Barnstaple Jelly: coworking for homeworkers, Boston Tea Party, 25 January 2011
Tuesday, January 25, 2011 from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM (GMT)
Barnstaple, United Kingdom
Welcome to the news that there will be Jelly for homeworkers, freelancers & digital nomads running in Barnstaple on Tuesday 25th January at Boston Tea Party.
Jelly is a grassroots movement that has been spreading across the UK as a new way of working – and now it’s reached Devon!
If you’re a homebased freelancer, digital nomad or small business, it’d be great if you could join us! Please sign up if you intend to drop by as it will help us have an idea of numbers – just register your ticket above.
Jelly is a FREE informal casual work event for homebased & mobile workers to come together to work, socialise and exchange ideas. Come & join us, just turn up with some work and/or a laptop & join in. See more about Jelly here: http://www.workatjelly.com/
You can also find out about and give your opinions on the plans that Devon County Council have for workhubs in the county.
Working from home or on the road is great, but can be isolating. Jelly gives you an opportunity to exchange your own four walls for a different working environment, gives you company for the day and allows you to ask advice and exchange ideas with others. There’s a good description here of the benefits of Jelly, courtesy of Jan Minihane who runs Shropshire Jelly: http://bit.ly/9zL25g
This Jelly is taking place upstairs in the fantastic Boston Tea Party (directions). With freshly roasted coffee, a good selection of teas, milkshakes & smoothies and other delicious treats all on offer, it'll be well worth swopping your home office for working here!
can take place anywhere – this one’s in a coffee shop! It is also
very well suited to purpose-built workspaces with internet access and
multiple, well-placed powerpoints. It is a good introduction to coworking – the idea of coming together in a shared space to work on your own projects with the benefit of meeting others.

You can chat, enjoy the company of interesting new people, exchange ideas etc. - or get down to some actual work ;-). There's no enforced chat or embarrassing ice-breakers and definitely no sales pitches! If you do want to bring headphones and work in your own little world, that's fine too. Of course, most people attend because they miss that bit of office interaction when working at home alone.
How do I join?
You can just turn up and drop in at any point during the event which runs from 10:00am - 4:00pm. Stay as long as is useful and, as it is a work environment, you are welcome to take phone calls. If you can book a place above, it will help us know what numbers to expect.
If you can't make this date, but are interested in the concept, please add your details in the relevant ticketing section above and we'll add you to the email list. We are hoping to hold another 2 Jelly coworking events in Barnstaple before the end of March.
2nd Barnstaple jelly date fixed for 10am - 4pm, Monday 14th February, Coffee Republic. Book here.
