Freemasons’ Hall is an art-deco marvel steeped in history. Christmas parties at Freemasons Hall take place in an iconic and historic setting that is a testament to England’s architectural grandeur. Nestled in the vibrant Covent Garden’s Great Queen Street, it has been hosting events and welcoming visitors since its first Hall was constructed in 1776.
Christmas parties at Freemasons’ Hall boast a variety of spaces, each bearing its own charm and functionality. The Gallery Suite & Ante Room and the Old Boardroom grace the ground floor. The Gallery Suite, a spacious rectangular room, can accommodate up to 220 attendees, perfect for theatre-style events, standing receptions, or dining. The Ante Room, ideal for refreshments and drinks receptions, and the Old Boardroom, suitable for more intimate meetings or as a breakout room, further complement the ground floor’s offering.
The Hall’s most opulent spaces are on the first floor – the Grand Temple and the Vestibules, which can host parties and receptions for up to 450 standing guests. The Vestibules can also accommodate up to 250 diners, with a separate section for a drinks reception. The adjoining Processional Corridor and Grand Officers’ Robing Room add to the venue’s grandeur and versatility, offering combined capacity for up to 850 guests.
Behold the Grand Temple, Freemasons’ Hall’s largest and most magnificent space. This grand setting offers fixed theatre-style seating for up to 1,625 guests, or 928 if only the lower-level seating is used. This layout suits smaller audiences of 350 – 400 exceptionally well, with self-contained conferencing facilities available in combination with the Vestibules and the Past Grand Officers’ Robing Room. Additionally, the Grand Temple’s seating can be staged over – fully or in part – to provide flat floored spaces for dining, standing receptions, or dancing, with a maximum capacity of 1,138 if fully staged over.

Simply magnificent! Whether you are initiated or not, this museum is worth visiting. A life is not enough to understand each symbolism and enjoy so much information, except for a few hours that one would like to never end, but it is nice to have the opportunity to live this unique and incomparable experience. The paintings have the Mona Lisa technique, it is very interesting and fun at the same time. I loved the aprons section, it really fascinated me, seeing each apron from different nations and the symbols, the history and the teaching and learning that they are impregnated with, it is amazing to be able to stand in front of them and imagine everything that those aprons represent and they have listened. They're silent witnesses, imbued with invaluable knowledge I wish they could add something from the American continent, such as Mexico and Benito Juárez, he became the last among the Brothers. Only as a reference and general culture that in America, specifically Mexico, where we also do good and honor the Masonic Order. If you don't mind, I hope I'm not offending you with my suggestion. I was very happy to have been able to be there and have access to so much old and valuable information. England has a lot of teaching if you know how to look carefully and humbly. Thank you. ' .

Did not know much about freemasonry before our visit. The expo/muséum is nicely explanatory even for non Freemasons. A lot of items exposed have also an intrinsic historical value outside of the order. The staff was very kind and enthusiastic. The building is also massive and forth a detour to look at as well ! Keep up the good work and thanks for the pleasant time !

What a spectacular building with generations of history. The purpose of our visit was to see a string orchestra performance of Vivaldi by candlelight. The Freemasons Hall is magnificent with architecture and craftsmanship to match, all of which made this hall the perfect setting for such a musical experience. A few photos are attached but these are limited and do not do the place justice as you need to see this place for yourself.

Absolutely amazing building and it was such an amazing afternoon on Christmas Eve (2022) sitting in the hall and singing carols with everyone. Beautiful architecture I hope will remain standing for many more years and accessible for public to visit and admire. Also hope more people learn about the charitable work of the Freemasons.
