UK’s traditional club and musical landmark Ministry Of Sound is saved. The legendary club was set to close due to real estate developments in the next months, but with the massive „Save Our Club“ campaign and support of the London mayor Boris Johnson, the club remains in existence. Here’s the official statement from Ministry Of Sound:
“WE DID IT!
After the heroic intervention of Mayor of London Boris Johnson at City Hall on 19 December, a landmark legal deal has been agreed between Ministry of Sound and the developer Oakmayne that will enable Eileen House to be redeveloped without threatening our club’s existence.
That’s all we ever wanted in the first place – and finally that’s what we’ve achieved. It’s taken five long years, but we vowed to keep fighting until we’d secured our future. It was that simple.
We couldn’t have done it without you – the hundreds of thousands from all over the world who joined the battle to save our club. You helped us to persuade Boris to do the right thing. We cannot thank you enough for your encouragement, goodwill and support. Together we’ve ensured the music at Ministry never stops.”
Congratulations for this great development.
