Welcome to The Manchester Women's Institute

Manchester WI formed in May 2012, a first in the history of the city! 4 years on, President and Co-founder Lex and the lovely ladies of the committee hope that our 5th year is just as fun and fabulously educational as ever. 

We have such an interesting & wide variety of members ranging from 18 to 60+ in age, with careers spanning from associate directors to trainee solicitors & art students. A
s a group we hope to present a modern twist of the traditional WI, revisiting fabulous skills such as jam making, knitting, and sewing, but also giving time over to subjects relative to today’s women such as mental health awareness, self defence and community involvement

For the second year running, our members have chosen MASH (Manchester Action on Street Health) as our annual charity. MASH provide a range of confidential and non-judgemental services to women working in the sex industry in Greater Manchester.

Each month we meet on the 4th Tuesday @ 7pm in the Baronial Hall of Chethams Music School in Manchester City Centre.

Each meeting there's a speaker or an activity as well as a chance to catch up with other members over a cup of tea and a slice of cake.

Overall we hope to enjoy another fun, eventful & gratifying year in 2016 at the Manchester WI!
