Who can come?

Anyone. There’s no lower or upper age limit, and no prior knowledge is required. Jams regularly get under 8s and over 60s attending.

Do I need to know any programming?

No. If you want to learn to code, we can help.

Do I need any equipment?

No. We will provide Raspberry Pi setups and accessories. Feel free to bring your own too.

Can I buy a Raspberry Pi from you on the day?

We will not have anything available to buy on the day, but we can recommend distributors. Also see the links page.

Can I drop my kids off and pick them up at the end?

No. Children under 16 must be supervised at all times. Adults supervising children must order a ticket.

How do I get there?

Raspberry Pi’s offices are on the first floor at 30 Station Road. This is 2 minutes’ walk from Cambridge station. The front door will have a Raspberry Jam sign and there will be someone at the entrance to check you in.

Is parking available?

No public parking is available at the venue. There are various on-street and multi-story car parking options nearby, or you could use the park & ride. Cycle parking is available at the rear of the building.

If you’re volunteering or bringing something for show-and-tell, please email me to ask about parking. Limited parking spaces are available for those helping out at the event.

I can’t get there for the 11am start. Is that ok?

That’s fine. You can come and leave as you please.

Will there be photography?

We usually take photos during the event, which we may use to promote the Jam and use in other promotional materials. If you would like to opt out, please let the event organiser know.

I ordered a ticket but now I can’t make it. What do I do?

If you go in to your eventbrite account and view your order, you can cancel it to allow someone else to take your place.

The event tickets are sold out. Can I come anyway?

If the event is sold out, we will be at capacity and will not be able to admit people without a ticket.

Are there more events like this?

We run this Jam regularly, and there are other Jams which run all over the UK and beyond. See a map of events at www.raspberrypi.org/jam
