Freemasons told us what it’s like to be part of a secret society, and what they get out of it

We spoke to three Masons at the United Grand Lodge of England, the governing body of Freemasonry in England.

The United Grand Lodge of England has around 200,000 members meeting in over 7,000 Lodges throughout the country.

We asked the three Masons about how they were introduced to the secretive society, what their initiation ceremonies were like, and what perks they receive as members.

We spoke to NHS Doctor Jack Gilliland, Retail Operations Manager for a technology company Elliott Chevin, and Head of customer services for a global education company Barry Hayward.
