Possible Stevenage / Hertfordshire Raspberry Jam!

Mon Jul 22, 2013 3:21 pm

Hi!

I am currently looking at setting up a Raspberry Jam in Stevenage after being inspired and recommended to at the recent Cambridge Raspberry Jam.

I have a few venues in mind but do you know any venues that would be able to host the jam for Free if possible or very cheap price, do you have any ideas for the theme of the Jam?

I'm currently looking at around October / November time for it to happen.

Perhaps talk to the local College or University. The University of Hertfordshire in Hatfield may be accommodating.

I also recall mention of a Stevenage LUG and they might have suggestions.

Yeah I'm going to email the college tomorrow, I don't think its that easy to get to the university from Stevenage not via a Car but will look into it.

I'll be interested. Might be worth trying schools, I know that Nobel do STEM activities outside school hours.

As posted earlier give Nobel a try new head starts in September and the school is generally up for exciting things - saw the Mars Rover there earlier in the year with my son (quite a few other dads in attendance! ) ICT leader seemed keen on stretching beyond the limits of the curriculum.

Well one possible venue is the Stevenage BTEC Centre. Only downside is that the venue will cost money so tickets would have a price on them. (No more than £5).

I plan to contact Nobel, NHC (Stevenage) and possibly other schools in Stevenage once they all resume.

I now have a possible venue in St Albans (the new Herts Hackspace) to host the jam at. I plan to visit within the next week to be able to see the size of the venue and how many people we could invite.

Looks like the jam is going ahead! Venue is likely going to be North Hertfordshire College. Date expected to be either the 26th of October or 23rd of November.
