Fabric is set to re-open after the club owners and Islington Council agree stricter new conditions.

The well-known nightclub was shut in September with the threat of permanent closure after the deaths of two teenagers in drug-related incidents and police concerns over drugs at the club. However, Fabric has been given a life-line in a court hearing yesterday, after the local council agreed on certain conditions including an over-19s policy, ID scanners, better CCTV and lifetime bans for anyone associated with drugs at the venue.

Presiding Judge Robin McPhee said "I’m satisfied that the council and Fabric pulled together to get a set of workable conditions to prevent drug use and supply."

The cubs owners issued a statement after the appeal saying "You saved Fabric.”

It said: “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.” 

Mayor of London Sadiq Kahn tweeted "JUST ANNOUNCED: @fabriclondon will reopen. Thanks to all who helped find a solution that protects the club’s future & keeps clubbers safe."

In the last decade London has lost half of its clubs and 40% of its live music venues - a worrying trend that is reflected across the UK.
