An evening of meaningful connection through playful conversational games.

Bypass the bullsh*t and get back to being humans together. At a Connection Jam, we make space for genuine conversation, playful communication, and real appreciation.

Through a series of facilitated interactions designed to foster instant connection and authentic sharing, you will be encouraged to drop in deeper than the usual patterns of small talk and surface level chat to reveal your more-true self – and be welcomed, exactly as you are.

At Connection Jam, we don’t prescribe what sort of relationships you might create. Friends? Lovers? Bandmates? Business partners? A new running / cinema / boardgame / crochet buddy? It’s all possible! The question is: what sort of connection do you want to make?

This is a safe(r) and brave space that is open to all, regardless of gender, sexuality, relationship status, etc etc. Everything is optional, and you will be empowered in your choice to take part!

What to Expect

  • Opening and closing circles
  • Actually good icebreakers
  • Authentic relating games
  • Dancing and movement
  • A yummy selection of teas
  • …and biscuits (obviously!)

Important! Please arrive on time.

We open doors at 7pm and hold the opening circle at 7.15pm. We require that everyone is in the space at this time as this sets our container for the event. Here, guidelines and confidentiality is shared – and so you will not be admitted after this. Please arrive in good time for the start of the Connection Jam.


Usually, photography at the event is not a thing as we want you to be present. However, as this is our first event, and we will have a photographer in the space to take photos for promotional purposes. There will be a clear opportunity to opt out of photos!
