So, who am I? Well, here’s a little about me.

Worshipful MasterI’m Robert, I’m in my mid-thirties and live near Reading, in Berkshire. I was initiated into Freemasonry on 25th November 2008, and was Installed into the Chair on 23rd September 2015.

I’m a member of Kennet Lodge 4414 (, which meets at the Masonic Centre in Sindlesham, near Reading. This also the main centre for Berkshire Province (

Kennet Lodge is in the register of The United Grand Lodge of England ( and we use “Emulation” Ritual.

By trade I’m a full time professional magician and mindreader – just illustrates how Freemasonry attracts all sorts of people from all different walks of life. (Of course, I can also be booked for Ladies Nights!)

As well as being a Freemason, I am also a keen astronomer and if it’s a clear night and I’m not in a Lodge meeting then I can often be found in my home observatory. I’m a member of the Newbury Astronomical Society (and on the committee of it) and have appeared on an episode of the BBC’s Sky At Night.

If you are interested in joining the Masons please feel free to drop me an email ( and ask any questions. In order to join Kennet Lodge you need to live with the Masonic Province of Berkshire (which doesn’t follow the actual outline of the county!), however, I’ll be more than happy to point you in the direction of a Lodge closer to you.

If you already are a Mason and a member of a Lodge registered with UGLE then you are more than welcome to visit Kennet Lodge. Coming meetings are listed on the Lodge’s website, and please email me for further details.

Hopefully you’ll find this website useful and assists you in your personal journey through Freemasonry.

Thanks for your time, and hope to see you soon,
