London nightclub fabric has announced it will be closing its doors this weekend.
The news comes after two teenagers died at the venue over the last nine weeks as a result of drug overdoses — the venue is suspending its operations indefinitely to investigate.
Fabric made a statement moments ago via their website, saying: "For the past 2 years fabric has operated without incident but tragically in the past 9 weeks two 18 year old boys have died as a consequence of drug overdoses.
"In order to understand how this has happened we have agreed with the police and other agencies to suspend our operation whilst we investigate. The club will therefore be closed this weekend.
We will make a further statement next week but in the meantime for anyone who has purchased a ticket for the club this weekend, we have instructed Resident Advisor to refund all ticket purchases. "
Scheduled events this weekend included takeovers from Critical Sound and Paleman, plus sets from Apollonia, Terry Francis, Rick Maia and more.
