An official petition has been launched to show support to London nightclub fabric, which currently faces closure following the drug-related deaths of two 18-year-olds at the venue in the past two months.
Fabric's licence has currently been suspended for 28 days, but could be permanently removed following a review by Islington Council.
The petition to save the club was set up by resident DJ and promoter, Jacob Husley, who enthuses the importance of the community and culture built around the institution, citing the wonderful story of two Polish pensioners who visited fabric earlier this year as a perfect example.
Last week, Mayor of London Sadiq Khan tweeted on the issue, urging fabric, the local council and Metropolitan Police to work together to find a positive resolution.
Now almost two decades old, fabic is a crucial part of not just London's club culture, but the global dance music scene. Bringing in artists and music lovers from all over the world every weekend, with a particular dedication towards the underground scene, it would be a tragedy to lose, and could set a worrying precedent for shutting down clubs in a city already ravaged by venue closures.
At the time of writing over 40,000 people have signed the petition to save fabric, but more signatures are always needed. Whether you're an avid fabric-goer, an occasional visitor or even if you've never been at all, for the love of music, we implore you to sign this petition.
Once you've signed, don't forget to spread the word on social media, share the petition and #SaveFabric!
