  • fabric has released a statement after having its license revoked by Islington Council. The club lost its license after a six-hour meeting at Islington Town Hall. The statement reads: "fabric is extremely disappointed with Islington Council's decision to revoke our license. This is an especially sad day for those who have supported us, particularly the 250 staff who will now lose their jobs. Closing fabric is not the answer to the drug-related problems clubs like ours are working to prevent, and sets a troubling precedent for the future of London's night time economy." The club also thanked everyone who supported the #savefabric campaign, which saw an online petition gain more than 140,000 signatures. fabric's licence was suspended and put up for review in August following the recent drug-related deaths of two 18-year-olds, Ryan Browne and Jack Crossley. The club has been closed since Friday, August 12th.
