The crowdfunding campaign to save Fabric has raised more than £210,000


It's been more than two weeks since Fabric had its licence revoked by Islington Council, but people aren't taking the news lying down. A petition against the closure has received more than 150,000 signatures, and the club owners have launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise funds to help fight back. The club's supporters have collectively donated more than £210,000, and the owners plan to use the money to go towards legal fees as they appeal the decision in court.

Writing on the crowdfunding campaign, the owners said: 'It will be an expensive battle and we need you to stand with us and contribute to the campaign fund to help retain a small Fabric team, the venue in hibernation and to prepare a legal battle to re-open and stop this police oppression. The last time we took the police on in court, we won'. Sounds like fighting talk.
