It is one of the 160 Private Lodges that comprise the Provincial Grand Lodge of Sussex

The Lodge is affiliated with the University of Sussex and Brighton University under the United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE) Universities Scheme.

This website serves to tell you more about this Lodge in particular and we hope it will be of interest to both masons, and non masons but would like to know more about Sussex freemasonry.

We extend to you our warmest greetings and sincerely hope that you will find something of interest to you and which will help you understand freemasonry more. 

We welcome enquiries from good men interested in becoming a freemason and also joining members.  Please email us here.

History of the Lodge

The Arthur Jolly Lodge was founded to commemorate the Boys Festival of 1966, at which the Provincial Grand Master of Sussex, R.W.Bro Arthur Jolly presided, and which raised a total of £444,000 for the Boys School. 


It was named after the Provincial Grand Master himself, not merely as a tribute to his work as a freemason but to recognise his total contribution to society .
