The after-work group caters for those who have day jobs and are looking to participate in a wide range of after-work activities. Activities that we have organised in the past include chocolate making, guided city walks, taking a tour of the opera house, a visit to the wine boats, seeing a light show and going to the theatre or an art gallery, amongst others. These activities are often followed by a meal or drinks.
The structure of the group is driven by specific events, which all group members can suggest ideas for rather than scheduled monthly meetings. Each event is organised by the individual who has proposed it, as the chairpersons of this group serve above all as a point of contact for new members. This flexibility allows members to attend events according to their own work schedule and personal interest. Events usually start between 17.00 and 19.00. If you would like to get to know us, please contact one of the following chairpersons:
Lisa Prach (Chairperson )
English Book Club Goldcoast
Our members take turns to choose books and host meetings, on the Gold Coast (east side of Lake Zürich), usually on the first Wednesday evening of the month. Our discussions are lively and entertaining and are accompanied by drinks and light food.

Saturday Wine and Dine
Enjoy a Saturday night out with other ZIWA members! Partners are welcome. We usually meet every other month in a restaurant in or around Zürich and love to try out cuisines from around the world.

Sue McDonald (Co-chairperson)
Do you like to drink a glass or two of wine from time to time? So do we in the Wine Lovers Group. Some of us are experts, some absolute novices, but we all love sharing our knowledge, discovering new wines, grapes, vintages and techniques.
We meet about six times a year, weekdays and weekends, days and evenings, sometimes with partners.
Christine Gilbert (Chairperson), Tel: 078 709 47 14
Moviegoers in the evening
Once a month we go to the cinema in the evening. The films we watch are shown in the original language (with German and French subtitles). Afterwards we go for a meal or a drink, but you’re not obliged to stay on if you don't have the time!
Chip Efthymiades (Chairperson)
We love to get together at special events to celebrate our friendships. We have our annual “Kickoff” to get the ZIWA year started, a winter holiday celebration, an event to celebrate a country or region and so much more. Our events take place during the day and evening too. All information will be available on the website.
