Re: Parking and showers


Well, wash basins will have to do, but then it's also only two days, i'm sure it'll be alright :)

Troublesome parking will make it a bit interesting, but... well, i'm sure we'll manage, anyway :)


Parking and showers

Hi, parking might be tricky on Saturday but should be ok on Sunday. There are no showers, just toilets with wash basins.


Parking etc.


We're now getting a bit close, so here's two questions that weren't answered in the FAQ ;)

Where might one park near or at Qantm?

Are there shower or other cleaning facilities at the college?

Really looking forward to this thing! NGJ was a blast last year, and while i know this is smaller, i've still got very high hopes :)



49 jammers signed up, one space left! If you are signed up but discover that you can't come, please could you let me know. If you are listed after jammer #50, please email me and I will let you know if/when a space comes up. Cheers!



Hello, are there still spaces left? Thanks :D


Arrival time

Things are supposed to start at 5pm, in the lecture theatre on the 1st floor. You can arrive earlier if you like, and hang around in the cafe/lounge on the 4th floor, where you can watch Channel 5 daytime TV.

Thanks for the info, Jason. What time should we show up on the 28th?


3 weeks to go!

There isn't really a sign-up system. If you are registered here and have put down Qantm London as your "jam site" then that's fine - we are allowed up to 50 jammers, so we're not full up yet! Here are some more details:

FAQ: How do you pronounce it ?
“Quantum”. It's short for Queensland and Northern Territories Multimedia (the college was founded in Australia)

Where is it?
Qantm College, SAE House, 297 Kingsland Road, Hackney, London E8 4DD. Some buses go by: 242, 243, 149, 67. Haggerston station is 2 mins away.

When will the college be open ?
We plan to be open for the entire 48 hours.

Can I sleep over ?
Yes but it might not be very comfortable (unless you bring an air mattress).

Is there a secure storage area for my stuff ?
No, there isn't. Sorry about that. Obviously I can't promise anything but nothing went missing last year.

What facilities are available ?
We have a practical area with Macs and a small number of PCs, running Visual Studio, Maya, Photoshop, etc. But please bring your own laptop if you have one.

How about food and drink ?
There is a Tesco just over the road from us
..and also cafes and shops up and down Kingsland Road.

Hi Jason, looking forward to taking part again this year. Can I be signed up for the event?


Nifty :)

Hey there! i took part in the NGC in Copenhagen last year, and thought that since i have now moved to England, it'd make sense to take part in the local event here as well... So, i would greatly appreciate a signup for this one, please, Jason! :D


Well, the wait is nearly over
