Events

The programme includes occasional talks, coffee mornings, luncheons, receptions, concerts and other cross-cultural activities such as the Friendship/Cultural visits, all of which are designed to promote friendship and understanding between women of member countries or who are members of likeminded organisations.  These events are held in a variety of interesting locations, from private homes, restaurants and clubs, to Embassies and High Commissions and funds raised go, primarily, to the Council’s support of Training Programmes (see Courses page).

Where the venue is not restrictive on numbers, events are opened more widely.

Recently The Women’s Council has joined six other organisations with ties to the Commonwealth in sharing a limited number of events.  For example, in 2016 we visited The Middle Temple.  Since then we’ve enjoyed a river trip to Greenwich, including a visit to The Queens House as well as a day in the City of London, visiting Guildhall, Pewterers’Hall and St Lawrence Jewry.

Please contact: Mrs Gerda Pope at info@womenscouncil.org.uk for more information.
