The Campaign launched to Save Brixton Academy which ended last night at midnight has delivered over 20,000 Representations to Lambeth Council, gaining support from The Prodigy, Muse, Defected, Mixmag, NME, Music Week, Skunk Anansie and many more, on top of the 107,000 music fans which have signed the petition to keep the Brixton Academy open.
Michael Kill CEO NTIA
“We have been overwhelmed with the level of response to this campaign, with over 20,000 representations made by music fans to Lambeth Council with support from The Prodigy, Muse, Defected, NME, Mixmag, Music Week, Skunk Anansie and many more.”
“I have had hundreds of conversations with people on this campaign journey, across all walks of life, journalists, bankers, nurses, builders, baristas etc. about their experiences at the Academy. People are emotionally invested in this venue, and it’s clear they are not willing to give it up without a fight.”
George Fleming CEO Save Our Scene
“The response to this campaign has been immense and further highlights the public's desire for Brixton Academy to have a future as a live music venue.”
“Lambeth Council must do everything they can to preserve Brixton Academy. Displacing a community would be a dangerous move which could result in a lot more work for themselves and the Met police.”
Gianluca Rizzo MD Brixton BID
“The huge support for the Brixton Academy with 20,000 letters submitted to Lambeth and thousands of messages across all social media show the importance of this venue. However, we cannot forget that a delayed decision has a negative impact on Brixton businesses, in fact since its closure, over half a million pound per week is being lost in visitors spending. Let’s turn the lights back on for Brixton.”
