As part of the Celebrations of 300 years a number of the larger Masonic Centres wil be open to the public.
During each Open Day the Lodge Rooms within the centres will be open and masons will be on site to answer questions about Freemasonry, the Lodge and the building. In Essex there are very interesting buildings used by Freemasons, a number of which are listed or of historical interest. In addition at each Open Day there will be an exhibit from the Essex Provincial Library & Museum of historical masonic regalia, literature and photographs.
There will also be other exhibits from charities supported by Freemasons in Essex, along with refreshments.
