On St. John’s Day, the 24th of June 1717 four Lodges in London, which had already existed for some time, came together in the backroom of the Goose and Gridiron Tavern in St. Paul’s Churchyard to form the first Grand Lodge in the world. In honour of this sentinel event, Union Solmon Lodge №9 conducts an annual table lodge in July. If you’re a Freemason and are interested in good food, good company, and a good time please join us!
