Events and Calendar

Main Monthly Meetings: We meet on the last Tuesday of each month, each meeting has a different theme and is planned a few months in advance (see below for our programme for 2022). All our main meetings  start at 7.15pm for 7.30pm unless otherwise specified.   If you’re not a WI member, visiting us costs only £5. Details of each meeting can be found on our public Facebook page.

Craft nights: We also meet casually for a bit of crafting, cake and coffee on the 2nd Tuesday of every month, from 7pm in the IKEA Restaurant. We post individual events on our Facebook Page for these evenings but have a look at our Craft Night page too for more information.

Book Club: The Sotonettes Book Club meet on the third Tuesday of the month* at 7pm in the Maritimo Lounge in Ocean Village. For more info, head over to our Book Club page. You also find more details and join the monthly event by going to our Facebook page. *NB There is no book club meeting in December.

Cake Club: Our Cake Club meets 3 or 4 times a year, normally whenever there are 5 Tuesdays in a month. We choose a different theme each time and welcome both bakers and non-bakers (if you are not bringing baked goods we ask for a donation to our nominated charity).  Please go to our Cake Club Page for more information and photos.

2022 Programme:   See below for the planned meetings and keep an eye on our Facebook page for more details as we get closer to each meeting. *Please note that our programme can be subject to change*.
