What's On

Thank you!

 

Huge thanks to everyone who took part in our inaugural Waggy Walk. Lots of fun, gorgeous dogs and great goody bags, rosettes, treats and refreshments. Everyone had a good time, despite the wet weather, so it looks like we’d better start planning the next one. Thanks to all our sponsors, supporters and volunteers.

What’s on at Wimbledon Guild this Autumn?

 

Our regular Pilates class is so popular we've added another one on Tuesday mornings with the same great teacher. And if you've wanted to learn about French culture and language, we've got just the thing: French Fridays, a friendly and fun way to learn. Is it too early to mention Christmas? We've got carols, Christmas shopping on the Southbank, mulled wine and of course the Great Big Xmas Pudding Pub Quiz too. Take a look at everything on offer in our new What's on guide here
