Event description

Description

Fun and friendly evening to enjoy mathematical games, puzzles, card tricks, constructions (usually out of paper), and multifarious activities with a numerical or mathematical basis.

It's great entertainment - and there's a pub quiz at 21:00 that those interested may peel off and join. Others may instead remain with the MathsJam and continue the games, puzzles, constructions, etc.

The pub's landlord, Jim, kindly cooks us hot food, which costs £5 a plate amd that we serve ourselves from a large tray near the start pf the evening. It's usually either Beef Chili and rice or a Vegetaran option. The organiser, Caroline, collects everyone's £5s to pay to Jim later in the evening. Everyone who has eaten here has been highly complimentary about the food: "very tasty" and "quite fiery" are two quotes from those who at at 2017's MathsJams!

RSVP to tell the organiser if you plan to eat, and which meal option, so that the landlord can be advised and plan the quantitiy of food to prepare!

LOCATION The pub is an easy short walk from Watford Junction Station, although one has to cross St. Albans Road to get to it, and there is free street parking in adjacent roads, Malden Road and Essex Road, which are a distance away, and in West Street, the nearest road but rather small and so it frequently has no empty spaces.

FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

18 and over. please, because this happens in a pub.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Watford Juntion Rail and its bus station is an easy walk away. Exit right and walk up the road to a major cross roads and then look on the opposite side to your left. Buses also pass close by on St Albans Road.
There is easy and free parking very close by too in Malden Street and adjacent roads (after 18:30).

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?
