London club The Cause has announced that it will not reopen until further notice, as the global outbreak of coronavirus, or COVID-19, continues to spread.
It has been a terrible time for UK club culture. We lost a big one, perhaps the biggest, with the passing of all round musical titan and rebel with cause Andrew Weatherall, who was set to feature here as one half of A Love From Outer Space, at Hare & Hounds in Birmingham. Sean Johnston will now fly the flag solo.
London club The Cause are running three parties in February, including a 19-hour rave, to raise $50,000 for the Australian bushfire crisis.
Coming together with promoters Bizarro and Percolate, the Tottenham institute will throw the First Nation Fire Relief party on February 8th, running from 1PM until 8AM the following day.
The main room will welcome George Fitzgerald, Fred P AKA Black Jazz Consortium, Hammer, nd_Baumecker, and Man Power, as well as an unannounced special guest.
North London club The Cause will remain open at its current premises indefinitely.
Initially opening with the aim of raising £25,000 for charity partners Mind in Haringey, C.A.L.M. and Help Musicians UK, the venue surpassed their target and have since raised over £50,000 for the charities and beyond.
A charity rave in North London next month will raise funds for Centrepoint.
A response to record numbers of homelessness amongst youth in the UK, the Jungle Jam-hosted event at The Cause on 6th December will raise money for the charity, which provides accommodation and support to homeless people aged between 16–25.
Independent London club The Cause has revealed a potential new location.
Launched in 2018, the Tottenham venue, which originally had a year-long contract and was due to close in April 2019, extended their contract until the beginning of 2020 with New Years Eve serving as the closing party.
