A Weekend Away With Andy Farley 2
Friday 9th to Monday 12th March 2018
The West Rocks Hotel
44-46 Grand Parade
We are often asked why we don´t use a bigger hotel to meet demand, its a fair question. The answer is that the premise of these particular events is to offer clubbers and DJs a very different experience, this is almost as close as you can get to a DJ hosting a house party for his or her friends. The West Rocks Hotel is ideal for that.
We have a very privileged working relationship with the venue, they allow us to turn the hotel in to a hard-house oasis where even the hotel staff become part of the production team. There are not many hotels that would give us that kind of support and the event wouldn´t work as well anywhere else as a consequence.
Previous attendees and DJs have overwhelmingly said that anything on a larger scale would take away a lot of what they loved about the event. Another key factor is the hotels ownership; Trade DJ legend Steve Thomas and his partner Chris are very supportive of these events and go to considerable effort to ensure that we are allowed to deliver a weekend like no other.
It has been suggested that we could increase the price to reduce the demand. That's not really what we are about. Sure we aim to make a profit from these events, that's how we earn a living and by working in this way enables us to work full time on delivering the amount of events that we do. But we are also passionate about hard house and believe that each event should be priced so that it is accessible to as many people as possible. Its one of the reasons why we have a low deposit and announce the events as far in advance as possible, with the balance due around the time of month when most salaried workers get paid.
The events are sometimes referred to as ¨"Weekenders" - we have deliberately steered well clear of using the term "Weekender" in our marketing and publicity as these are certainly not comparable to one you may attend on a Pontins Holiday Camp Weekenders such as the ones put on by Tidy are huge budget mass market masterpieces, often with over 100 DJs; Like many, we here have had some of our best weekends in Prestatyn or Stockport.
The A Weekend Away With... offers a very different experience and for them to be a success we must remain focused on delivering that.
We are truly sorry if the event you would like to attend has sold out. We do offer a WAIT LIST system in case of cancellations and there you can find some FAQ's.
Thank you for your support.
