The Freemen and Women of the City is looked after and run by a Committee of 15 Freemen and 1 Freewoman, with four main roles of President, Vice President, Honorary Secretary and Treasurer. The rest of the Committee including our Website Administrator is there to support the four main roles.

We have put together some questions and answers below which are frequently asked us. We hope that these help you and we would like to meet you when we join the Mayor, City Councillors and other Organisations on the Gloucester Festival Day in September.

Q. WHAT ARE FREEMEN?

A. In medieval times the term ‘FREEMEN’ was given to Male Citizens who have acquired certain Privileges and Right either by birth rights or being granted the FREEDOMSHIP by a Sovereign. This gave them the Freedom to live and work in a City. We here in Gloucester still grant the Freedom to the City to those who can prove that they have the birth rights.

 

Q. ARE FREEMEN AND FREEMASONS THE SAME THING?

A. No, both the Freemen and Freemasons are completely separate Organisations. The only thing that our Organisations have in common in Gloucester are that we are friends.
