1.Life Drawing Classes

life drawing

A Life Drawing Class is the perfect way to break the ice if you are planning a Hen Party, if you have guests that are not known to each other this is a perfect activity to do to get everyone talking and laughing – I mean what else will get people talking more than drawing a naked individual? You’ll have a model and instructor there to take you through the process and to create your own masterpiece. On arrival, you will be shown to the area and will be given art supplies to ensure you have everything you need to be as artistic as possible! The Hen or Guest of Honour can join in on the poses if they’re feeling extra brave! Life Drawing Classes are there for entertainment purposes only and should not be taken too seriously, it should be a funny, different activity that is slightly different to the norm! If you want an even cheekier activity, this can be upgraded to a Striptease Life Drawing Class which explains it all in the name…

2. Old School Sports Day

Old School Sports Day

This is an activity that everyone will love, even the people who didn’t particularly enjoy sports when they were at school! If your hen group have known each other a while and have developed a competitive side, this is the activity for you. You’ll be hit with nostalgia when you are taking part in the different activities which include Egg and Spoon Race, Sack Race and Tug of War! The Sports Day has an activity that everyone will love, we can even provide a Mr and Mrs Quiz halfway through the games! If you’re looking for an activity to relive your childhood memories, you should consider booking Sports Day.

3. Bubble MayHEN

Bubble MayHEN – The activity that will have you bumping, rolling, and falling over in hysterics! You’ll start the activity with a quick safety briefing, then the fun really does start – you’ll be strapped into a zorbing ball and split into teams, it is only the top half of your body in the zorbing ball so your legs will still be out; ensuring you have perfect opportunities to run at your opposing team and barge them out the way! The aim of the game is to steal the football from your opponents, sending them flying in the process. It really is an activity that must be seen to know just how funny it is. You’ll round off the game of football with some games made especially for hen parties, including Bump the Bride, and Last Woman Standing. We can also provide a Mr and Mrs Quiz halfway through the games for you to break the games up a little bit!

4. Archery MayHEN
