The Lodge of Friendship No 44 can trace its origins back to 1755 when it first met in Manchester. Today it still meets in Manchester at the newly refurbished Manchester Hall and is a busy and thriving lodge with young brethren and older experienced masons enjoying a lively and stimulating fellowship.
December 2020:- Due to the Corona Virus all meetings have been suspended since March and at this moment we cannot yet plan for any future meetings. We have continued to 'gather' via Zoom and even had a virtual Christmas Party.
If you wish to enquire about Freemasonry or joining the Lodge of Friendship we will do our best to respond to your enquiry.

The Lodge of Friendship No44 was growing very quickly with new members joining. We have three new members waiting to join. The current membership is about forty with a high proportion of younger members. In the last three years we have had a ceremony at most meetings (eight last year) and the younger brethren are encouraged to contribute at least part of the ritual. Members have joined the Level Club (an association of younger masons in Manchester) and contribute to the activities of Manchester Masons.
