Following three and a half years of famed existence, The Cause in Tottenham Hale will close for the very last time on New Years Day to make way for godawful developments.
Despite always being a temporary project, the 400 capacity club, which are increasingly rare to come by in London, was originally founded with a heavy focus on community and supporting mental health. The Cause now operates the full complex at Ashley House with up to seven indoor and three outdoor spaces.
Fast forward to the present and the club has raised over £150,000 for charity and have welcomed over 220,000 revellers through the door. To mark the end of the club, The Cause will host a day and night themed festival on New Years Eve named ‘Goodbye Sweetheart’.
Artists are yet to be announced, but you can expect a plethora of performances from special guests, residents and close friends of the club.
Stuart Glen, co-founder of The Cause shared “Not in our wildest dreams did we ever believe The Cause would have achieved so much in our time at Ashley Road. The community that surrounds our club is like nothing else in the country, we’ve developed several grass roots artists and promoters, raised a huge amount for charity and created what many people constantly tell me is the best club in London. There really is nowhere like it right now and as sad as I am to see it go, I’m much more thankful that we actually made it happen. Big love to everyone that played their part in this”
Eugene Wild, co-founder of The Cause shared “The space has grown over the last 3 and half years to the beast it is now. We never stopped moving forward, always trying to improve the experience of our parties and the offer for our punters. Somehow, we’ve managed to go from a 400 capacity intimate club to what is basically a mini festival site without ever losing the intimacy and home grown vibe, selling out numerous day and night parties that will be remembered forever.”
