What we're about

Welly Women is for women of all ages who want to explore all that the Wellington region has to offer, whether you've been here for twenty minutes or twenty years! Meet new people, discover new hobbies, and check out new events with us.

While the group is primarily meant for women, we do sometimes team up with other meetup groups that include men, but this will be explicitly stated on the meetup event page. Suggestions are more than welcome; we're keen to get together for anything from coffee to cinema, so please let us know if there's something you are interested in and we'll post it up.

Pub Quiz at the Old Bailey

The Old Bailey

Come and have some fun at The Old Bailey's quiz night. You don't have to be clever or all-knowing, just happy to join in the fun. Although you'll be surprised at what you do know and, although there are bar tabs to be won, we go along for the fun of it. If we are not placed our favourite position is 'not last!' If we come second to last we win a gnome. The quiz starts at 6.30pm so we'll meet by 6pm so we can get settled with drinks and/or food before the quiz starts. Then we put our mobile phones away till the quiz is over (so it is clear we are not cheating) and enjoy the fun. 'The Pen Principle': There are 8 rounds and everyone gets a turn at writing the answers for a round. We can all suggest answers but the person with the pen makes the decision on what to put for our answer. We've found this works well as sometimes people don't speak up and are not heard until they say "but I said that!" Note: We've been quizzing for some time and have a couple of men who are regulars on our team., They'll be coming as 'plus 1's of the hosts. If anyone attending has a male partner or friend who'd like to come too, feel free to add them as your plus 1. A note abaout the waitlist: You may wonder why we don't have a second team for the people on the waitlist. We've tried it and it doesn't work. For a second team we need to book a second table. This is not always possible as The Old Bailey's quiz night is very popular. When we have booked a second table for a second team we had so many no-shows that we barely made up one team. The Bailey staff were not happy as they had turned people away because they were holding that second table for us. We've been quizzing there for many years and have a good relationship with them. We don't want that to change.
