Sign my petition to show your support for fabric. On the 6th of September, fabric could be closed forever when their licence is reviewed by Islington Borough Council.
I’ve been working with fabric for the last 8 years as a promoter and resident DJ of the Sunday night party at fabric WetYourSelf! Like all of you, I’ve been welcomed as part of the fabric family since I first walked through their doors, so this is an issue that’s very close to my heart.
You probably saw the story about the elderly Polish couple who came to the club and stayed until 5am in the morning. It became one of the most talked about stories that week, not only in the UK but across the globe with three million people reading Washington Post website alone [you can read it here if you missed it. https://goo.gl/h6rEck
The reason why I’ve brought up this story is because it shows something about us, the clubbing community, about the culture behind it and how fabric operates – that no matter how old you are, rich or poor, colour or gender, you are welcome in the club and you will be looked after. It’s like a big family. This is the ethos that’s at the core of club culture and fabric’s operations.
fabric do their best to keep their customers safe and protect them from drugs and adopt a zero drugs policy. Closing a venue such as fabric would be an incredibly short-sighted response to a complex problem.
Let’s all come together to ask Sadiq Khan, our new Mayor of London, who won our support on his pledges to save London’s Night Time Economy and Islington Borough council, to support our campaign. Let’s ask them to back fabric’s future and the rest of our city’s clubs as icons of London’s incredible music scene and pledge to work together with him to make our clubs safer while also protecting our night time economy.
