Grand Master's Lodges of Instruction

Grand Master’s Lodges of Instruction
For
Mark Master Masons & Royal Ark Mariners

The Grand Master’s Lodges of Instruction meet on First and Third Monday of each month, commencing with the Masonic season starting in September to March at Mark Masons’ Hall, 86 St.James’s Street, London SW1A 1PL. The Advancement and Elevation ceremonies are rehearsed at each meeting; with the Elevation ceremony starting at 5.00pm and the Advancement ceremony starting at 6pm
The Installation ceremonies for Mark and RAM are rehearsed once each month on alternate Mondays; and also when requested by the members to accommodate their individual schedule.

The instructions are given in a friendly and relaxed manner to an approved standard of ritual, to fit individual requirement and need. Regalia is not worn for the GMLoI, but smart casual dress is a requirement at MMH (no jeans or trainers!).
The Lodges of Instructions’ season culminates with the Annual Festival, at which the Advancement and Elevation ceremonies are demonstrated, and is usually held during the last week in April, on a date and at a venue, mutually agreed by the GMLoI’s committee and also the committee of the host Mark Province.

The next GMLoI’s Annual Festival will be held on Wednesday, 29th April, 2020 at Mark Masons’ Hall, 86.St.James’s Street, London SW1A 1PL, at which the R.W.Bro. A. I. Torrance, Provincial Grand Master for the Mark Province of Kent, will preside.
