We have meetings each month unless we have some event taking place, in which case that will replace the meeting.

We meet at the centrally located Friends Meeting House, Ship Street, Brighton.  Our meetings are held at 6.00pm and last for 2 hours and currently we hold them on Tuesdays.

If you want to contact our branch the secretary is Jenny Engledow.  Telephone 01273 239301  E-mail jenny@11qp.co.uk

We have several events throughout the year, some to to mark particular days, such as International Women’s Day or Hiroshima Day. We respond to current events and maybe have a vigil or are part of a demonstration in the town. Some of us take part in national demonstrations that relate to our campaigns, such as the recent ‘Wool Against Weapons’ campaign. We have 2 fundraising events each year, one in the summer and one in the winter. We have been very active this year (2014) presenting alternative views to the outbreak of WW1.We often work with other like-minded groups, for example, Amnesty International or the Gatwick Detainee Support Group etc, where we have been re-creating Picasso’s Guernica painting, in cloth with some updated images. It has been taken on demonstrations, and will be displayed at the Jubilee library from the 2 March until the 9 March 2015 when we have our WILPF exhibition to celebrate our 100th anniversary.
