Fabric - is there a name in London more synonymous with clubbing? The place is an institution, a purveyor of up-all-night antics; even as Londoners are trading their dancing shoes for craft beer and quaint pubs, Fabric is keeping the party vibe alive.
But all this could be about to end as Fabric’s licence is up for review. The club has been shut for 28 days in order to work with Islington Council and the Met police, who will give their verdict on 6th September. Step up DJ and organiser of Sunday night’s WetYourSelf! Jacob Husley, who has started a campaign to #savefabric. Originally only hoping for 1000 signatures, the petition garnered more than 42,000 in just over a day with clubbers from around the world sharing their Fabric memories on twitter.
This isn’t the first time Jacob Husley has caught the media’s attention, earlier in 2016, he was pictured with an elderly Polish couple who stayed at Fabric until 5am drinking tea and dancing the night away. And it’s these kind of mad, hilarious stories that have made Fabric such an institution since it opened 17 years ago, as well as hosting DJs such as Chase & Status, Duke Dumont and many hundreds of others. We think the London clubbing scene would be a whole lot less fun without Fabric.
