Third update, February 2021:

  • As many of you will have guessed, the continuing lockdown still prevents us from holding any face-to-face meetings.

    Of course, your membership will be extended, as 2020 was so disrupted!

  • The city council will give up the Brücke building at Kasernenstraße and move to Mecumstraße 10 (the former red brick Barmer building in Bilk between the Düssel and Auf’m Hennekamp), where we hope to be able to offer an autumn programme.

    In fact, we were told in the last few days that we have to clear everything out of the Brücke during March, earlier than was originally expected. This means that, sadly, there will be no more meetings in the spring.

    The new building is not far from the bus stop Feuerbachstraße of buses 780, 782 and 785, which go from Heinrich-Heine-Allee towards Erkrath, Solingen or Langenfeld, and 350 metres’ walk (5 minutes) along Fruchtstraße from the tram stop Karolingerplatz. From the main railway station, the tram 704 comes to Karolingerplatz.

  • We hope you have all kept well during this extraordinary time, and look forward to seeing you again before too long!

Please stay tuned and check here for new information.
