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 event.

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.​​​​​
