Jam Site Description: 

Hi there!

We invite you to come and come and simply have fun making something playful with us in Devonport House - right next door to the beautiful Old Royal Naval College (a UNESCO World Heritage site), and surrounded by lots of great places to eat by the Cutty Sark.

All levels, (non-)abilities and (non-)skillsets welcome. It's possible for everyone to find a place in a team (or teams) somewhere! If you haven't come in a group already and aren't sure what to do, then let us know and we'll do our best to help you.

This is an inclusive site. All people welcome - experienced/inexperienced, enthusiast/industry, students/alumni/public, seasoned/first-time jammer, first game or 100th game, digital or analogue (board/card games etc.).


We will be NOT be running 24 hours at this site.

This is because we believe that you can still make a great game, have a good time, all whilst taking breaks and looking after yourself properly.

At 9pm on Friday and Saturday, we will close the site and STRONGLY encourage you to have some down time with your fellow jammers at one of the many wonderful local pubs/cafes/restaurants in the local area, or simply go home and rest for the next day. DOWN TOOLS AND TAKE A BREAK.

Be focused, take breaks, prioritise self-care. Have fun.
