Founded on 24th March 1920, on the back of the “war to end all wars”,
Aurora, the dawn, was born out of a deep felt sense of hope for better days.
Aurora Lodge is made up of 50+ members, all deeply commited to their civic and charitble responsibilities. We all welcome you onto our website.

Aurora Lodge prides itself in its membership, rich in diversity of ideas and walks of life.
A place where the 20 years old rubs shoulder with the somewhat over 80, where the architect, the student, and the office worker enjoy each other’s company week in, week out.
More importantly, we make sure that Wednesday night is that night in the week when our members can forget about their troubles and simply indulge and relish life in great company.
Join us in forming the deepest of life-long friendships.
Every year, Aurora puts on a busy social and Masonic calendar for its members, family, and friends. From snooker, to day-trips, to the theatre. Below are some of the many hihglights on our Masonic schedule.
We celebrate the installation of a new Worshpiful Master to lead the lodge into the ensuing year with our always-popular installation banquet.
April marks the first ceremony of the new master and his team, usually through an awe-inducing initiation ceremony.
We officially take a break during August, but we are more than likely to still meet up on Wednesdays for a pint (any excuse to get together will do!).
As Leeds Freemasons are very united, we invite the Masters of all the other lodges to visit us for a night of friendship in September.
October marks the annual visit of our daughter lodge, the Lodge of the Morning Star, keeping those family bonds tight.
Our partners join us for dinner and get a glimpse to what we get up to when not at home – interested prospective members welcome too!
Join the tone-deaf brethren of Aurora Lodge in singing carols while enjoying a typical festive menu to close the year in style.
Celebrating the memory of our brother Robert Burns in a very Scottish atmosphere with Haggis and bagpipes. All kilts welcome!
In February, we elect a new Worshipful Master for the following year, with entertainement provided by the junior brethren (may contain roasts).
The Master’s proverbial Swan Song, a gala evening where everyone puts on their best formal dress, celebrates the Master and dances the night away.
