Lodge Open Days 2019
Lodge Open Days are being planned from May to October 2019. It is open for any Lodge to have its own open day but much of the effort will go towards the larger Masonic centres where multiple Lodges can be involved. It is planned that a member of the Provincial executive will be present to open the proceedings and the Provincial Grand Orator will be available to give a presentation. Contact your Lodge ‘Champion’ or W.Bro. Ady Jarvis for more details. Details of the dates of each open day will be published on this website as they are received.
Introduction to Freemasonry Evenings.
These introduction evenings are for potential Freemasons and their partners to find out more about our wonderful organisation in a relaxed and informal manner. Light refreshments will be available so booking is essential for any of the venues.
During 2017, Open Days and ‘An Introduction to Masonry’ evenings were held on 19 occasions at Masonic centres across the Province and all were deemed to be a huge success.
The Open Days for 2018 have all been successfully concluded and the dates for 2019 will be posted here when available.

Norfolk Provincial Library and Museum
Following the successful Tercentenary exhibition at the ‘Museum of Norwich at the Bridewell’
and the reorganisation of the Provincial Offices at St. Giles, it was decided to use this opportunity
to re-establish the Provincial Museum to add to the existing Provincial Library.
The PGM was generously able to approve funding for new lighting, display cabinets and refurbishment.
The Museum is located in the first room on the right as you enter 47, St. Giles.
It is early days but you are already able to see some items in our illuminated display cabinets through the newly glazed door panels.
Our collection includes Jewels, Aprons, Rare Books, Regalia, Glassware Pottery and other Masonic items mostly associated with Norfolk Freemasonry.
We plan to have some of the exhibits on permanent display, such as the Provincial Grand Masters Chair and Sword, but also other cabinets with
regularly changing themes such as the current ‘Freemasons at War’ curated by martin Hardy-Shepherd.
Our hope would be for Lodges, other degrees and individuals to have a themed display of suitable size for several months at a time.
The Library is a reference library and the books are mostly kept in storage but can easily be accessed by appointment’
