Winter is coming to Kings Langley

This week the quiet town of Kings Langley, home to Pure and all it’s engineers, will be transformed into Kings Landing to celebrate the launch of the Game Of Thrones season three on DVD. For two weeks only, the village will officially be known as Kings Landing, the capital of the Seven Kingdoms in the TV show. We’re offering fans the chance to win a Pure Evoke D4 Glacier, by creating the best house motto for us here at Pure. The house name is Glacier- we’re just missing the motto. There are loads of ways you can get involved and the winner will be announced on 24th February 2014.

To enter, you can email us your answer to social@pure.com, or tweet us using the hastag #purekingslanding. Or, if you’re one of the fans coming from near and far to Kings Langley over the next couple of weeks, pop into Dalling and Co, where someone will be waiting to take your answer.

For some inspiration take a look at our website and for other house mottos from the show click here.

Celebrate Opera day with Pure

Opera

Whether you’re passionate about Wagner, Verdi, Puccini, or Mozart there’s no better time to celebrate your passion for opera than Opera Day on 8th Feb. If you have yet to give opera a try, today is the perfect day to begin.

Of course there’s nothing like experiencing the real thing but whilst at home why not surf the Pure Connect app or website for complete opera scores and listen to the melodramatic intensity of Rigoletto or the beautifully romantic La Traviata? If you’re new to opera then why not try the comic and light hearted L’Elisir d’Amore?

Jongo_Stereo_T4_GoblinBlueBy streaming the music from your phone or tablet to our Jongo multiroom music system, you can create the perfect atmosphere and you can even pair speakers and listen in stereo to add to the drama.  For more information, please visit www.pureconnect.com and www.pure.com/wireless
