Charlbury WI

Charlbury's thriving WI comprises a group of women of all ages.  Our get togethers are informal and entertaining, and our monthly programme provides something of interest for everyone.  Of course, being the WI, in normal times, we always treat ourselves to coffee, tea and delicious home-made cake during the evening!

Charlbury WI is part of the Oxfordshire Federation of Women’s Institutes, 5 Court Farm Barns, Medcroft Road, Tackley, Oxfordshire OX5 3AL (

This is an open group, you do not need to be a WI member to join in. All crafters are welcome to bring along any project that they have on the go and have a drink and chat as they stitch, sew, spin, knit or crochet! Need a little help on a project?
