    Further to the new COVID-19 guidelines issued by the Swiss Federal Government on 18th October and the continued rise in COVID cases, Centrepoint has regrettably taken the decision to CANCEL the Members Apéro on 19th November and the Vernissage: Artwall Paper Market on 27th November.

    This decision is guided by the knowledge that the risk of COVID-19 increases as people mingle, walk around and socialise. Further guidelines for members and guests at Centrepoint will be issued in due course.

    We hope to resume the Apéro in December.

    Thank you for your understanding. Our aim is to keep our members as safe as possible.
