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! We now stand with membership of 110 members strong!

This is a "New Wave" WI Group for Ipswich with a mission to bring all that the WI should be & More, but to make it accessible and relevant to the Modern Woman..

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 … so far this year our meetings have 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.  All that, and we still have our annual camping weekend, birthday skills swap workshops, annual quiz and Christmas celebrations to look forward to!

If you like what you've seen so far, why not come along to our next meeting to find our more?  Take a look at our 2019 programme on our latest news page to see what we have planned. Guest tickets are £5, which is donated to our nominated charity - Got to Read.

If you would like to come along as a guest or to join the largest WI in the Suffolk East Federation we would love to hear from you.

We look forward to meeting you soon!
