fabric has issued its first transparency statement since striking a deal that allows the club to reopen with the Metropolitan Police and Islington council at Highbury Magistrates Court on Monday 21st November.

In their fifth statement since the Farringdon venue launched its #saveourculture campaign last month (October), Gary Kilbey, fabric’s managing director, outlined how the money will be used to help “worthy causes” in the nightlife industry. fabric’s appeal fund has raised over £328,000 since it was launched.

“We envisage having a substantial surplus due to the overwhelming support that's been shown to us and these residual funds will be used to help other worthy causes within the industry,” Kilbey said in the statement. “Including Philip Kolvin QC's pursuance of licensing reform which is he currently championing,"

fabric had previously outlined how their appeal – which was originally set to take place on Monday 28th November but will no longer need to go ahead after this week’s agreement – aimed to change law and guidance on licensing in order to stop “injustice” happening to venues in the future.
