The Gallery is celebrating it's mammoth 20th Birthday at Ministry of Sound
In April The Gallery celebrates its landmark twentieth birthday. A milestone seldom reached in clubland, it holds special significance for London’s clubbers – an occasion to evoke laser tinged memories across two decades! What started off at Turnmills in 1995 for a one-off gathering of just fifty people, has grown to what can legitimately be considered the biggest weekly Friday night in the country! Now based at Ministry of Sound after moving south of the river in 2008, The Gallery will continue to provide the capital’s electronic music soundtrack for the next twenty years and beyond!
Having welcomed esteemed resident DJs down the years including Judge Jules, Sister Bliss of Faithless, Sander Van Doorn, Tall Paul and Markus Schulz (the latter two of which are current residency holders), The Gallery gave notable London club show debuts to Tiesto and Armin Van Buuren amongst others. But with a fan base famous for its loyalty, the night has forged a reputation for being more than just music. Providing an unrivalled sense of unity on the dance floor and hence the backdrop for lifelong friends and even marriages to be made!
However birthdays are not just for reminiscing about good times gone by. It’s important also to look towards the future, embracing the forward thinking ethos on which The Gallery has cemented its legacy. So aside from the normal weekly club shows, The Gallery will curate some special and one off events to begin the celebrations early!
The road to the 20th anniversary culminates on Friday 10th April at Ministry of Sound, welcoming Gallery favourites W&W. After tireless efforts to secure Willem and Wardt for this momentous occasion, the Dutch duo returns for a first time since December 2013. Where a capacity crowd witnessed what was arguably Ministry’s most memorable festive celebration! Expect a customary energetic performance from the duo, crowned by those obligatory classics for an emotional birthday sing-a-long.
