I think it is disgraceful that they have closed down The Drome. I have just bought a flat 5 minutes walk from the entrance to the Drome and have no problem with it being there, in fact I think it helps prevent the place and surrounding area turning in to a dull, seedy, no mans land. It helps breath life in to the area and has never caused anyone any problems that I know of. Bah humbug to Southwark Council. Just because you don't understand it, use it or like it, dosn't mean that is bad or wrong or badly organised. Where are all the young ravers going to go now? You think The Drome is badly organised? You can bet your life the illegal warehouse or loft they will go to now will be ten times worse. It's a short life that we lead, let's have some fun. There's more to life than this.....

I must confess it is a shame. I had to treck to Camden for Raindance. Having said that, if they really were not complying with license demands to improve facilities, then the Council have a reason. We have all had quite enough of Club owners who don't do anything about maintainin their venues. I just hope that any new applicants for using the venue in this way won't be turned down until they have had a chance to prove theay can act more responsibly.

Recent events might suggest that the drome should have been given a chance rather than any new applicants.

This may be a simplistic cause and effect argument and whover runs the club is clearly not responsible for people taking badly made illegal drugs, though if people are taking these drugs it is possible to make the enviroment in which they do it safer with free water, chill out rooms good ventilation bouncers that let people outside for air and maybe even drug testing so users can find what they are taking.

I understand that there is to be a cinema developed near Bermondsey Square, although the existing antiques market will be retained. The cinema will go up on stilts above the market. Would be grateful for other news on this or sites where plans can be viewed.
