The Cumberland Lodge was founded in 1918. The first Master of the Lodge was Hugh Cumberland (hence the name of the Lodge) who was a Land Agent and Auctioneer from Luton.
Our first meetings were held in the Town Hall before it was burnt down on 19th July 1919 (nothing to do with us I must add), fortunately we did not have a Lodge meeting that day.
Without a Town hall the Lodge went on to meet at various venues in the town until 1924 when we build our own Masonic Hall on Church Street Luton.
We continued to meet there till 1996 when we moved to our current premises in Bowling Green Lane. Our old premises on Church Street is now become a Pizza Express but you can still see the Masonic sign about the door.
Over the Years Cumberland Lodge has become one of the most successful Lodges in Luton raising huge amounts of money for worthy causes. Our members come from all walks of life, religions, backgrounds and truly reflects the diversity of Luton itself.
Apart from our Lodge meetings we have a very active social calendar where we involve our partners and families, we are an incredibly happy and friendly bunch and are known amongst many as the friendliest Lodge in Luton.
