Welcome to The Alexandra WI!

Welcome to The Alexandra WI, the Women’s Institute for Muswell Hill and Crouch End, North London. We started out in 2010 and we have members from their 30s to their 70s – we’re a diverse group and all women are very welcome!

We usually meet 8-10pm on the first Tuesday of the month at CUFOS, end of The Avenue, London N10 2QE. It’s the old Alexandra Palace railway station building, just behind Ally Pally.

Next meeting 7pm Tuesday 7 July 2020 is online!

We’re meeting online for the fourth time on 7 June.

It’s summer and we were planning on our annual wine tasting in the CUFOS courtyard, but instead it’s bring you own tipple and our fourth Zoom meeting, where we’ll be talking about… travel!
Travel has been so restricted during the lockdown, this is an opportunity to reflect on travel plans and to share travel ideas.

If you’re a member, we’ll be emailing details of the meeting. If you have been a guest in the past, or are curious about our WI (even while we cannot welcome you in person!) and are interested in joining our meeting, please email us.

We look forward to catching up with everyone!

Due to the ongoing coronavirus situation, the usual regular activities of the WI at local, federation and national level, and at our wonderful Denman College, have largely been suspended. It’s a difficult time for an organisation whose very purpose is to bring women together.

We’re using the time to find innovative ways to keep communicating and sharing information and ideas, whether via chat groups, video meetings or good old fashioned phone calls.

We’re definitely still here: the WI is strong!

We send best wishes to our followers and friends at this challenging time
and hope to see you again at our meetings and events soon.

Please scroll down and read about our past meetings and do check the calendar for future programmes, which will resume as soon as we are safely able to do so.


How do I become a member?

Yes, you can just turn up!

You can attend a meeting as a guest (£5 donation) or become a member on the spot (payment by cash, card, bank transfer or cheque).

Please have a browse of our site… but if you have any questions, please do email us.
