Jam Britannia, a fixture on the freestyle Frisbee calendar. I like the sound of that! For this we have the love and energy of the global Jamily to thank for.


The J.B.O.C. worked hard this year to create, innovate and shape great off-field amusement in between hot tournament action and It was wonderful to see ideas hatched in meetings, take wing and fly at this year’s Jammy B.


Despite jet lag, coughs and sneezes threatening to hinder the production of Hein, jammers delivered a scintillating array of routines. You’ll never want to say arrivederci to the superb boys from Roma. The ever adaptable hat division proved more fun than anticipated – even with mystery jammers!!! And the grace, beauty and carefully considered routines delivered in mixed, provided a real shine to proceedings.


Our Friday night soiree featured Le Grand’s ingenious plastic creations, a heartfelt rendition of ‘Folsom Prison’ that had lags at nearby Wormwood Scrubs prison sharpening their shanks in appreciation and Jammy B’s own Jean Noel who inspired performances from the Jamily and beyond. Saturday night wasn’t too shabby either.
Many thanks to the far and wide Global Jamily for travelling to London for Jam Britannia we couldn’t have done it without you. Let’s do it all again next year at Jammy B III.
