Marmion Lodge was opened on 13th June 1865 by Warrant of the United Grand Lodge of England and is Tamworth’s oldest Masonic Lodge.

The Lodge takes its name from the influential Marmion family, who were hereditary champions to the Dukes of Normandy and, by virtue of the Norman conquest, became champions to the new Kings of England from 1066. The Marmion family held Tamworth castle for six generations from c1100 to 1294. 

Marmion Lodge initially met in the White Horse Hotel, now demolished, which stood on the corner of Lichfield Street and Silver Street. The Lodge moved to its current location at 29 Lichfield Street in 1930. 

As with all Masonic lodges affiliated to the United Grand Lodge of England, membership is open to men 21 years and upwards. The Lodge meets monthly from October to May. Although these meetings are open to members only, the Lodge also holds a number of social events during the year, to which members bring family and friends.
