A hen party is a once in a lifetime experience and, as such, arranging it can be tough. This is the bride-to-be’s last night of freedom, and she deserves only the very best. Help is at hand – Lauren of Last Night of Freedom rounds-up her top hen party ideas and activities for 2016 so you can make sure you get it just right.
Appreciate the subtle art of mixology during your hen party (and get very tipsy), with a cocktail making class (our top hen party activity of 2015, we’ll have you know). Become a mistress of cocktail-based refreshments and learn how to whip up a classic Mojito or fruity Daiquiri within a matter of minutes – a necessary life skill, we would argue.
We have a huge range of cocktail classes in our most popular locations; from bouncing Barcelona to notorious Newcastle to marvellous Marbs. And, if you really feel like splashing the cash, you can even add delicious grub to your cocktail workshops.
There’s nothing quite like getting everyone involved in a cheese-tastic hen party dance class to break the ice. From Thriller master class to Abba dance class, and even a Dirty Dancing workshop, there is a world of classes awaiting your last night of freedom – so put your best foot forward, ladies.
The Bride-to-Be will, of course, get a starring role, and the expert choreographers will teach you all the basic moves and turn you into a troupe of professional dancers. Lights, camera, action.
A taxi? No, thank you. It’s your hen party; you deserve only the very best. A party bus is the ultimate way to travel in style, and is hugely popular with our hens. We have some of the finest mobile discos in a range of gorgeous locations, ready to help you celebrate until the early hours.
These fabulous modes of transport will truly make you feel a million dollars – they have everything; from huge sound systems, amazing dance floors, plasma screens and, most importantly, Champagne on board. Heaven.
Every Bride-to-Be deserves some serious pamper time, making a spa treatment the perfect 2016 hen party activity. After months of planning the wedding (and tackling the dreaded seating plan), a relaxing and tranquil visit to the spa is a wonderful way to spend a couple of hours with your best friend.
We have a vast array of spas available for your gorgeous send-off into married life; from 5-star venues in luxury hotels to charming and historical Roman Baths, and even the world-famous Blue Lagoon in Reykjavik. You’ll feel like a new woman after your hen weekend.
Adonis / Dreamboys / Forbidden Nights
What would a hen party be without a trip to a male strip show? These gorgeous guys sure know how to put on a performance (and turn your future Mother-in-Law a very flattering shade of puce).
From the legendary Adonis Cabaret to the oh-so-dreamy Dreamboys and the BGT famous Forbidden Nights – these shows are amazing, dazzling and just a little bit breathtaking. There’ll be something for everyone in the group (and, yes – that includes your Mother-in-Law).
White Water Rafting
White water rafting is fun, wild, and the perfect way to do something a little different for your hen party in 2016. It’s sure to make one hell of a splash as you and your group hurtle down the river, battling the rapids whilst giggling hysterically.
We offer this activity on both man-made rivers – for those who are not so confident with their swimming skills (just in case, ladies) – and natural rivers that test your strength, speed and stamina. It’s an unforgettable hen activity.
