Welcome to Marmion Lodge No. 1060
Tamworth’s Oldest Masonic Lodge
Marmion Lodge was opened on 13th June 1865 by Charter of the United Grand Lodge of England and is Tamworth’s oldest Masonic lodge.
The Lodge takes its name from the influential Marmion family, who, as hereditary champions to the Dukes of Normandy and, by virtue of the Norman conquest, the new Kings of England from 1066, held Tamworth castle for six generations from c1100 to 1294.
Marmion Lodge initially met in the White Horse Hotel, now demolished, which stood on the corner of Lichfield Street and Silver Street. The Lodge moved to its current location at 29 Lichfield Street in 1930.
As with all masonic lodges affiliated to the United Grand Lodge of England, membership is open to men 21 years and upwards. The Lodge meets monthly from October to May. Although these meetings are open to members only, the Lodge also holds a number of social events during the year, to which members bring family and friends. Our social events range from the very informal Burn’s Night supper to the formal black tie Ladies Festival and many things in between.
