Help The Reading Rooms Survive Dundee Gentrification

This petition had 7,001 supporters

The Reading Rooms Dundee has been at the forefront of British club culture for over 17 years, and throughout that time, it has been run completely independently by two local brothers. The Reading Rooms has brought international artists and DJ's to Dundee, as well as providing a space for local artists, DJ's, promoters & designers, capturing the zeitgeist and securing Dundee as a great destination for clubbers all over the country...for seventeen years! Now the area is being 'gentrified' with a new hotel across the road and the V&A up and running, Dundee City Council along with Police Scotland are putting extreme pressure on the 'Rooms, with a heavy police presence every weekend and ridiculous accusations (DJ's changing the music when undercover cops are in?!). We at the Reading Rooms believe that this is all a ploy to get us shut down, as we are in the firing-line for the regeneration of Dundee. Please sign this petition to help!
