After months of campaigning to overturn the decision that closed the iconic nightclub Fabric earlier this year, Islington Council has announced that the club will be allowed to reopen.
The London club originally had to close its door in September following two drug related deaths at the venue. But after a review earlier today, the local council has reissued a new license for the club, which will now include no admittance to under 19s, CCTV, ID scanners and lifetime bans for those dealing or in possession of drugs.
In a statement, Fabric said, "We are hugely thankful to be able to confirm the news that we have won our licence back. We owe everything to our supporters. We really would not be here today without your unparalleled support and generosity. So many different people stepped up to put their voices to our cause, artists from all corners of the music community, fellow promoters who have put on huge events from us and clubbers from around the world who all united behind us. We’ve even seen people sporting their #savefabric T Shirts on the other side of this planet showing just how big this thing is. So, thank you to all of you. Without the strength of your backing this would not have happened. You saved fabric."
The venue is likely to start trading again later this week.
