    Come and help Centrepoint volunteer Jackie Hall celebrate the launch of her new book Healthy, Quick, Delicious: Homemade Meals for Busy People. Jackie says, 'This is the book that will get you back into the kitchen, cooking simple food that is good for your body and soul.  The recipes use a limited number of ingredients, and are easy to follow.  This allows you to prepare healthy, fresh meals for yourself and your loved ones, while spending as little time as possible grocery shopping and in the kitchen.'

    Jackie Hall is a lifelong food enthusiast who was born in Maastricht, the Netherlands and now lives in Basel with her Swedish husband.  She has spent the past decades exploring ways to prepare healthy, simple, fresh food that is a joy to share.

    This event is free to attend, and is open to Centrepoint members and guests.  No booking is required, just drop in between 19:00 and 21:00.

    This Autumn's Artwall exhibition features the artwork of Pamela Gotangco.  Raised in the Philippines, and subsequently enabled to travel widely (Hong Kong, New York, Tokyo and Abu Dhabi) through her studies and work in the fields of communications, travel and technology, Gotangco weaves her varied experiences into her canvases in a wondrous way.  Akin to the sampling done by hip-hop artists, her mash-up turns stereotypes on their head and shows a humorous lack of respect for icons of culture and cultural norms.

    Join us and the artist herself at the Artwall vernissage on Friday, 15th September from 18:00 to 21:00.  The Artwall events are free and open to the public so it can be a great opportunity to bring a new friend to Centrepoint and enjoy a glass of wine and snacks together with others curious to know more about the art and what the artist has to say.

    The exhibition will be on view at Centrepoint during normal opening hours through to the end of November 2017.
