Kia Ora / Welcome

The New Zealand Women’s Association welcomes all women with a strong New Zealand connection: you may have been born there, have family there or have worked there and you are now back living in the United Kingdom. Joining the NZWA is a great way to make new friends and enjoy the company of like-minded women while keeping the link with New Zealand.

A diverse schedule of events is organised each year including lunches and visits. Lunches, with a guest speaker, New Zealand wines and excellent food, are held regularly in the Penthouse of New Zealand House in the Haymarket, where the views over London are truly spectacular.A selection of group tours to some of London’s magnificent buildings, gardens or exhibitions and an annual outing, for example, to Highgrove or Bletchley Park, also form part of our busy programme.

The Christmas lunch is a special date on the programme with carols and a raffle, the proceeds of which go to a New Zealand-based charity.

In September we have the opportunity to share the Penthouse views with family and friends at our evening Drinks Party when we are able to relax and enjoy our excellent home-made canapés with a glass of wine.

A recent and very successful addition to the list of events has been an annual trip to Europe where we have enjoyed beautiful places such as Monet’s Garden in Rouen, The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, the historic WW1 sites of Tyne Cot and Passchendaele, and Barcelona.

Additional optional activities are on offer via other New Zealand community groups as well as our sister organisations

The NZWA has something to offer all women, so why not contact us and come to one of our events. You will always be welcome.
