Productions consisting of Music Hall, Pantomimes, Plays (one-act and full length), Musical Revues and Variety Shows, meaning that we have attracted a large number of both members and audiences, some of which have been with us since day dot, back in 1967.

The Women's Institute (WI)

Monthly meetings are held on 1st Thursday of every month  at 7.30 p.m. New members and visitors are welcome to join our monthly meetings. Short Mat Bowls are on Fridays at 1.30-4.00.

The WI was set up to educate women to enable them to provide an effective role in the community, to expand their horizons and to develop and pass on important skills. Farningham W.I. was formed in June 1918 and is still going strong! The original 35 members met in private houses, then the local school and in a room in `The Croft` before moving into the newly-built village hall in 1938.

WI Short Mat Bowls

We now have around 60 members, most of whom come from Farningham and the surrounding area. Our main monthly meetings are sociable  affairs,  usually  with invited speakers covering a wide range of topics.  The monthly luncheon club is very popular and the craft, bowls and darts groups meet regularly.

Recent social events have included a Fish and Chip Supper , Ten Pin Bowling, an Egg-sellent Easter Afternoon Tea and a Summer Soiree, with Pimms and strawberries. Check out our website for our annual programme and lots more!
