What’s better than a house party? One that lasts for three days with some of the best DJs in the world playing your favourite records and no neighbours to annoy! There’s furniture to jump on, a kitchen to hang in (you’ll always find us in the kitchen at parties) and a vibe that The Guardian called “a perfect night out” Anyone who house partied with Dave Haslam and Howard Marks will testify how brilliant and daft our parties can be!
