all about us


Founded on September 15th 2016, Cake and Revolution WI “burst onto the scene in Ipswich” ... Looking to mix a fresh modern outlook with a dash of tradition. We formed with a huge intake of Members on our Launch Evening, making us immediately the Largest WI in the Suffolk East Federation!

This is a "New Wave" WI Group for Ipswich with a mission to bring all that the WI should be & More to local women.

By embracing new technology and using social media to unite our members & ignite the interest of newfound audiences, we hope that we can strive to make a difference in our local Community and to the lives of our members!

Meetings are held on the 3rd Thursday of each month at The Manor Ballroom, starting at 7.30pm.

Since our formation, 2 more New WI's have gone on to form for Ipswich, illustrating the demand that is out there for this amazing Women's organisation.

So far ...

To give a flavour of what we do … last year our meetings involved a fundraising comedy night with BAFTA winning Kate Smurthwaite, dancing, yoga, an introduction to veganism, Rubbish Walks with Jason Alexander, learning all about the bees and we took part in Wildlife Group's Spring Wood Day.  We also held our annual camping weekend, popular skill swap workshops to celebrate our 3rd birthday, a quiz night and plenty of Christmas crafting to complete our year.

If you like what you've seen so far, why not come along to our next meeting to find our more?  Guest tickets are £5, which is donated to our nominated charity - BEAM Ipswich.

If you would like to come along as a guest or to join the largest WI in the Suffolk East Federation please get in touch with us.

We look forward to meeting you soon!
