The concept of a Jelly started in New York in February 2006 when a group of friends realised they loved working from home but missed the creative brainstorming, sharing and camaraderie of being in a traditional office.

So, one day a week they started inviting friends round to work from their home – which gave them the best of both worlds.  They got the quietness that comes with working on your own mixed with one day a week working alongside new and interesting people – with their new and interesting ideas and conversations.

They made it a regular thing and the Jelly was born.

(apparently it was called “Jelly” as there were Jelly Beans at the first New York gathering!)


The St Albans Jellies

Everyone is welcome to our jellies. It’s FREE for all levels of TBC members and just £5 to non members.

We are always amazed at what goes on in terms of business collaborations at the Jellies – and the generosity of those people there who are happy to share their skills and expertise with whoever is attending.   There is absolutely no commitment involved in attending – just come and say hello.  Stay for a bit or stay for the whole hour, it’s up to you.


When and Where?

The Jelly is usually held on the 3rd Thursday of the month (but if something like Easter or half term gets in the way, we move it)  The Jellies are held online at present.
