Top 10 Hen Do events

So we may not all be able to afford to party like supermodel Bar Refaeli and head to the Maldives for a sun soaked hen weekend, however if you are planning your own event and want to ensure that the bride to be has the time of her life, here are some tips for the best hen party activities. Whether you prefer a traditional, classic afternoon tea or like to let things get a little wild, there is something to suit all tastes and budgets.


Burlesque Dancing

One of the great benefits of burlesque dancing is that it is great exercise, plus you can pick up some great moves that will definitely come in handy when you get home! Companies such as Go Hen offer burlesque dancing lessons that are perfect for beginners.


Life Drawing

Perfect your artistic skills with a life drawing class, if you can manage to stifle the giggles you will learn from the experts how to really accentuate and capture the human form. Plus you get to take home your drawing to stick on the fridge!



Why should the boys have all the fun? Gather your hens and head to one of the many paintball courses that are around the country. It’s a great stress reliever and group bonding experience. Try one of the biggest paintball centres in the UK, Delta Force Sheffield.


Disco Dodgeball

A fairly new idea but one that we can’t wait to try! Xtreme Events run disco dodgeball events, combining the fun of dodgeball with disco lights and 70’s tunes. It really is the perfect way to unwind and get into the disco spirit, whilst avoiding being knocked out by a ball!


Cocktail Making

Get into the spirits with a cocktail making class with your hens. Learn how to make the classics and experiment to make a cocktail that really sums up the bride to be! Many bars offer this activity from Revolution Sheffield to independents like the Forum, so keep your eyes peeled.


Spa Day

Let’s be honest, before the wedding the one thing that the bride to be wants is to feel relaxed. So why not treat her to a spa break at a gorgeous retreat? Splash out on some treatments and a glass of bubbly, perfection!


Topless Waiters

Even if you decide just to go for a meal with your fellow hens, there is nothing to say that you can’t liven things up a little! If you do not want to go with a traditional strip act, why not hire topless waiters to come in and serve your meals?


It’s a Knockout

Fans of the classic 80’s TV show will love taking part in an obstacle course that mimics activities from the show. Avoid inflatables and try and make your way through the course with the rest of your hens, why not take part as a team against another hen party.


Pole Dancing

A little bit raunchy but pole dancing is a very popular choice for hens wanting to try something different. Learn some of the basic moves and find out what it takes to put together a routine. Just like burlesque dancing, this is a great workout! A Pole New Adventure on Carver Street in Sheffield is a great shout.


Afternoon Tea

Finally, what better way to spend time with your favourite ladies than by having afternoon tea in a picturesque location? With traditional cakes, sandwiches, scones and of course, a few glasses of sparkling wine, you will be hard pushed to find a better way to unwind.
