Girly Hen Night IdeasPosted by Hay Brunsdon on May 8 2015.
Its time to reclaim the traditional girly hen night
The past few years has seen a rise in the number of Hag parties – which involves the bride and groom arranging a joint hen and stag do. Such unorthodox events usually take place in the form of something far too energetic for our liking; Segway Riding, Golf (and not even Pub Golf, for that matter) or even a naff Dog Racing Day Out.
Banishing the boys and getting back to basics does not have to be boring, here are our top tips for planning your good, old-fashioned girly hen night.
Girly Hen Night; Night In
Our top pick is Cocktail Making In The House, which works fabulously as a pre-going out event and a girl’s night in alike. On your Hen night you deserve nothing less than VIP treatment! Why bother waiting to be served in a cramped bar when you can learn how to make exceptional cocktails from the comfort of your own home or privately hired accommodation?
Our charming cocktail specialist will come along to your own private venue with a mobile bar to teach you how to mix up a classic martini-based creation, a fun layered challenge as well as Latin-inspired beverage. Discover your mixology talents before sitting back to enjoy 3 cocktails each; guaranteed to be a barrel of laughs!
Why not select a few of your favourite movies and enjoy the rest of the night in with a group of your best mates, a few beauty treatments and some delicious posh popcorn – try Joe and Seph’s for an amazing G&T flavoured gourmet popcorn – ideal for watching tearjerkers like The Notebook or Dear John.
Girly Hen Night; Night Out
For those of you who don’t want to stay in for a night of movies, you can enjoy the a sleepover classic; Dirty Dancing as an immersive cinema experience this summer in London, and can make for a classic girly hen night .
Having turned Barnes Common into the Grease’s Rydell High at their sell-out shows last summer, Future Cinema will return to transform a secret outdoor East London location into Kellerman’s Holiday Camp. Swoon over the late, much-missed Patrick Swayze, marvel at how much better Jennifer Grey looked before her nose-job, and of course to join in with a mass dance-a-long to one of the most iconic dance scenes in movie history. You know the one.
Such an alternative evening is the perfect way to finish off a decidedly girly day out – once you’ve attended our Dirty Dancing hen party, of course. Learn fun routines from the film including some classic moves, fancy dress encouraged but watermelon; optional.
Our top picks are all about ditching the lads on your last night of freedom to truly have the “time of your life”. Polestars’ activities are so much fun that men are desperate to get in on the action too.
