The club has also pledged to operate to a “gold standard” if allowed to re-open. 

London’s Fabric club has submitted its evidence for this month’s appeal hearing against its recent closure.

As it details in its latest transparency statement, the evidence consists of 41 witness statements, including one from former Metropolitan Police chief inspector Adrian Studd and drug welfare expert Professor Fiona Measham.

Studd is an expert in security provision at licensed premises that was in charge of licensing at the London Olympics in 2012, while Measham is a co-director of The Loop, an organisation that has pioneered drug testing at UK festivals.

Fabric has also submitted a new 155-page operational procedures manual, which details the security, welfare and medical facilities the club will provide should it be allowed to re-open along with 32 new license conditions to ensure it will operate to a “gold standard.”

The club has also submitted written evidence to the House of Lords Select Committee on the Licensing Act. It includes 12 recommendations for changes in the law “so that in future problems at licensed premises are addressed in partnership between licensees and regulatory stakeholders, with closure generally being a measure of last resort.”

Fabric was closed for good by Islington Council in September following the suspected drug-related deaths of two 18-year-old men at the venue over the summer. It has since launched the #savefabric campaign to raise money for its appeal hearing on November 28.

Despite Fabric’s closure, its mix series has continued, with the next a 41-track set from Nina Kraviz. The club is also releasing an 111-track compilation to raise money for the appeal featuring Special Request, Clams Casino and more.
