ALL THAT JAZZ
by Jez Bond
Just about to leave the house to go to Camden's Forge - where a friend of ours is singing and playing the piano tonight. I'd been to the venue with Dave Hughes some months ago for a spot of lunch and a look around, as it was deemed by a number of people in the industry (both architectural and artistic) to be a wonderful conversion of a building. Indeed it looked it when we toured around during the day - and now I'm very much looking forward to seeing it in action!
Earlier this morning I met a colleague of one of our trustees who runs a music promotions company - and he came to site to discuss the potential of using Park Theatre's spaces for music gigs and even small festivals. Whilst we'll be predominantly presenting theatre we're keen to maximise the space and the range of activities we can offer. We spoke about how wonderful the intimate spaces would be for acoustic sets and solo artists. More discussion to be had, but a very positive starting point.
