Only Masons who have been made a member of a Lodge may visit and enter a meeting. However, from time to time Masonic halls are opened to the Public and visitors are accepted. This is usually known as an Open day at which visitors will be shown around the building, including the lodge rooms and have the various lodge offices and activities explained to them. Also, Masonic halls are often made available to members of the public for functions such as business meetings, conferences, weddings, birthday parties, funerals and the like. Most have licensed bars and catering facilities.
