Grand Master’s Lodges of Instruction for Mark Master Masons and Royal Ark Mariners


The Grand Master’s Lodges of Instruction for Mark Master Masons and Royal Ark Mariners was established to help members of those Degrees practice and learn the Ceremonies of those two beautiful and important degrees in Freemasonry.


The Lodges meet primarily fortnightly on Mondays from September to March at Mark Mason’s Hall, St James’s Street London SW1A 1PL, where the Mark Advancement Ceremony, Mark Installation Ceremony, RAM Elevation Ceremony and Installation  for both R A M and Mark Ceremonies are rehearsed on a regular basis and every subscribing brother of a Mark and Royal Ark Mariner Lodge is welcome to join. In addition during the Masonic Year the Grand Master’s Demonstration Team visit Provinces to demonstrate one or more of the Mark and RAM ceremonies. Full details can be obtained from the Secretary W. Bro. C J B Lloyd at c.j.b.lloyd@btinternet.com.(telephone number 01702 588676 )

The dates and plans for the 20176-18 season can be found by clicking here, noting that each evening, there are three different sessions across both Mark and R A M, and including Installation (restricted to those who are or have been in the Chair) and bringing in new members.



The culmination of the season is the Annual Festival where the Team demonstrates the Mark Advancement Ceremony including the lecture on the Mark Master Masons Degree and the Royal Ark Mariners Elevation Ceremony including an explanation of the Tracing Board.
The Annual Festival is hosted by a different Province each year and it is hoped that the Brethren of this Province and other Provinces will be present in strength to support the hosting Provincial Gand Master at the Festival.

The Demonstration workings are of a very high standard and offer an excellent opportunity for observing how the rituals are intended to be performed.

The Meeting dates planned for the GM LOI are shown by clicking here, and brethren are advised to check before attending.
