Parents' Party with Jelly

The Melting Pot, 5 Rose Street, Edinburgh EH2 2PR | 0131 243 2626

Thursday 28 October, 9am - 9pm (any time - you don't have to stay 12 hours!)

Is your home office overrun by small children?  Escape the kids and come get your heads down for a few hours - and meet other people in the same boat.  TMP members Annabel Latto of Working for Parents and David Drysdale of Fathers Network Scotland will be around if you fancy a cup of tea and a chat about the joys of parenthood and working life.

Please book a free place and a bowl of jelly via Eventbrite




Edinburgh Jelly


***SEPTEMBER 2010 - #EdJellyTrail***

The #EdJellyTrail is the latest Jellyfied offering for the lovely mobile workers of Edinburgh!



There have been a few wonderful Jelly meet ups in Edinburgh at Melting Pot and Screenworks, but with apps such as Worksnug and Foursquare highlighting just how many mobile working spaces our city has to offer, we thought we'd go one step further!


The concept:

- 2 days

- 8 venues across the city

- Thursday 30th September and Friday 1st October

- We'll be in each spot at set times (with a big sign!) so you can come and go as you please.

- We're starting with a breakfast meet at The Melting Pot on Thursday morning and finishing with a Friday ping pong night at Screenworks (details to come later!)


Where do YOU want to go?

We've got time to visit 6 other cafes or coworking spaces on our trail - and we'd love you to decide where we should go!


They need to have a big enough space to hold a small group, be accessible and welcoming to all, have free wifi and preferably a few plug sockets! Fantastic coffee and scrummy baked goods are also a good sign!


...We'd like to support some local talent so try to avoid chains (but feel free to suggest them if they're close to your heart!).


Some places suggested so far include:


Leo's Beanery - Urban Angel - Beanscene - Eteaket - Moo - Treacle


Need inspiration?


Check out the list of mobile working spaces that local folks have already reviewed here or go on a little adventure of your own!


What's next?

We'll be posting more information about the trail at http://blog.ideaspot.co.uk, on twitter (#EdJellyTrail), on this lovely site and various other means!


If you have a suggestion for a venue, feel free to tweet about it using the hashtag or simply email Georgia at georgia [dot] artus [at]


Looking forward to seeing you there!



Previous Edinburgh Jelly Events: 


The Melting Pot hosted a great Jelly in May 2010 - thanks to everyone who came along.  We're planning another one for September 2010 - more details to follow. 


We held our first Jelly in December 2009. The next one will be held in May 2010. Those who came in December liked the idea of a short introduction once everyone has arrived. We'd also like some networking time and an open Q&A hour to ask questions to the crowd that we are stuck on. A full day of work together was also seen as a good thing. Everyone was also keen to hear about the next jelly via e-mail.
