A week after acquiring G-A-Y and Heaven from HMV Jeremy Joseph has announced a competition “The Club Factor” giving budding club promoters the chance to plan their own club night to be held on Sunday nights at Heaven, with the possibility of securing a full time position.
This does presage the launch of a regular Sunday night party at Heaven, to join the existing roster of scheduled nights on Monday and Thursday – Saturday. And it’s a good chance for anyone uphappy with the choice of nights in London to put their money where their mouth is!
The deadline for submission is 10 March 2013 (and Jeremy is at pains to emphasise it’s best to use the all of the time between now and the deadline to work on proposals) and full details are on Jeremy’s Facebook page (also quoted below).
The Club Factor
1st Prize – Putting Your Own Club Night
With The Possibility If Successful, a salaried Job
As my way of giving something back for the support I’ve had, I’m going to do the same for someone else & give someone the chance to put on their own club night
I’m launching an X Factor style competition for Club Promoters.
With the recession & the need to keep door charges down, its very hard for up & coming promoters to start their own night, I was given the opportunity with Bang & now I want to do the same for someone else
Stage 1 – Write a proposal for a new club night in London, including budget, promotion, music policy, target audience, how many rooms, which rooms at Heaven you would want to use, you dont have to use the whole venue, its all about how many people you think you can attract & then opening the right number of rooms to so fit those numbers. The Winner will get the chance to put their night on at Heaven on a Sunday night, if successful, it could go weekly or monthly which would then me you a permanent job with a salary.
To Be Clear, The winner will not be judged on the idea, not whether they can the whole of Heaven, so you dont need to use all the rooms at Heaven, its about what you do with the rooms you choose to use.
This new night could be an already established night that you think could be expanded to move into Heaven, it could be a brand new concept, it could be something that you would like to see on the gay scene, this is your chance to become a club promoter without taking any of the risks.
If you want this opportunity, get your proposal together & e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Dont worry if there’s anything you are unsure of like budgeting, its more about the idea & we will help with the rest
You dont need to have previous experience, you just need the idea & the dedication to make it happen.
Deadline for your proposal is Sun 10th March.
A bit of advice, take your time on getting your proposal together, you only have one chance to send it in, once sent in, that is your entry, you have til 10th March, so use the time, to put your best proposal forward.
Remember, this could lead to a salaried job, so now its down to you
