An empty building in Tottenham Mews was broken into on Sunday evening and used as a commercial entertainment venue disturbing nearby residents into the early hours of Easter Monday. The two-storey building and former mental health clinic is owned by Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust (C&I) and has been empty for several years.
Fitzrovia News understands that police twice visited the building where the pop-up event was taking place. Sources say over 100 people attended paying £15 each for a night of dance music. The organisers brought their own sound equipment and several security guards with them. The event ended shortly after daybreak on Monday morning.
The police first arrived on Sunday evening in response to a report that people were breaking into the building. They later returned in the early hours of the morning after complaints of noise.
On Tuesday morning the building was found to be empty and workers from C&I arrived to secure the building.
In 2012 a planning application was submitted to Camden Council to redevelop the site to provide a new community mental health resource centre, but the application was later withdrawn.
The building is in a derelict state and residents have complained about rats around the site.
