Stop Hackney Council Licensing laws closing Dance Tunnel

This petition had 5,393 supporters

Hackney Council's licensing laws are forcing vital underground music venue Dance Tunnel to close. 

This closure is yet another hammer blow to London's list of dwindling small venues. Small venues are the incubators now of the scenes that will fill the vast concert halls of the future.

I am calling on all fans of London's vibrant creative communities to make their voice heard to Hackney Council. We ask that the council:

  • re-review the legislation imposed on Dance Tunnel.
  • consider the long term positive creative, cultural and economic value of London's nightlife in any judgement.
  • work with Dance Tunnel to find a workable, economically viable solution that balances the needs of the immediate local residents with the wider cultural value creative hubs bring to the borough.
