Upcoming events from Cambridge Raspberry Jam – January, March and April

Hi everyone,

I just thought I’d bring to your attention three events from Cambridge Raspberry Jam that are coming up in the next few months.

The first is, in fact, a CamJam – a full Jam including workshops, a Marketplace, talks & Show and Tell. It takes place on Saturday, 27th January at Impington Village College (which is just North of Cambridge itself, just off the A14). The event is completely free and you can pick up free tickets from Eventbrite.

The second event is Potton Pi & Pints – a smaller, more social (but entirely Family Friendly!) Jam which takes place upstairs at our local pub (The Rising Sun) in Potton, Bedfordshire. The date for this one is Saturday, 3rd March and is part of the Raspberry Pi Big Birthday Weekend in which Jams from all over the world are holding their events over the same weekend. In our case, we’re holding our Jam in the afternoon so that people can attend the Milton Keynes Raspberry Jam in the morning and then shoot over to ours in the afternoon. Tickets for Potton Pi & Pints have only just been made available. They’re free and they’re available from Eventbrite. We had a great time at our Christmas event, and we always look forward to this one!

Last, but not by any means least, we have our third event, Pi Wars. This is the fourth time we’ve run this highly successful event. Over 70 teams (some of them from as far afield as Hong Kong, Turkey and the USA) compete over the weekend of 21st-22nd April on our seven fiendish challenge courses. We invite as many people as possible to attend the event, which is taking place at the prestigious Cambridge Computer Laboratory, to spectate and enjoy the competitive, yet very friendly atmosphere. There’s plenty to see and there’s even a Sponsors’ Marketplace to pick up Pi-related goodies. More information about the event can be found on the Pi Wars website and you can book your tickets here. Tickets are free for under-18s and just £5 per day for adults (£7 for the whole weekend). Here’s a video of last year’s competition from the perspective of one of the teams:
