Emma Read of Emporium Productions says that she ‘found the fun’ in Freemasonry, as well as uncovering its secrets.
“We told a story of 21st century men and why they joined, what they get out of it, and why they would want to join something where they have to learn all these rituals perfectly and dress up in aprons and gloves,”
The show features stories from across England and Wales, including the consecration of a new Lodge in Cardiff. It features people from all walks of life, from former servicemen in the North-West to a biker in Newcastle.
The show is being distributed by Hat Trick International. Because of the unprecedented levels of access and intrigue that surrounds the Freemasonry, it is expected to attract a global audience.

“People will think they know what a Freemason is – this sort of secret society – so they’ll watch thinking it’s all very peculiar and strange, and that’s why it will sell,” she explains.
Freemasonry has members across the world, including in the US, which will give the show traction there. Hat Trick is also targeting Australia, New Zealand, Scandinavian and Europe.
