London's Crucifix Lane to close

Another London club bites the dust. South London club Crucifix Lane will close after the Easter Weekend. As with Cable, located close to Crucifix Lane in the London Bridge arches, the closure has been forced by Network Rail’s expansion of London Bridge train station. The venue has existed under different names for over 20 years, hosting shows by the Chemical Brothers as early as 1994 as part of Andrew Weatherall’s Sabresonic weekly. It opened in its present guise at the beginning of 2011,  A press release from the club reads that “the establishment is at it again … Crucifix Lane is the next London nightclub to fall foul of rich redevelopers and callous gentrification. Just around the corner from Cable (a club that suffered the same fate not so long ago) and in the same set of railway arches, Network Rail are coming in to batten down the hatches and take control of the space to make way for London Bridge Station expansion."
