Who are we?

Tyne Dock Lodge (Consecrated in May 1921) has a deserved reputation for first-class ceremonies and excellence in its Ritual, combining this with a friendly approach which seeks to encourage all members get the maximum enjoyment out of their Membership.

What we do

Tyne Dock Lodge cherishes and respects the traditions and practices handed down for over 100 years, but also embraces modern technology by holding weekly Zoom Meetings to facilitate and encourage the involvement of its members. The Lodge produces a regular Newsletter which keeps members up to date with all aspects of the Lodge. Our Social Events (Ladies Night and Burns Night) are very popular and enable the introduction of friends into our welcoming environment. Our extensive charitable work is evidenced by the Lodge’s name on the Foundation Stone of the Marie Curie Hospice in Newcastle upon Tyne.

Why join us?

Our membership spans newly Initiated brethren in their twenties, setting out on their Masonic adventure, up to nonagenarians who have rich experiences to draw upon for the benefit of the new members. Whatever your age, you will be warmly welcomed into the Lodge, and be encouraged to participate as much as you wish to hopefully increase your Masonic knowledge and proficiency.
