We are a dynamic and fun group of women who enjoy socialising, education and learning new skills, all over a glass of wine and tea and cake!

We hold meetings at 7.30pm on the 3rd Wednesday of every month at the Memorial Hall. Our meetings are varied and interesting, with speakers and activities covering a wide range of topics; meetings cover general interest, educational, crafts and demonstrations.

Visitors are very welcome at any time (£4 fee) and there is no pressure to join. Please feel free to come along and try us out.

Activities, workshops and outings

Charlbury WI also regularly organise other activities for our members to enjoy in addition to our monthly meetings, including craft workshops, book club, outings, cinema visits and walks.
