Bloc Granted Premises License For Autumn St. Studio Space



After a very dramatic last 12 months the rising from the ashes for UK promoters  Bloc  appears complete with the outfit confirming that they have been granted a premises licence for the venue they run at Autumn St Studios.

The new license grants Bloc to run the venue under the same understanding that any licensed nightclub in the UK is run, ie. selling alcohol and providing regulated entertainment.  It completes what is a remarkable turnaround for the brand, as many commentators predicted that’d we seen the last of Bloc following last years spectacular implosion in what should have been their final hour. Yet mere months after the festival had gone into administration the team behind Bloc managed to regroup and then launched a smaller series of nights in London as the start of a comprehensive PR exercise in winning back the trust of the clubbing community.

The new run of parties running under  “back to basics” ethos from their aforementioned Autumn St venue have done much to restore their credibility in the capital and now with their new ‘nightclub license in hand can look to the forward to future projects with more certainty. Their next event takes place this weekend on May 4, and features 808 legend Egyptian Lover and I-f. See you down there…
