Museums at Night: Symbols

Come and join us for Museums at Night and learn more about the symbols of Freemasonry. For centuries symbols have been used to represent ideas or qualities and they are universally used in modern life. Freemasons use symbols to reinforce moral lessons and, when combined with words in their ceremonies, this creates a memorable learning environment. Throughout the evening there will be gallery talks about star items in the Library and Museum’s collection – including Winston Churchill’s apron. Meet a Freemason who will talk to you about the symbols used on their regalia and in ceremonies. Why not try your hand at making a picture using symbols to illustrate your own messages and principles. Join a tour to the Grand Temple to see the vast array of symbols contained within or just come and relax at the pop-up bar and enjoy music inspired by symbols. Everyone is welcome and activities are free.
