An inspirational couple in their seventies went out on the town for an epic Sunday Sesh at London’s iconic Fabric nightclub last week. They arrived when the doors opened at 10pm and partied until 5am the next morning at a club night called WetYourSelf. The pair drank tequila shots (and tea) and left the VIP area they were kindly set up in to hit the D floor.
The couple from Poland had bought tickets to WetYourSelf, an undergound house and techno party online after reading a review of Fabric in a newspaper at home. The DJ that runs the night, Jacob Husley said, “I was downstairs just opening and I saw her on her crutches going slowly down the stairs.
“I ran down to welcome them to the club, I said ‘it’s amazing you’re here’ and gave them a drink… They had two tequila shots and she gave me a high five.”
The couple told him they had pre-planned to take the tube home at 6am and that they regularly head out on Saturday nights in Poland.
In a Facebook post about the night, Fabric said “They stayed until 5am and we convinced them to take our offer of a free taxi home instead of waiting for the tube. They said they had a great time and loved the crowd and vibe.”
Husley said, “Club culture often is portrayed in a bad light by press focusing on the wrong things, forgetting how important it is for people to dance, lose themselves and enjoy real togetherness,”
So next you’re ever feeling like you’re too old or slack to go clubbing think about this story, get your shit together, have a tequila shot and get out there.
