Rainbow Women's Social Night

Come and join Ellie at the Auckland Women’s Centre for an evening of good ole homely fun. We alternate this monthly event between DVDs and board games and aim to provide a relaxed atmosphere, a place to chill, unwind and socialise. There’s no charge, just rock on up, we’d love to see you, especially if you haven’t been before. Bring your dinner if you would like to.

When: Last Wednesday of every month, 7pm onwards

Where: Auckland Women's Centre, 4 Warnock St, Grey Lynn
Cost: Free
