WHO WE ARE
The Society was formed in 1917 with the objects of increasing the interest of
brethren in Masonry by means of lectures, papers and discussions on its
history, antiquities, ritualism and symbolism, and to provide a centre and bond
of union for masonic students in the Province of Bristol. It has become a forum
in which brethren from the Province of Bristol can meet with brethren from
their neighbouring Provinces. Membership is open to any Master Mason.
WHAT WE DO
The Society meets five times a year; masonic regalia is not worn at these
meetings. Meetings usually take the form of a paper, delivered by an invited
speaker or a member of the Society, followed by a discussion. Occasionally an
old ritual is demonstrated by a visiting Demonstration Team.
In addition the Society has a Summer Outing to a place of some masonic
The Society also organises the Bristol Provincial Carol Service, early in
December; this is its main Charitable fund-raising activity.
