Xenia welcomes women from all backgrounds to come together for intercultural activities that support English language learning and social integration. 

The themes of our weekly workshops range from women’s rights to employment, recipe sharing, theatre workshops, and nature education. 

We run workshops every Saturday from 10am – 1pm at Hackney Museum and all women and children are welcome. 

Childcare is provided at every workshop so that all women have the same opportunity to participate and travel expenses can be covered for those who need it. 

Our workshops are a great opportunity to practice speaking and listening in English with native speakers, but are not formal English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) classes. If you are looking for local ESOL classes, please check your local borough’s website. 

Register for a future workshop on our eventbrite page or just come along any Saturday. 

“I first came to Xenia because I’d lived abroad and always really appreciated the people who took time to help me practice speaking in a foreign language, so I wanted to give something back.

I really like that part of Xenia, but I’ve found that most of all I love getting to know amazing women from all over the world, who I probably wouldn’t meet day to day, and becoming friends.”
