Here's an extra-special invitation to all new arrivals, new ex-pats in Lucerne, from the almost Swiss expats who have been here for years and years, to our annual Christmas extravaganza, kicking off the Christmas season with a bang and helping a charity at the same time! All proceeds to go to a local charity and the Queen Elizabeth Foundation in memory of our beloved Ex-pat friend Tom Lamb! Details from last year’s charities will also be announced on 7th December! We've decided to change venues due to space restraints at the golf club, so we'll be having it at the FCL stadium in the business lounge!
How do you get there?? Bus 20 (10mins) or the train (3mins) to Allmend/Messe. Come to the stadium - first door (when looking at the front - to the left)
See the restaurant? Turn there towards the stadium.
Should be the door closest to with a number big ol number 1 on it!
You'll see the sign.
See you soon!!!!:30: Apero (1 prosecco, wine or beer per person)

For the upcoming event, we’ve been instructed to stick to one area on the Terraces for smoking and please make sure that all cigarette butts are place in ashtrays provided.
