SAVE THE GEORGE TAVERN & STEPNEY’S NIGHTCLUB! URGENT!
Swan Housing Association are planning to demolish Stepney’s Nightclub to make way for 2 ground-floor commercial units and 6 luxury apartments with a balcony and a roof terrace. The proximity of the development to The George Tavern would result in the loss of their live music licence and put the George at serious risk of closure.
We do not want to let this happen!
The George Tavern provides a well used and much loved collaborative artistic space in the heart of the East End: a truly historic venue which has hosted many a notable shoot, among them Lawrence Watson's shoot of the legendary Grace Jones.
SUPPORT The George Tavern by stating your objections to those plans by:
WRITING to Tower Hamlet’s planning department at:
PO BOX 55739
5 Clove Crescent
Or via EMAIL:

The matter is now URGENT as the deadline for objections is:
