Get all the latest news and views from Islington Town Hall here...

Fabric closed its doors indefinitely last month (August) while Islington Council reviews the famous London nightclub’s license after the drug-related deaths of two teenagers in the previous nine weeks.

The club’s license was suspended indefinitely following a review requested by the borough’s police team. With a Met spokesman at the time saying, “Officers felt the need to act due to concerns about the safety of those attending the club because of the supply of class A drugs in the venue and the recent deaths of two young men linked to the club.”

In the early hours of this morning (7th September), fabric’s hearing with Islington’s Licensing Sub Committee reached the decision that the venue’s license should be revoked. Read the full story here.
