Fabric is fighting back. The legendary London nightclub is going to appeal Islington Council's decision to revoke its licence.
The news was announced this afternoon by the Night Time Industries Association, which is backing the appeal. NTIA's deputy chair Alexander Proud called the current situation a 'critical moment' for UK clubbing.
'Fabric is one of the greatest clubs in the world and I don't want to see it close on my watch,' Proud told Mixmag, adding: 'I want my kids to go to a brilliant club that's internationally famous and is on their doorstop... If only all clubs were run that well, by people who are passionate and caring and love their customers. I don't want my kids to not be able to go to clubs like that.'
Proud also revealed that he will call on NTIA members to donate funds to help with the club's legal fees and 'keep Fabric going until the appeal.'
Fabric's licence was revoked by Islington council following the deaths of two teenagers earlier this year. Since the decision to permanently close the club was announced in the early hours of Wednesday morning, floral tributes and handwritten notes have been left outside Fabric's building in Farringdon.
