We have monthly Open Branch Meetings in Tunbridge Wells. Everyone is welcome. They are for anyone who is interested in achieving gender equality in our lifetime and wants to help us do that. It is a very informal gathering.
More details of what we'll be discussing will be posted on our facebook page nearer the time.
No previous experience in or knowledge of politics required, just a wish to be involved somehow.
We meet in the first floor room of The Opera House Wetherspoons Pub in Tunbridge Wells. It is actually where the first suffragettes of Tunbridge Wells used to meet!
We meet from 7.30pm in the bar on the ground floor and move to the first floor for the meeting at 8pm.

WE Barnet are delighted to invite you to join us for an Evening in Conversation with Dame Una O'Brien as part of our new series of Special Events. Open to all WE members and supporters. Una was the first woman to be Permanent Secretary at The Department of Health.
Una is a Leadership Coach and trustee on several boards. Until 2016, she was a civil servant at the Department of Health (DH). For the last six years there, she was the Permanent Secretary, the first woman to lead the DH, and one of very few women ever to reach that level in the UK civil service. On one view her career within the civil service looks predictable, but if you look more closely at Una's journey and where she started, she was a very unlikely candidate to smash one of Whitehall's glass ceilings.
As well as exploring aspects of Una's career and life journey, we'll also have a chance to hear what she thinks about the state of health and social care. WE hope to see you there.
Tickets in advance are £6.98 (inc admin fee). To book your place using Eventbrite >>
Refreshments and home-cakes will be available. This a WEP Barnet fund-raising event for our GLA 2020 Elections Campaign.
Come for an evening of fun and help us to raise money for our campaigns. We promise great questions that get you thinking, the chance to win extra points from our make-it-out-of-plasticine round a raffle and more. It is £5 per team of four. Bring your friends!
This month we are reading a book by local author Joy Bounds, 'A Song of Their Own, The Fight for Votes for Women in Ipswich' which charts the history of our own local Suffragettes and their fight for votes in Ipswich. A must-read for any local feminist.
And we're pleased to announce that the author herself, Joy will be joining us for the discussion. A great chance to find out more about our local Suffragette history right here in Suffolk.
It doesn't matter if you've read the whole book, half of it or just the first ten pages, come and join in the conversation.
Come along and use your member's vote to elect our Enfield and Haringey GLA super-constituency candidate.
You will have a chance to talk to all the candidates and ask questions, before we hold the election.
Please arrive on time.
NB - Only members can vote - if you are not a member and would like to vote, please click below to join the party before this event.
Come along to our next WE Barnet Open Branch Meeting and get involved in your local branch as we discuss our plans for our branch and the London GLA Elections 2020!
We will then have an informal discussion/chat - this month's topic is Women's Health.
If you are able to join us, please RSVP. If you are unable to attend, it will be great to hear your thoughts and ideas which we can share at the meeting.
We look forward to seeing you.
Our July Branch Meeting is free to attend and open to everyone who is interested. Bring your fundraising ideas, and bring a friend. Let's spread the word and increase our branch membership!
We'd love to invite you to our first pub quiz!
If you are already involved with us then this will be a great opportunity to invite friends and family along to something WEP related to help you start a conversation about the party, what it means to you and how they can get involved, all over a drink whilst debating what the name of that longest river is and what the famous person is really called.
If you aren't involved in WEP already but love a pub quiz then come along! We'd love to have you join us for the evening and if you have any questions about who we are and what we stand for we'd love to chat between rounds!
The evening wil be raising money for the local branch to help us campaign in the up and coming Greater London Assembly Elections in 2020. You can meet our candidates here.
It's £2 per person to enter (bargain), bring a team of five or come along and pick a table!
Bring a snack or two and come along! We’ll be discussing GLA planning and upcoming campaigns, as well as the usual feminist chat! It’s a great chance to come along and say hi, so if you’ve never been to a meet-up before please do feel welcome to join. Families welcome.
This is our monthly Branch meet-up where we discuss local issues, campaign strategising and event planning.
Our meetings are a relaxed and friendly space, open to all members and supporters. WE would love to have you there.
Join us to know what WE are doing and how you can get involved with moving equality forward.
Please RSVP below. We look forward to seeing you!
