Interest Groups

All our interest groups offer stimulating and enjoyable events, adding an important part and a more personal dimension to club life with the IWC. These groups not only provide an opportunity for you to meet new friends with shared interests, but often help you to further develop those interests and talents, or even discover a talent you didn’t know you had! In addition, if you have a skill, hobby or work experience that you would like to showcase and pass on, you are encouraged to start a new group. We are always open to any ideas that will enrich our club life and offer the multi-cultural diversity that is the essence of the IWC.
