After several individuals were taken to hospital following an event at the Hammersmith venue, fabric has urged clubbers to stay safe and to be cautious of a new, unidentified substance that is presently circulating UK clubs.
On Thursday, fabric released a statement to Instagram with the caption, “There is now a chemical in circulation that is being sold as ketamine and regrettably a lot of individuals have been hospitalized by taking it.
In the past week, there have been reports of “fake ketamine,” which is currently known to have side effects like breathing difficulties. The police have said that this has also occurred at a number of other places in London, according to fabric. “Various persons who attended our event on Tuesday night were sent to hospitals,” she continued.
Fabric also confirmed that there is a designated welfare zone and paramedics on call during the event for anyone feeling unwell. “If you’re unsure, don’t take it. Take care of your friends and yourself, they urged.
“The Loop is working to build harm reduction hubs, which can encourage collaboration between those engaged in the nighttime economy and larger stakeholders, like the police and health services, to reduce potential drug-related harm across communities, city centers, and venues.”
The procedure for drug screening and the data it produces, she continued, “may directly engage people who may be using or considering taking drugs and provide personalized harm reduction dialogues.”
