This is not how it ends.
The police have revoked our licence to present music, art and culture; something we have been doing with great pride for nearly two decades. They abused archaic licencing laws in order to close us down and they will continue to do so if we do not come together and take action now.
This is about more than fabric – an entire way of life is under threat.
We do not ignore the tragic fact that two people have died after visiting our club and all of us at fabric are devastated about this loss of life. We have been and always will be committed to caring for our customers and operating within the law.
We want to learn, we will try harder. We always have. We started this to create a safe place, a home – not a ‘superclub’. It’s about the fabric that unites us all, that stitches together race, gender, age and sexual preference into a brilliant tapestry. We invest in the best music, technology, interior and visual design and our staff and safety are industry leading.
But, our case shows that whatever measures you take to prevent crime and regardless of how well you run your venue, you too could still be closed. Someone has to take a stand.
Today we launch #saveourculture to take on this fight and we’re asking you to join us. But with no income it’s impossible for us to do this without your support – both social and financial.
