Regular Activities

Centrepoint is home to a number of shared interest groups. These allow you to meet and pursue your interests on a regular basis in a relaxed, social atmosphere. 

All groups are free to members.


Current groups are:

Basel Writers

The group provides encouragement and structure for creative writing based on Susan Tiberghien's book, One Year to a Writing Life, Twelve Lessons to Deepen Every Writer's Art and Craft.

Bridge Club

We now have three bridge groups, ranging from beginners to experienced. 

Books in English

Every month we read and discuss a work of fiction published in English. The group includes both native English speakers and members for whom it is a second language.

German Advanced: Short Stories, Reading & Discussion

Is this a language group or a shared interest group? You decide! Read a German text with a group, followed by a discussion. Led by Pierre Brunner.

Hooks & Needles

This is a fun and informative hobby session. You will need to bring your own materials and a little idea of what you might like to make, or a project you are already working on. Share tips, ask questions, enjoy the company.

Monday Meditation 

Every week we meet for a one-hour mindfulness session under the guidance of two qualified meditation instructors.

Men Modelling

Another fun and informative hobby session: in addition to building a model we also spend the evening swapping ideas over a drink. Women Modellers are also welcome!

Spanish Reading Group

A spin-off from the Spanish language group, this reading group aims to read 6 Spanish books a year, meeting for discussion about every 2 months.

Sunday Walkers

Every month we choose a new destination within easy reach of Basel and walk for a couple of hours.

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.

Western Mahjong for Beginners

An introduction to an ancient and absorbing Chinese tradition.

Photography Group

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

Art Walks


Led by an artist, this group visits Basel museums to see and discuss works by individual artists.

My Place


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

Creative Studio
