Everyone loves a top night out but hen weekends in Brighton can be so much more than just nightclubs and cocktails. Here are our 10 alternative hen do ideas a bride-to-be will love. They’ll turn your last party as a single lady into an unforgettable experience!
Life drawing classes
Celebrate the strength and beauty of the male form with a life drawing class. Far from just sitting like a naked piece of furniture, our male life models have personality and humour and will help your hen do sizzle. They’ll wear as much or as little as you like!
Remember how much fun roller-skating was when you were young? Well, it’s even better as an adult! Roller-skating is having a revival and there are roller-skating disco sessions available around the UK. Lace up your skates, turn up the tunes of your youth, and prepare to laugh harder than you’ve done in years.
Celebrate the year of her birth, or the year you left high school
Giving your hen night or hen weekend a theme is a good way to instantly give everyone a bond. Depending on the ages of your guests, choose either the year of the bride-to-be’s birth, or the year you graduated from school or university, and theme your night around that.
Boost your body confidence and learn some new moves at a burlesque class. Burlesque is a high-class form of entertainment. It will certainly get your other half’s attention!
Get your pulse racing with an adventurous activity like going on a giant zip line, taking the biggest roller coaster at a theme park, or laughing yourself silly at a trampoline park.
Canal Barge weekend
Slow things down with a canal barge weekend. Gliding serenely along a canal is one of the best ways to see the countryside. Moor near a decent pub or restaurant, and breakfast to the sound of neighbouring ducks!
Time your summer hen do with a music festival and party all weekend to the sounds of world class bands. The Isle of Wight Festival, Glastonbury and Reading are just a few of dozens of festivals being held around the UK between June and September.
Make-up Hen Party
Get ready for a night on the tiles with a make-up lesson. Learning the tricks of the trade that will help you look and feel amazing is something you’ll always appreciate. You can either hire a professional to come to your home or hotel, or book a hen party package in a professional studio.
Sometimes you just want a night to catch up with your mates – especially if you haven’t seen some of them for ages. Having a night in can be great fun. And even more fun if you’ve hired a butler to serve the drinks! Chuck your favourite movie on and play drinking games. Relax, knowing you don’t have to queue for overpriced drinks because a naked butler will bring them to you!
Take on an assault course and work off some of those cocktail calories with your hen party. There’s no better way to unite your group than by getting everyone working together and supporting each other to achieve things they didn’t think were possible. Follow it up with a night out, a pampering session, or a fun meal.
