Polytechnic Lodge of Instruction 2023

The Polytechnic Lodge of Instruction meets regularly at Freemasons Hall and usually starts around 6.30pm followed by a couple of pints in the bar afterwards.

The Polytechnic Lodge of Instruction is fully recognised by the Emulation Lodge of Improvement.

The Lodge of Instruction is key to the guarantee of a good meeting of which the members can be proud and which hopefully will give pleasure to our visitors. The purpose of any Lodge of Instruction is to provide an opportunity for the younger Brethren to become versed in the ritual and symbolism of Freemasonry.

All Officers of The Polytechnic Lodge are asked to attend the Polytechnic Lodge of Instruction or any other Lodge of Instruction closer to their home or work. Ideally, this should a Lodge of Instruction that rehearses the Emulation Ritual. Acceptance of an office in The Polytechnic Lodge is considered a pledge of the strict performance of duties thereof with a requirement to attend the Lodge of Instruction. The invitation towards any visitor to attend our LOI is the same as that for our main meetings and we would be pleased to welcome you to our informal and relaxed proceedings.

The following ceremonies will be rehearsed and perfected on the below dates to match the work at the next regular lodge meeting:-
