The Women’s Institute – Think Again at the Fair, Win Tickets!

Think the Women’s Institute isn’t for you? Think again. Back in the day it might have been all about jam, jerusalem and jolly cake sales, but thinks have changed. Many of the newer city clubs attract a much younger audience, and shun some of the traditions in favour of activities such as burlesque, guerrilla knitting and sushi making. The local Shoreditch Sisters describe themselves as feminist, and the Dalston Darlings hang out with the Vagenda and have baked cookies with the body parts of a similar name.

In 2017 the annual WI Fair is taking place at the gorgeous Alexandra Palace from March 29th – April 1st. And it actually looks like pretty good fun. The four day event covers learning, travel, shopping, craft, creativity and cooking; many of the stalwarts of the modern woman’s life. If you’re still not sure whether the WI is for you, as a modern and open minded individual, surely the only rational thing to do would be to check it out. And Shoreditch Radio are offering a pair of tickets for free! All you have to do is share this article on Facebook or Twitter, and link to Shoreditch Radio with the hashtag #wifaircomp. We’ll pick a winner from random by 26th March and let you know!

Tickets are £14 for non members, and £12.50 for members.
