Printworks is one of the UK's most prestigious nightclubs hosting DJs and musicians from all over the world. The club is an essential part of creative youth culture not just in London, but also the UK. The nightclub ranked number 7 In DJ Mag's top 100 clubs worldwide in 2021. To lose this beloved venue would be heartbreaking.

Reports have revealed London has lost almost a quarter of its nightclubs since the pandemic started. There are 198 venues operating as nightclubs in the capital, the fewest since the mid 90s, according to figures from the Night Time Industries Association (NTIA). That is a fall of 22 per cent from 256 in 2019, before Covid struck. Industry bosses fear London risks losing its reputation as one of the world’s premier clubbing capitals.

London, especially Canary Wharf, and the surrounding areas have the highest number of office real estate anywhere in the UK. During a time where more people are working from home than ever before the last thing that is needed is more office space. A global survey conducted by the World Economic forum which consisted of 12,500 people across 29 countries found that 2 in every 3 people want access to flexible working. Printworks offers a vibrant and beloved creative space for many of the city's music lovers to express themselves without fear of judgement. To remove that in the name of further corporatisation of the City would be to rip the soul of the area and heartbreaking to thousands of people.

Those who oppose plans for the conversion of Printworks into offices have until November 3 to make comments at Southwark Council’s website, by searching for the reference 21/AP/3338.

I urge everyone to sign this petition and to contact the following people and organisations arguing against the conversion of Printworks into office space.
