Game, Set and Match: Freemasons and Sport

With football and the Olympic Games dominating the news this summer, the Library and Museum’s latest exhibition at Great Queen Street celebrates freemasons’ sporting achievements.

Many freemasons have been active amateur or professional sportsmen, or have been involved with the administration of all types of sport. Did you know that the only man to win an Olympic Gold Medal and be awarded the Victoria Cross was also a freemason? The exhibition will be your chance to see Sir Alf Ramsey’s apron, along side medals from several Olympic Games.

The exhibition runs from 2nd July until the end of the year, and further details are available on the Library and Museum’s website.
