Apply for a place on a WFWI event via your WI Secretary or, if a non-member, email events@wfedwi.org.uk to register your interest. Payment is needed at the time of application/booking.

Spaces are allocated after the closing date, so there is no advantage to an early application. If an event is oversubscribed, places are allocated by ballot. Do not despair if the closing date has passed as there may still be places available, so email the office to check: events@wfedwi.org.uk.
