Save The Fox and Firkin from closure

This petition had 2,704 supporters

The Fox and Firkin, which faces potential closure if new flat developments are approved. 

The proposed scheme to convert an office block to a privately owned flats would leave the iconic awarded live music venue in a nightmare position where people's bedrooms would be located within a metre of the Garden.


'The Fox and Fikin has thrived as a venue for 30 years. One of the key factors in its success is its location. The lack of residents in the surrounding has meant the venue has been able to offer live music 3 nights per week and club nights until 4am at weekends without disturbing anyone. During its entire history The Fox and Firkin has not had any issues with noise complaints. If the huge Sainsbury Warhouses next  is given the green light to be converted into  privately owned flats we would anticipate a deluge of complaints as soon as people move in.

If you think The Fox and Firkin is important within the live music scene in Lewisham and London culture, and are worried about how this new development will affect the Fox and Firkin , please show your concern by signing this petition.
