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.

Author Barbara Lawson-Reay will tell us about the founder members of the WI. The early 1900s North-east Wales was a dangerous place for women, Suffragist’s meetings descended into near riot, or in some cases were banned by police before they even started! One man and his dog, Colonel Stapleton Cotton and Tinker were responsible for the foundation of the first WI in Britain at Llanfairpwll, Anglesey, in 1915.
