Sound track - The Pod by Anne Savage vs Vinylgroover & The Red Head. Additional production by Paul King / Cube Studios Barcelona.
Video produced by Big Scottish Salmon for We Love Hard House. © 2018 We Love Hard House.
Pure Anne Savage promises to be a unique way to enjoy one of the biggest names globally in hard house. A eight hour journey that will cross genres as the momentum builds from a chunky warm-up set from special guest Sarah G. Anne then takes over for seven hours. The biggest challenge will be for Anne to try and squeeze in as many tracks as she can representing her 25 year since taking up her first DJ residency at legendary Angels in Burnley where she cut her teeth as alongside Carl Cox, Joey Beltram and Paul Taylor.
In a career that has seen regular nominations in the Top 100 DJs poll, Anne´s global appeal continues to dominate the hard house DJ circuit with UK and worldwide appearances at some of the biggest dance events. Her witty banter and authoritativeness on all things hard dance made her a popular presenter for the , Radio 1 and Ministry Of Sound Radio.
Anne´s wide appeal and fan base makes her an ideal ambassador for Plug'em - an initiative by the British Tinnitus Association that aims to remove the stigma of using ear plugs in loud environments, such as concerts, festivals and other music events. welovehardhouse.com in association with Anne Savage will be donating £1 from each ticket sold for Pure Anne Savage to Plug´em
We're raising money for Plug'em through a series of silent auctions where you can bid on unique memorabilia, such as club decor. CLICK HERE to see what's currently up for grabs!
Thank you to everyone that came to A Weekend Away With Paul King
If you came along to A Weekend Away With Paul King - thank you for helping to make the event such a success. A photo-gallery will be available soon.
Online Check-in for our 2 and 3 night events in Eastbourne
Over the winter we have been working on a check-in platform that would allow our customers to "check-in" for weekend events in Eastbourne. We have a number of legal and contractual obligations to the hotel that necessitates a little bit of paperwork. This could cause a bottleneck if we get groups all arriving together. Moving to an online method speeds up the entire process. For those that check-in online, they go direct to the hotel reception, sign the registration card that has been printed and ready for them, show their ID and collect their keys. For those who wish to continue checking in at the hotel - that's fine too. We'll have tablet computers for them... much easier than filling in a form with a pen. The on-line check-in system is currently disengaged from our main computer system on purpose while we evaluate it. We are going live with the new system one event at a time, today those attending A Weekend With Paul King were the first to receive an invite to check-in on line, and we thing those coming for Rob Tissera in a couple of weeks will receive an invitation by the end of this week.
Pure Anne Savage - Change of Venue Announcement
For reasons not connected to the event itself, the Islington o2 Academy have reluctantly pulled out of hosting Pure Anne Savage. As disappointing as that is, we're really pleased to announce that we have secured Phonox in Brixton for the same date and time. Phonox is owned by the same group that XOYO belongs to, XOYO being the new home for Pure Andy Farley as of last year. CLICK HERE to find out more about Phonox.

GOOD TO KNOW - Our no cancellation policy for A Weekend Away With... events
Our Weekend events are hugely popular and most of them sell out in minutes. So why do we have a no cancellation policy if they are so popular? We advertise events six months in advance to give customers the opportunity to save for the balance payment due normally 8 weeks before the weekend itself. The closer to the weekend, the less the chance of finding anyone to take a cancelled room as they have not had the same time to save up. MORE HERE

Four of the top five selling events on moreonthedoor.com are ours! - Thank you for your support
Thank you to Aaron Calver for pointing out four We Love Hard House events are in the top five of moreonthedoor.com's top events for December. A leader-board of top events has so many variables (month, size of venue etc) we prefer to judge the success of an event based on attendees and feedback. That said, great to see our events listed in this way (based on events on sale at the time).
1 Pure Andy Farley*
2 The Cheeky Tracks "Easter Bunny Boiler"
3 A Weekend With Rob Tissera
4 Pure Anne Savage
5 A Weekend Away with Paul King
With the exception of one week, Pure Andy Farley 2017 remained in the top spot for the entire duration the tickets went on sale. We should point out that this doesn't make our events any more or less credible as those from our counterparts. We should also point out that we used to own moreonthedoor.com and we use them exclusively, just to be completely transparent! We just wanted an excuse to say thank you for your support!
Happy New Year!
However you plan to celebrate New Years Eve we hope you have a safe one and wish you a Happy New Year. Our first event of 2018 is A Weekend Away With Paul King on 16th February. CLICK HERE for details of events so far announced for 2018. Later in January we will be announcing details of our Autumn 2018 events at Eastbourne - there are a few surprises there! Happy New Year!
20 Years of Sarah Gee
This month sees Sarah Gee celebrate 20 years as a DJ.

In January we'll be publishing an interview Sarah has done with legendary producer Baby Doc and in March and April you can catch Sarah flexing her versatile DJ muscles playing a variety of different genre sets for us at our some of our "A Weekend Away With..." events in Eastbourne and as part of the Pure Anne Savage event in London. Happy Anniversary Sarah!
Little Miss Natalie joins A Weekend Away With The Girls Featuring Lisa Pin-Up
Kirsty Lee James has been given the opportunity of travelling to Chicago as part of a charity mission. The dates of Kirsty's trip clash with A Weekend Away With The Girls which means she won't be able to join us in Eastbourne. As sad as we are that Kirsty won't be with us, we are delighted to announce that Little Miss Natalie will take Kirsty's place on the line-up. CLICK HERE for more information.

Ticketswap NOT authorised by We Love Hard House
We have had a number of people ask if Ticketswap are authorised by us to change the name of ticket holders for tickets to our events. The simple answer is absolutely not. We have never heard of Ticketswap until recently. Our view is that we work hard to put on our events that are priced as competitively as possible, and our customers deserve and expect to pay not a penny more than they should. That's why we offer a FREE name change service and our online ticket partner, moreonthedoor.com work in the same way. We also offer a wait-list service for sold-out events. Why should a third party make money from our customers and our hard work? Tickets for our events re-sold through a re-seller such as Ticketswap are immediately deemed invalid. If you are unable to attend one of our events and want to offer your ticket to someone else, CONTACT US with the details and we'll happily assist, for free.
2017 has been an amazing year for us, thank you to the DJs and clubbers who have supported We Love Hard House. 2018 is already shaping up to be even bigger, we'll be announcing the details of what we have planned in the next few days. But for now, on behalf of the team here, we wish you an amazing Christmas, be safe and see you on a dance-floor very soon. (Thank you to Adelaide Afrides for the photo!).
The Rob Tissera Road Cruiser Rail Fare Buster
Travelling from Leeds to Eastbourne to attend the A Weekend Away With Rob Tissera event by rail is working out at an extortionate £200 return - the fare being more than attending the three day event. Its cheaper to fly to most destinations in Europe and have enough left over for for a decent meal. We became suspicious when we started seeing posts on Facebook from those in Leeds asking for anyone interested in car-shares. We've done some research and have come up with an alternative which we are calling the Rob Tissera Road Cruiser - a luxury mini-bus operated by a reputable and fully insured firm on our behalf. There were cheaper options but we felt that for a five and a half hour journey we'd want to offer something that was comfortable. We're now evaluating the viability and if there is enough interest that helps cover the cost, the return fare would be £50 per person. CLICK HERE for more information and to register your interest.

Our logo is now a registered trademark
Over the last couple of years we have been working on building our new brand since selling part of our business, e-ticket platform moreonthedoor.com. Thanks to the huge support from customers, DJs, producers and other parts of the scene the We Love Hard House brand has become widely known. In order to protect the brand identity from unauthorised use (we've recently closed down an eBay trader who was using the brand logo on merchandise) the brand "mark" has been registered as a global trademark on the Trade Marks Registry on our behalf by the Intellectual Property Office of Great Britain and Northern Ireland under No. UK00003243211. Thank you for giving us the support which meant protecting the brand a sensible thing to do.

As part of our support of vinyl as a format, We Love Hard House has entered into a partnership with Cut2Vinyl, a brand new low run high quality producer of 12”, 10” or 7” on black Lathe vinyl.

Our own Frank Farrell hits the charts with his band Ethos
Frank Farrell is the pinnacle of versatility. We know him more has a hard-dance producer who works with the likes of Andy Farley, Captain Tinrib and Riggsy to name just a few. Add in Drum & Bass. Electro and Breaks you begin to see there is more to Frank than meets the eye.

The track is doing rather well, with airplay on many radio stations and analysts predicting this is going to be the Christmas track of 2017. CLICK HERE for more info

And The Winner is...?
Feedback on social media has a huge impact on the hospitality business. Given that the West Rocks did an amazing job for us, and so many of you said how much you appreciated how the hotel welcomed us, as a thank you to the hotel we asked those at A Weekend Away With Ben Stevens to leave comments on Trip Advisor, anyone doing so could win a room at another of our weekends at West Rocks next year. A huge thank you to everyone that left a review, the hotel had no idea we'd asked you to do that and were humbled and grateful that so many did. Congratulations to Georgina Wesley - her name was the first out of the draw and wins A Weekend Away With... of her choice
