J Day was postponed then cancelled in 2020 due to Covid. This year we ask everyone to act responsibly and safely, by:

  • not sharing joints or pipes;
  • maintaining physical distance;
  • scanning the Covid QR code on entering the venue;
  • staying home if unwell, symptomatic, or told to isolate.
