Fabric to temporarily close in light of two drug-related deaths
Fabric, a staple of London nightlife, is temporarily closing its doors this weekend after two 18-year-old men passed away from drug overdoses. The deaths, which occurred within the past three months, have left the venue at a standstill as police work to discover how the teens smuggled drugs into the club to begin with.
Fabric is not the only UK venue to experience tragedy as of late. A fire at Studio 338 earlier this week left one of its staff members dead, and the venue in complete destruction not long after being renovated.
Read Fabric’s statement in full below:
“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.”
