We are a group of Freemasons from all walks of life, with varying interests, professions and activities and of all ages and we welcome your interest in our Lodge. The Lodge holds eight meetings a year on the 3rd Friday of the months January to April and September to December. Hotspur Lodge meets at Fern Avenue Masonic Centre, Jesmond, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE2 2RA.
We are part of one of the world’s oldest secular fraternal societies, a society of men concerned with moral and spiritual values. Its members are taught its precepts (moral lessons and self-knowledge) by a series of ritual dramas which follow ancient forms and use stonemasons’ customs and tools as allegorical guides.
Lodge meetings are followed by a ‘Festive Board’, which at Hotspur Lodge usually consists of a four-course meal. This allows for an informal and sociable end to the evening.
We also enjoy sociable occasions both in and out of the lodge:
The three Great Principles by which we stand are Brotherly Love, Relief, and Truth. Freemasons are taught to practise charity and to care, not only for their own, but also for the community as a whole – both by charitable giving, and by voluntary efforts and works as individuals.
