South London venue Crucifix Lane will be closing its doors for good this weekend, in order to make room for the extension of London Bridge train station. Running for over 20 years, formerly known as Happy Jax and Jacks, it's played host to nights such as Night Slugs and and Bugged Out in the past, including The Chemical Brothers' first show back in 1994.

Yet another casualty for London nightlife this year, following Plastic People's recent closure, it's shutting down for the same reason Cable did in 2012 after Network Rail took hold of the railway arches.

General manager Alex Brooks said: "Crucifix Lane is special because its completely unique in London. Its like an underground 'warehouse' party, but with the creature comforts of home - a permanent bar, plumbed toilets, power, lighting and proper sound. "All good things come to an end. Its time for us to leave the area as the new wave of residential and businesses arrives. The venue was here long before either of those arrived, when London Bridge was a desolate industrial only area."

For the final parties this weekend, Steven Tang, Janina and Lamache are among the names playing on April 2, with the club staying open until 2pm the following day, while Solo Danza sees the club off with Margaret Dygas and Tobi Neumann on April 4.
