The legendary clubbing institution was reported to be in advanced talks with Islington council over the weekend with the rumours being that they had agreed on terms which would allow the club to reopen, and today fabric have came out with an official statement confirming this news and also saying that the appeal date for their court hearing which was set for November 28th has now been called off also.
The club will operate under new licensing laws which will be some of the strictest clubbing culture has ever seen, such as an ID scanning system as well as a lifetime ban for anyone caught either in possession of drugs or trying to buy drugs. In a statement on their website fabric thanked fans for their continued support and donations and said “We are hugely thankful to be able to confirm the news that we have won our licence back. We owe everything to our supporters. We really would not be here today without your unparalleled support and generosity.
