Activity Groups

Centrepoint is home to a number of shared interest groups. These allow members to meet on a regular basis with like-minded people to pursue their current interests or take up new ones in a relaxed, social atmosphere. Most groups meet at Centrepoint. 

All groups are free to members. 

Current groups are:

Arts and Crafts

Creative Studio

Bring along your latest art project and materials (sorry, no oil painting permitted) to this informal art group. We share ideas and enthusiasm but also give you time to work on your own.

Hooks and Needles

Enjoy a good chat over a cup of tea or coffee while knitting, crocheting, cross stitching or quilting, etc (bring your own materials). We help one another, share tips and offer advice.

Men Modelling!

If you fancy a chat over a beer about life in general or men’s hobbies in particular, then come and join us. Now and again we also work on our current model!

Photography Group

An enthusiastic group of photographers who share techniques, conduct field trips and mount exhibitions.

Culture and Nature

Bird Watching

This birding group is led by an informed enthusiast who will share his knowledge of birds through the seasons. New and experienced birders welcome, including children. 

History Tours of Basel

Learn about important events in Basel history on these regular tours led by one of our lively and knowledgeable members.

My Place

A regular series in which Centrepoint members take turns presenting a talk on their home country. 


Bridge for Beginners

Wednesday Bridge Club 

If you have some bridge playing experience come along and join us to play this interesting game.

Western Mahjong 

If you are interested in the game of Mahjong please come and join us. All levels are welcome. We will gladly teach beginners the basics of this fascinating game.


Do you enjoy playing with words? Then join us for an evening spent poring over the Scrabble board and shunting letters around. No previous experience required, just a love of words.

Health and Wellness

Mindfulness and Meditation Group

No special equipment or clothes are required and all sessions will be seated on ordinary chairs. All you need to bring is an open and curious mind.  

Sunday Walkers

Join us as we go for a two-hour ramble through the Basel countryside. All walks are accessible by public transport.

Reading and Writing

Books in English

Every month we choose an English language book together to read and then discuss (no more than 300 pages long). The group is a mixture of regulars and those who have read the book before and just drop in. 

Spanish Book Club

We select and read six Spanish language books a year. Every two months we gather to discuss and share our points of view.

Thin Raft Writers

Bring your writing for review and constructive critique. Many of our members have published works including novels, children's books, poetry, non-fiction and short stories.
