the fabric becomes the world’s first nightclub-in-residence at the london museum
London’s famous fabric nightclub will embark on a one-of-a-kind partnership with the Museum of London for a set of collaborations and performances at a residence nightclub. The newly formed partnership will see the two entities working together over the next few years as they stage art installations, anniversary events and even a festival planned for 2025.
The partnership came as the Museum of London is set to close its current location on the London Wall and move to General Market in West Smithfield, making it neighbors with Fabric Nightclub. The first event between the two entities will open on October 25 and will feature artist Tai Shani in a new performance for Art Night. From there, the Museum of London will officially close its London Wall site on December 4 as it prepares to move to West Smithfield. Going forward, the fabric is preparing to celebrate its 25th anniversary in 2024, and the Museum will work together to help showcase the club’s history and impact on the London nightclub scene throughout its lifetime. existence. After that, 2025 will see the two entities combine to help deliver a festival run by Londoners. After that, the Museum of London will look to finally reopen at its new location in West Smithfield in 2026 where the fabric can officially begin its role as a residence nightclub. Although the partnership may seem a little strange from the outside, the director of the Museum of London Sharon Ament explained why the collaboration was a good fit for the organization:
“From DJ EZ to Jossy Mitsu, Fabric has been at the forefront of the international electronic music scene for decades. As we embark on our exciting new journey, we are delighted to join forces with fabric – our future neighbors and one of London’s most iconic cultural spaces.
Our collaboration will create special moments and memories for Londoners and visitors to the city. The first of many collaborations to offer new insights into London’s history.
