Gloucester Road WI

The WI for Bristol's most interesting and independent high street. Meeting the 3rd Tues monthly.



13 June : Haunted & Hidden Bristol

In June we are out and about in central Bristol, with a tour from Haunted & Hidden Bristol. We’ll be meeting on Tuesday 13th June at 7.15pm for a walking tour starting at 7.30pm. This is an earlier start time than normal as well as being earlier in the month. We’ll be meeting outside the cathedral on College Green and will end up at Kings Street, where we will probably go for a drink if people want to join us and can’t make the walk.

Bristol’s Haunted and Hidden tour won the 2022 Trip Advisor ‘Certificate of Excellence’ and was voted No.1 on GWR FM’S ‘Top 20 Things to do in Bristol’. The route of the tour takes in some of Bristol’s darker and creepier historical locations, along with film and TV locations. Your host has a wealth of local knowledge, delivering historical facts alongside TV and film trivia, with a good dose of humour.

16 May : Dance like No One’s Watching

In May we will be trying out some new dance moves at a new venue – St Bonaventure’s Parish Hall.   The venue will give us more space to move around and could become our new home, if it proves popular.   Bring your neon leg-warmers and Fame dance moves for Mum Dance – a low impact, high sweat, dance fitness class set to school disco smash hits from late 70’s to early 90’s, where nobody cares if you go the wrong way! 

Mum Dance was founded by Hebe, right here in Bristol, and now has classes all over the country, as well as being featured on BBC News as the 80s fitness craze that everyone wants to go to.    So here’s your chance to give it a go!  Hebe will be delivering a bespoke class to Gloucester Road WI on Tuesday 16th May upstairs at St Bonaventure’s Parish Hall BS7 8AF.  Wear appropriate fitness attire (70s/80s inspired is encouraged!), bring a waterbottle and towel and some cash for our raffle. If you’re not a member already, it will cost you £6.50 to get in – but that’s cheaper than a normal Mum Dance Class!
