In less than two years the Olympic flame will burn bright above London for the first time since 1948. Freemasonry was at the birth of the modern Olympic movement and masons were active in many of the world's earliest sporting organisations. To celebrate the London Olympic Games and these masonic sporting connections, two London lodges, Spencer Park Lodge, No. 6198 and Royal York Lodge of Perseverance, No. 7, are organising a masonic meeting immediately prior to the Games.
It will be open to all regular Freemasons, including Brethren from overseas, and is particularly aimed at those who have an interest in sport. The proposed programme includes a reception in the Library and Museum at Freemasons’ Hall and a gala dinner.
