INTERVIEW: CRAIG NIGHTINGALE
-WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO HAVE THIS PARTY? Every year we do an exclusive BBQ event with Stonewall that goes on from 7 until 10pm, and of the crowd they are predominately a gay crowd. In the past from 10pm the club was open to the public as usual though we found out a lot of the guests were staying on, and so we decided to close it off to our regular club go-ers to make it a full on gay nighT
-DO YOU HOPE IT TO BECOME A REGULAR EVENT?
I defiantly think we will have a gay summer party every year, maybe even a winter one though for now watch this space! The roof gardens is an amazing venue and it has been nice to be able to offer a respectable club night to the scene, something different! I am gay and this is the kind of party I would love to attend and by ticketsales so would a lot of other people!
-WHY DID YOU SELECT THE ROOF GARDENS AS THE VENUE?
I’ve been working here for almost 2 years, essentially I run the live music programme so I am here full time. the task was given to me to create a successful gay club night and that is exactly what has happened. I’d never promoted a gay club night before and didn’t realise that I had access to such a great network of people, subsequently the event sold out in the first 3 weeks – almost a month before the night was due to happen! I am really pleased to have been able to put together a team of creative people and whom of which are friends of mine. You can see us all in the event shot, and of course a promo video we made a few weeks back to give a sneak peak of some areas of the roof gardens specially for those that have never seen the venue before!
-PLEASE TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOURSELF, WHAT YOU DO, AND WHERE YOU ARE GOING.
Some more information about me, after I left university I’ve built a steady career for myself in the music industry, lived in Italy for a year, and I’ve been working here now 2 years and was given the task to create a live music night, the season runs from October until march in our Tudor Garden and it has been a huge success. I’m really pleased as I won an award for best live music club in London at the London Club Awards last week! I will definitely stay in music though maybe in the future more on the management or digital side.
A side project is I’ve come on board as a promoter at Room service on Thursdays so that’s keeping me busy on Thursdays!
