Turnmills Closing

Turnmills Closing


21st-23rd March



The rumours are true. After 23 successful years, this really is the end of Turnmills. More than 3000 massive club nights have been held there and many of the biggest talents in the DJ world have walked through the doors to play out hits but, come Easter, this Clerkenwell favourite will close its doors for the last time. Make sure you don't miss the Turnmills closing parties - they're likely to go down in clubland history.

When is Turnmills Closing?
The 21st-23rd March is the last weekend in the Turnmills calendar. However, it’s not all doom and gloom – there will, of course, be a massive send off titled, aptly, The Last Dance. Turnmills closing is going to be a superb excuse for a three day bender and will feature all of the DJs who have been involved in making Turnmills the hottest club in East London for all these years.

But why, oh why, oh why?
Turnmills closing means that it is falling foul of a similar fate to that of Kings Cross clubs up the road (The Key, The Cross and Canvas). Turnmills lease is up and the landlord wishes to redevelop the site although in typical Turnmills style there's no hard feelings as the landlord has accommodated the club until they felt it was a good time to hang up their hats. The rumours have been rife for a couple of years – but now it’s official. Turnmills will be closing but it's leaving on a high and all the memories will be good.

A Clubland Legend
The director at the club, Danny Newman, remains upbeat about the club’s closure, “It feels as though it’s come to a natural end, and we are finishing on a high. The club has been the best and busiest it’s been in its history, and that’s the way I want it to be remembered. I’m really proud of what we’ve done and been through at Turnmills; the club will always have a special place in my heart.”

Turnmills Closing On A High
And so it will be remembered. Since its opening in 1989, this prestigious club has given London clubbers some of the most groundbreaking nights in the capital. From The Gallery to Get Loaded, Together to Headstart, Turnmills has always broken the mould and pushed music and clubbing to its boundaries – and that is why night after night, loyal clubbers flocked in their droves to hit the dancefloors.

The Home of Clubland's Biggest Names
And this is why the big name DJs continued to queue up to play the massive sound system. Top acts have included The Chemical Brothers, Paul Oakenfold, Judge Jules, Ferry Corsten, Paul Van Dyk, Fatboy Slim, Josh Wink, Roger Sanchez, and many, many more. And, of course, there’s no forgetting the residents – Tall Paul, and Faithless’ Sister Bliss.

Turnmills Closing Parties
However, all is not lost. Two of Turnmills most popular club nights will live on at another club. The Gallery and Together will continue to reign, even after the king is dead – watch this space, the new venues will be announced soon.

In the meantime, make the most of Turnmills whilst it’s still here. There’s still time to head along to events like The Gallery, We Love Asterix, Alchemy and Together – buy tickets, here, and relish in the final hours of this clubbing mecca. More information about the final Easter weekend will be available soon. Watch this space.

Turnmills may be closing soon but until then the party continues!
