With reluctance we have decided that
MathsJam 2021 will not happen in-person

Plans are currently underway for an on-line event,
with support for those who might choose to have
local gatherings.

Date: the weekend of November 20/21.

This entire website is yet to be revised ... all the content is subject to change.

This site is still undergoing
revision to recover from the
rather rushed changes needed
for the virtual event. Your
patience is appreciated.

MathsJam 2020 is going virtual !!

The MathsJam Annual Gathering returns in 2020 on the weekend of November 21th and 22nd. As always there will be talks, fun, games, puzzles, and conversation. But this time we can't meet in person, so we need to have some other space to gather.

That's being planned now, and this page will be brought up to date as and when we have more information. The current schedule is shown on the right.


Full delegate price is 25 pounds, with a discount for the unwaged. There are bursaries available, please send mailto:MathsJam@solipsys.co.uk for more details.

Who will be there?

MathsJams are a chance for anyone to join the fun. We have people from a wide range of ages, backgrounds, education, and ability. All you need is an interest in and enthusiasm for maths of all types.

A note from Colin Wright

The Annual MathsJam Gathering is effectively a private party being organised by me (with help from people who are amazingly generous with their time). I promise I'll treat you fairly, and ask that you do the same. I promise that if you send me money then either the event will run and you'll have a place, or I'll give you your money back.

If you pay and then cancel, I will refund your money if you give me a sensible amount of notice. In short, I will do my best to treat you fairly.

If you don't trust me, don't send me your money!
