The London club will stay open.
In a statement on social media, FOLD has confirmed that it’ll continue with its planned programme of events until a full license hearing can be arranged. The post states: “FOLD is proud to confirm that the licensing suspension has been lifted”.
“We at FOLD deny any accusations of wrongdoing or impropriety against us or any individual employee and are assisting with the police’s ongoing investigation.” The club will re-open tonight (15 November) with the Cartulis 10-year anniversary weekend, which will run until 6am (GMT) on Sunday (17 November).
On Wednesday, Newham Council suspended the venue’s 24-hour license and ordered for an immediate closure, following an allegation of fraudulent behaviour that resulted in two arrests.

FOLD is proud to confirm that the licensing suspension has been lifted, with a full licensing hearing to be scheduled in the coming weeks. In the meantime, our schedule will be resumed as planned. We at FOLD deny any accusations of wrongdoing or impropriety against us or any individual employee and are assisting with the police’s ongoing investigation. We could not have achieved this without your ongoing support and the actions of our community in the last 36 hours. We have proven once again that together we can stand strong in the face of adversity. We would like to thank every single one of you that has supported us in this difficult period; all your efforts and messages have meant the world to us. Our activities will return with immediate effect, with the same passion, with the same love. FOLD are confident that the police will conclude that FOLD have not acted improperly, failing which FOLD will fight until the truth is revealed. See you on the dancefloor. Doors open from 11pm.
