The club builds on the work of its sister organisation, the Connaught Club, (which caters for Freemasons under the age of 35) to provide a forum for London-based Freemasons to socialise, develop and understand the contemporary role that Freemasonry plays in modern society.
The Connaught Club.
The Connaught Club has been founded to give young Freemasons in London a means to meet and socialise, with like-minded people of similar ages, who might otherwise be dispersed over London’s many Lodges and large geographic area.
Membership of the Club is open to any Freemason under 35 years of age, whose Lodge/Chapter is under Metropolitan Grand Lodge or who lives/works within London.
