About WPS

The Society provides a social context for members and friends by arranging stimulating and inspiring meetings and discussions in Wimbledon in a spirit of intellectual and philosophical curiosity, open mindedness and friendship.

We hold four or five main meetings per annum and usually a summer garden party. In 2019, we held the WPS Garden Party at Southside House in Wimbledon with poetry readings attended by around forty members and friends.

Courtesy of the Trustees of Southside House (www.southsidehouse.com) in Wimbledon, we have had an arrangement for some time to hold some of our meetings there which provides a wonderful context both in Summer and Winter. Sadly Southside House is now closed to the public and we now use a range of local venues such as the Wimbledon Village Hall and Wimbledon Library Arts Space.

WPS is pleased to announce that we have appointed a new Chairman, Mr. Edward Nanno (read Ed’s bio attached).


Membership fees are modest and designed to ensure the Society is securely funded but do not restrict membership.

To find out more about becoming a member please contact the Membership Secretary (info@wimphilsoc.org.uk) or download an application form.
