Outings & Events
Every outing or event featured here are advertised through Flyers which are sent to the WIs in our monthly mailings. You can also download the current ones from this site by clicking on the appropriate events in the listings.
Bookings are made through your WI Secretary, you tell her that you would like a ticket for the event or trip and pay her the correct fee. She will collate all of the orders, complete the necessary forms and order the tickets from Federation House for you. We are sorry but at the moment we are unable to process ticket requests from individual members.
Sometimes events and visits are open to guests. However, our 4000+ Warwickshire WI members will always be our priority.
Burghley House Trip
May 11 @ 8:45 am - 4:30 pm£37.50
Burghley House near Stamford was designed and built by Sir William Cecil, Lord High Treasurer to Elizabeth I and is one of the largest houses of the Elizabethan age. The kitchens and staterooms are especially worth a visit as are the extensive parklands which were laid out by Capability Brown. Your trip will include coffee/tea and biscuits on arrival and a 20-minute talk giving the history of the family and this amazing house. There is a restaurant where refreshments are available and a picnic area should you wish to take a packed lunch. Please note there won’t be a comfort stop on the journey to and from the house due to the lack of services available en route.
