Join Fellows and local people for a visit to Marmalade Lane, a cohousing development in North Cambridge

Marmalade Lane is a multigenerational community with shared facilities, designed to have a small footprint and to support sustainable living.

The RSA has long championed regenerative thinking and in 2018, published a report on coliving. In a time of climate breakdown, Marmalade Lane offers new ways of thinking about how we live and the homes we build. We will learn about the history of Marmalade Lane, how technology has been used to minimise energy use, and the practicalities of community living.

After the tour, we will mingle over tea and cake. One of the joys of the RSA is that Fellows come from all sorts of different backgrounds. This event is a friendly opportunity to meet other local people who may share your interests, alongside those who have very different areas of expertise!

Meeting point: the junction of Topper Street and Graham Road, opposite the parklet.

As with all RSA Fellowship events, this event is free and open to all, so do invite a friend along if you’d like.

Taking part in RSA in-person events  

We've been looking forward to finally being able to meet together in person, but of course recognise it is important for us to stay cautious and make the environment safe for everyone.   

We aim to have assurances from all venues that they will have basic COVID-safety processes in place. 

We’re asking all attendees of events to be respectful of personal space, to be mindful of others’ preferences in regard to social distancing and to respect those that are wearing face coverings. 

To participate in the event, you will need to register for a ticket so we can make sure we have an up-to-date list of those who plan on attending. This is for capacity purposes.   

We request that all attendees evaluate their own health and that of those they’re in close contact with. We encourage all attendees that are sick or showing symptoms of illness to stay home and to cancel your Eventbrite ticket if you are no longer able to join the event.   

Given the ever-changing nature of the pandemic, please always check your latest national Government guidance in addition to following our baseline guidance enclosed here. If guidelines do change, the event may be cancelled at short notice. 

If you have any questions, or to let us know of any access requirements or reasonable adjustments you require, please email: [email protected]
