Protesters have “reclaimed” a celebrated east London music venue after landlords changed the locks.
Passing Clouds in Dalston, one of London’s leading platforms for alternative music for more than a decade, faces closure as its lease is at an end.
The owners of the building took it back last week. Those running the club thought its lease ran until August and protesters occupied the building on June 16, allowing Passing Clouds to continue operating.
The venue, which opened in 2006, was sold last September to a new landlord, Landhold Developments.
