Originally built in 1878 as a private residence for the Twist family, Dalecote House is an imposing Victorian property located in the heart of Coventry and still retains many of the original features.
It is home to 10 Masonic lodges meeting in the Coventry and local Warwickshire area. The building was purchased by the Drapers Guild around 1975 when it became the Drapers Company Club. Around 1988 the building was bought from the Guild by the Coventry Freemasons. The building provides a public insight into the worldwide fraternal society of the Freemasons.
Come along and get this unique opportunity to look around this masonic temple and view the displays of Masonic Regalia and furniture as well as learning about the history of Freemasonry in Coventry, its relevance today plus Women's Freemasonry. Local freemasons will be on hand to answer questions.
