Fancy doing some Raspberry Pi stuff in a relaxed, social atmosphere? Fancy having a nice meal in a nice family pub? Fancy a chat with fellow geeky-type people? Then the “Potton Pi & Pints Raspberry Jam Doughnut” is for you.

This is a strictly informal event from the same team that brings you the Cambridge Raspberry Jam.

You can read about the first Potton Pi & Pints here – we had a great time!

We’re not planning any talks or anything else, this will be a purely bring-stuff-along-and-hack-it type thing.

The event is being held in Potton, a small town on the Bedfordshire/Cambridgeshire border, at The Rising Sun, a family-friendly, dog-friendly pub. The Rising Sun is a CAMRA-accredited local pub that regularly has 7 real ales, real cider and all the usual beverages. Food is available all day and is of the pub-grub variety: generously-portioned and reasonably priced. You can read more about The Rising Sun on their website.

We’ve arranged to use the upstairs function room (part of which is pictured below) which has tables and chairs and plenty of space for your projects or just for talking if that’s all you want to do.

This event will be a real social for Pi enthusiasts and we’re hoping it will be nice and relaxed with none of the stress and frantic nature of the usual CamJam. Kick back, unwind and do stuff with your Pi.

We’ll be supplying a few Raspberry Pis, monitors, keyboards, mice, cables and power sockets so all you have to do is come along. But please feel free to bring your own Pi, your SD card and whatever other electronic wizardry/gadgetry you happen to have.

We’ll have some of our worksheets available, including Minecraft Pi Edition, so there’ll be some activities for kids available.

At the end of the Jam (6-7pm-ish), we’ll be packing up and re-arranging the room so that we can order food and eat/drink/talk to our hearts’ content.

Any questions can, as usual, be addressed to Tim Richardson ( and Michael Horne (
