Help save the George Tavern on Commercial Road

Danielle Goldstein

In the ongoing battle to save our favourite bits of London, we're now rooting for the The George Tavern in Shadwell to triumph in their fight against developers. Eight years ago the grand old pub was informed that Stepney's Nightclub next door would be demolished to make way for six luxury flats, which means The George would inevitably lose its live music and late (ie. fun) license. They've been fighting the decision ever since by hosting fundraisers to cover their legal costs, but now they need your help. 

The 600-year-old boozer has launched a crowd funding campaign so they can continue their crusade, offering everything from shout outs and t-shirts to signed memorabilia in exchange for your donations. And if you send them a snap of yourself wearing your 'Save The George Tavern' tee, they'll add you to their gallery alongside the likes of Kate Moss, Sir Ian McKellen and Georgia May Jagger.
