A new 24 hour club, FOLD, has opened in Canning Town and it’s putting London back on the map for exciting nightlife.

Situated in an industrial estate between Canning Town and Star Lane, they had their launch night on the 18th August, where thousands filled the club, which is above a print factory.

Their 24 hour license meant revellers could arrive at 1200 on the Saturday and leave at 1200 on the Sunday.

The new club is the work of the Shapes Collective; a group fighting the closure of London clubs. It’s other venues include The Glove That Fits in Hackney.

After the announcement that Hackney Council had passed a new legislation which will force any new venues in the area to close at 11PM on weekdays and midnight on weekends, this felt like an important step for London in retaining it’s nightlife culture.
Co-founder Lasha Jorjoliani told the Evening Standard that “FOLD presents an uncompromising schedule of forward-thinking electronic music…The 24-hour programme gives us a unique opportunity to surprise, challenge and inspire. Expect extended set times, obscure b2bs and a generally more expansive pallet of sounds over the course of one event.”

Sam Glover, another co-founder, added that the club would, “strive to do things differently in London, cultivating a more continental approach, creating a place where you can spend extended periods or come and go as you please.”

There will be a 3am shut off on weeknights, however due to the new 24 hour Jubilee Line service, FOLD goers can get to and from the club with ease, which we’re sure had a big factor in granting FOLD their 24 hour license.

With consistent events lined up for the whole of September, we’re sure that FOLD will soon be the envy of all clubs in not just London, but also Europe.

The news that FOLD is in East London is another sign of the capital shifting. More investments and new announcements such as these are repeated evidence of that. Here at Warehouse K, we know that our brilliant office space is sitting on a gold mine and in a few years, properties such as ours will be in higher demand than ever.
