Sat 20 Sep - Tue 31 Mar Kent Freemasonry and the First World War


When war was declared on 4th August 1914, freemasonry in England found itself in an unparalleled position. Freemasonry was and remains non-political, and the discussion of politics at masonic meetings was and still is taboo, but 100 years ago the United Grand Lodge of England, the governing body for freemasonry in England and Wales and here in the front line county of Kent, had to contend with the impact of a global war and the politics that it understandably created.

A new temporary exhibition at Canterbury's Kent Museum of Freemasonry displays many items relating to The Great War and freemasonry that will be of interest to historians, anthropologists, genealogists and masons alike.
