The Tottenham venue has announced one last 17-hour party

North London club The Cause has confirmed that it will close on New Year's Day.

The final parties at the Tottenham venue will run over the new year weekend, kicking off with Goodbye Sweetheart, a 17-hour party that starts at 1pm on December 31 and finishes at 6am on January 1. As with past in-house events at The Cause, the lineup for this party will remain secret until it starts, though the team behind the venue have said: "We're going extra large for the day portion of the event and can promise you artists of the highest calibre, followed by some of our nearest, dearest friends and family that have been instrumental in our journey as a club right through the night."

The final party at the venue, from London-based queer promoter Adonis, will run over the course of New Year's Day, with a yet-to-be announced lineup.

The Cause, which opened in 2018 with a view to always being a temporary space, revealed earlier this year that it didn't have long left in its current home as a result of ongoing property developments in the nearby area, and a closing date was teased earlier this month. The possibility remains that the team behind the venue may eventually move to a new space.

Since opening, The Cause has raised over £150,000 for charity via a series of in-house parties, while also hosting a number of external promoters and some of the electronic music scene's biggest names. It also grew from a single, 400-capacity room into a larger complex that took in seven indoor and three outdoor spaces.
