The Lodge meets on the second Friday of the month except for a summer break in July, August and September with a normal start time of 6.30pm. The Annual Installation Festival, takes place on the second Friday in December.

We have an active social programme. The Lodge currently numbers about forty five members and would be happy to consider applications from any Brother moving into the area, or from anyone who may be interested in joining Freemasonry.


Based so close to the Port, and named after the Royal Edward Dock which opened in 1908 the Lodge, originally catered for seafarers and the many who worked or who had business connections in the Avonmouth Docks.


The membership of the Lodge now comes from a much broader cross-section of men but with less direct connection to the Docks. The Lodge membership presently stands at around 45 with a recent influx of new members.


The Masonic Hall at Avonmouth was purpose built in the 19th century and now accommodates five lodges. It is easy to find and within a mile of Junction 18 of the M5 (map) there is ample on street parking. In addition to the Temple we have a bar and the dining room that can seat 80 people in which we hold many social events through the year.

Friendly and great fun Royal Edward Lodge takes its Freemasonry seriously but is very well renowned in the Gloucestershire Province as a friendly Lodge which knows how to put on a good evening and to have a great time.

There is always a heartfelt and warm welcome. The environment is supportive and understanding a great source of fun for all.
