East Ridings.
The ownership of the building is vested in Trustees of the three oldest Lodges who funded the expansion and it is managed by the Bridlington Masonic Hall Joint Management Committee consisting of representatives from each of the four original Craft Lodges who meet on a regular basis.
Please address any correspondence in regard to hiring the Masonic Hall to:
Bridlington Masonic Hall Joint Lodge Board,
St John’s Avenue, Bridlington,

Rather than working on buildings like the masons of old, today’s Freemasons focus on building themselves as people of integrity, and membership provides the structure to help achieve that goal.
One of the oldest social organisations in the world, Freemasonry is not defined by an ideology. It is open to people from all religions and political persuasions and provides the common foundation for friendships between members, many of which will last for life.
With a membership of more than 150,000 people drawn from communities across the UK, Freemasonry brings people together irrespective of their race, religion or any other perceived differences that can divide us as a society.
Kindness and charitable giving are deeply ingrained within the principles of Freemasonry. The organisation provides a support structure that helps members make positive contributions to communities and worthwhile causes through fundraising events or volunteer work.
