Freemasons in France

Welcome to Le Touquet Loge Nº 89

We are Freemasons in France.
Le Touquet Lodge No 89 is an English speaking Freemasons' Lodge in Le Touquet, France.

The Lodge is situated in the Masonic Province of Flanders and we are therefore considered French Freemasons although our origins are English. It was founded in 1965 and is warranted under the Grande Loge Nationale Francaise

Our members are mainly English and most of our mother lodges are in England. We have brethren from all walks of life but we all have one thing in common.
We enjoy our Masonry!

The Lodge meets three times a year, usually on a Saturday in May, July and September. Our meetings normally start around 5:00pm and so we sit down for dinner (the festive board) at 7:30pm, following a champagne reception. Ladies are welcome to join us for the reception and at the festive board. A number of French brethren also attend our meetings and the festive board, including Grand Officers and Provincial Grand Officers. A great time is always had by all and we leave the venue looking forward to the next time we can  meet.

The Beginning

In 1964, members of Godefroi de Bouillon Lodge No.6 decided that  they would like to open a "Summer Lodge." They therefore petitioned the Grand Master that they wished to consecrate a new lodge to be based at Le Touquet. Le Touquet was a small coastal resort 20 miles along the coast from Boulogne. It had a long established reputation for its superb restaurants and Hotels and was again restoring its pre-war reputation. This was, of course, as the finest and most chic resort in Northern France. The Grand Master gave his consent and on 8th May 1965 amid scenes of great splendour and rejoicing, Le Touquet Loge was consecrated at the Bristol Hotel Le Touquet, by Rt.W.Bro. R.W.Robinson PAGM.
