About our Masonic centre

Southend Masonic Centre has been hosting Freemasonry for nearly 50 years in Essex. Previously situated in Woodgrange Drive, near to the Kursaal, the Centre was transferred to Saxon Hall, Aviation Way and the first Masonic meeting was held at the new premises on January 4th, 2006. The centre currently has over 2,000 members from 88 different Masonic organisations.


The centre boasts two Temples where Freemasons hold their meetings, one of which has a capacity for up to 170; the other up to 85.

The centre can further accommodate up to six Essex lodges of instruction at a time.
