Cancellation of Just Jam
City of London Police understands the disappointment that
people will have over the late cancellation of the proposed Just Jam event on 1st
March but the force raised concerns regarding the management of the proposed
Officers expressed concerns based on a number of factors
that could compromise the safety of people who planned to attend.
These included the fact that alcohol would be on sale at an
event which would be allowing entry to anyone aged 16 or over.
Additionally, there were worries about the lack of adequate
measures in place to address potential issues that might arise, including
overcrowding if more people decided to attend than the venue could cater for.
Ultimately, after consultation the decision to cancel the
event was taken by the Barbican as the venue.
