Nightspot faces prospect of losing license due to property development
The future of Ministry Of Sound‘s flagship nightclub in London could be under threat after plans were put forward for a property development close to the venue.
The dance club, which has been running for 18 years in Southwark, is in danger of losing its license if proposals are approved by Isle Of Man developer Oakmayne to build a residential building opposite the club.
Ministry Of Sound holds over 200 events a year at the venue with a total annual attendance in excess of 300,000.
It has also held a number of conferences for a host of bodies including the UK’s Youth Parliament, Mothers Against Guns and Urban Mission. Ministry Of Sound Group CEO Lohan Presencer said: “When Oakmayne told us that ‘nightclubs come and go’, we were horrified.
“Ministry of Sound is not just any nightclub, it’s the most famous nightclub in the world and the heart of a global entertainment business. We must do everything in our power to save our club and our business.”
