If your brain hasn’t melted during this week’s heatwave, you might remember us telling you that London clubbing institution Fabric is in peril. Now it’s time to fight for your right to party. After two drug-related deaths this summer, Fabric has closed its doors indefinitely while Islington council reviews its licence. In the meantime, Jacob Husley (who runs Fabric’s weekly WetYourSelf party) has started a petition aimed at keeping the club open.
Addressed to the local council as well as Sadiq Khan, by the time we went to print the petition had been signed by nearly 40,000 people and backed by DJs, record labels and broadcasters. Even though the Mayor doesn’t have any influence on the council’s decision, a massive show of public support could make a real difference to Islington’s licensing deliberations. So if you want to strike a blow against the slow death of London nightlife, add your name and keep the city raving.
Sign the petition to stop the closure of Fabric.
