While we all wait to see how Fabric responds to Islington Council's decision to revoke their licence, there's no doubting the strength of public emotion. On what other day could Taylor Swift’s split with Tom Hiddleston get pushed aside for this overwhelming display of public mourning?
People have already started planning protests against the closure. Hackney music venue Passing Clouds has organised a march through Dalston to save it from closure and protest against the state of London’s nightlife ending with a rally in Gillett Square. Rapper Dizraeli is already confirmed to headline the packed programme of musicians and speakers.
A new Facebook page 'Protest Against Fabric's Closure' has popped up in the last few hours. The people behind it tell us they plan to organise a protest event so one to keep an eye on.
