Fabric Nightclub To Close?

Fabric, the famous nightclub on Charterhouse Street in Farringdon, faces closure due to a series of drug-related deaths in the past few months.

An Islington Council licensing committee meets tonight to decide whether the venue should have its license revoked, forcing it to close.

Following a reported eight drug-related incidents in the last three years — including four deaths — police called for a review of the venue's licence. Further details of the Licence Review Application, including letters in favour of, and against, the closure of the venue, can be seen here.

Having said this, Fabric's website currently has events at the venue listed until April next year, and there are suggestions that tonight's meeting could result in heightened security measures being imposed on the venue, rather than it closing completely.

A Facebook group was today set up to save Fabric, with nearly 3,000 likes at time of writing. A change.org petition titled Renew Fabric's license, also inaugurated today, has received over 200 signatures.
