Taurus Lodge No. 3981 is the Private Lodge of the Worshipful Company of Butchers. It is a friendly extension of our very special livery and a tradition and experience we aim to enjoy and preserve. Our position in Freemasonry and particularly in London is a complimentary fit to the Butchers’ Company and its activities in support of charity, education and fellowship.
If you are not accustomed to Freemasonry, it is one of the world’s oldest secular fraternal societies. It is a friendly society of men with an interest in moral and spiritual values and its members are taught its principles and teachings using stonemasons’ customs and tools as an allegory or guide. Freemasons are one of the UK’s largest charitable doners and our lodge builds on the friendship bonds of our livery and serves to do good in society.
While Freemasonry for women operates in parallel, there is no female lodge yet associated with the Company. Taurus would like to be as transparent and open as possible with all members of the livery and we are looking at the feasibility of events to invite anyone interested in what we do, be they male or female liverymen.
We also offer a welcome to liverymen from the Butcher’s Company who are masons and may or may not be active in other lodges. We also welcome new candidates to freemasonry via initiation at Taurus meetings. If you are not familiar with the world of freemasonry or just want to know more about Taurus Lodge, please feel free to browse our pages ‘why join’ above. As with other lodges, Taurus is always pleased to see visitors attending our meetings andenjoying our renowned hospitality at our Livery’s Great Hall.
Freemasonry is one of the worlds oldest secular fraternal societies and in England and Wales it is practiced under the United Grand Lodge of England rules.
London’s Royal Arch Chapters and Companions continue to revel in each other’s company with installations, inductions, proclamations, 50-year certificates, Centenaries and a flurry of exaltations taking place.
