Welcome to the North West London Women’s Institute!

We are a group of women with wide ranging interests, who meet regularly for socialising and an interesting talk or activity.
At our monthly meeting, in St Anne’s, Salusbury Road, we have talks from local community women and inclusive activities (such as dance or craft) centred around our members’ interests.

We meet on the 2nd Wednesday of every month at 7:30pm

Any woman is welcome to join us for a first meeting free of charge. Please get in touch with us via our email nwlondonwi@gmail.com to sign up and get further information.

Guests £5, first meeting is free

Next Meeting: Wednesday 14 June – Guided walk

We will be venturing out of North West London for our June meeting which will be a guided walk, led by Herstorical Tours, around the Farringdon area. We will learn about the history of the area (with a particular focus on women), including stories of ghosts and witches!

Please note: we will not be meeting at St Anne’s in June

The venue for our monthly meetings is St. Anne’s, 125 Salusbury Road, NW6 6RG (parking available, or if coming by public transport it is close to Brondesbury Park or Queen’s Park stations or on bus route 206)

No need to let us know in advance, just show up on the night and we’d love to see you!
