Hen parties can be a little bit similar. You go out locally or abroad, drink, have dinner and then maybe end up in a club afterwards. Now there’s absolutely nothing wrong with this at all, after all there’s nothing better than grabbing your girlfriends and having a wild night, right?
A few weeks back we put together a list of top honeymoon destinations for you to visit. However we know some of you don’t want to do the whole “traditional” hen night fun, we therefore decided that we’d put together a list of quirky hen night ideas to help you have that unique night you’re looking for.
1. The Psychic
If you don’t want a night of partying, drinks and male strippers then you could gather your nearest and dearest and head down to see professional Psychic Lady Lilac.
This Psychic, real name Jacqui Cosham is said to have over 20 years experience of tarot card readings, spiritual communication and psychometry. She has also read for a range of actors, although we can’t t tell you who as we’re unfortunately not psychics.
She does a range of packages for Hen’s and will travel to hotel function rooms to hired areas within pubs and club within the M25.
Hens can pick from packages including tarot reading per person (30mins to an hour), birthstone for each guest or group or individual medium sessions.
She can also arrange a stay at a London hotel, incorporate the readings with massages, facials, manicures or pedicure and also sort out limousine rides and bar/club tickets.
Now I haven’t actually been to see her, but I will be trying to get an appointment soon so I can tell you a little bit more about the readings. And if she tells me I’m going to be the next queen of England then I may even be writing to you from my royal chamber.
2. The Festival
As we all know there are many festivals around the summer from the famous Glastonbury and Reading to dance festivals such as Global Gathering and Creamfields.
Ok we know what you’re thinking, rain, mud, queues for the smelly portaloos and a lack of hygiene. However, there’s a huge hen and stag following beginning with this idea as it lasts for at least two days. Yes you will have to pitch your tent, but think about the great music you’ll get to listen to and hey, wellies are always a huge trend over summer festival months too.
3. Charlie’s Angels
Give your hen night an extra dimension by surprising the hens with a mission to accomplish. The Stag and Hen Group will do as Charlie does and, irrelevant of location, will challenge you a list of tasks to complete. Failure to do so will result in serious forfeits. Missions might include collecting obscure items such as medallions, wigs, and bad-taste socks from unsuspecting victims.
4. Get down with the surf
Fancy yourself and your chums as a cool surfer girls? If so head down to Woolacombe in North Devon. Stay in accommodation facing the sea and also hone your surfer girl stance, with ex-Iron Man turned surf instructor, Nick Thorn, for a group surf lesson. If you’re feeling selfish you can also just get a one-to-one while the other girl’s chill out on the 3 mile stretch of sandy beach.
5. US high school cheerleading
Ever watched those US films with the popular teenage cheerleaders and wished you could have been the same? Well now’s your chance.
You and the girls will get your chance to try your hand at the hilarious sport of cheerleading. Big across the pond and making a breakthrough in the UK, learning the pom-pom shaking skills is both fun and more challenging than you would think, plus it’s something a little different for your hen party.
GoHen.com has introduced cheerleading classes to their hen party activity list. The classes are specially designed to cater for everyone from the complete novice to those who see themselves as a bit of a mover. All your equipment is included, and the friendly instructor will provide you with full instruction and guidance.
