A man is planning to dance outside Fabric for 24 hours

He's currently awaiting permission from the club

As fabric starts its campaign against a licence revocation, one dedicated raver has announced his way of supporting the club.

Tim Griffith plans to dance outside the famed London nightspot for a consecutive 24 hours to show his support after it was announced it would be closed indefinitely two weeks ago.

He admits to have never stepped inside fabric, but his relationship with clubbing is the main reason for his planned exploits.

His GoFundMe page for the 24hr Fabric Footwork reads: "For many, clubbing is an escape from the mundane, drab 9-5's we live. Escapism. Breaking free. Expression. It has evolved into a sub-culture which people are proud to be a part of. A new-age heritage. A community. Take away community and what are we left with? Disconnection. For me, the very reason I started clubbing was to escape.

"I felt little to no connection with anything or anyone in the world around me at that time and yet, through clubbing I found solace and acceptance. I made friends, loved, listened, danced, laughed, cried, probably fell over a few times, knocked a few pints over along the way, and grew into the more assured version of who I am today, thanks to the people I met along the way. None of this might ever have happened had I not found my escape through clubbing."

No date or time has been announced as he says he is awaiting the permission of fabric, which opened in 1999.

The Farringdon club started its #SaveOurCulture campaign on Friday, which is taking donations to contribute towards a legal battle and staff costs.
