It has come to light that Fabric's license appeal date has been set for November 28th. The historic nightclub had been forced to close indefinitely following investigations stemming from the deaths of two attendees, but its owners started an online petition to readdress the matter in a court of law and have raised over £260,000 in donations to that end.
In a Facebook post, Fabric's managing director David Kilbey wrote:
"Yesterday at 4pm we were pleased to receive a confirmed date for the appeal to be heard. It will commence Monday 28th November at Highbury Magistrates Court. We would like to thank everyone involved in helping to obtain this expedited date. We have begun to prepare our case."
In addition, he discussed the details of Philip Kolvin QC's work for Fabric, writing:
"Philip has just finished the 1st draft of our request for the need to change the Home Secretaries Guidance under the Licensing Act. We have put this to a number of trade and music industry organisations and associations to seek their opinion, advice and support. We want to ensure this is something the industry as whole are able to get behind."
