Why have a Manchester Stag Party?

There’s so many reasons to have a Manchester Stag Party, we’re going to have a little trouble narrowing it down to just the best ones! Firstly, the night life! The night life in Manchester is incredible, from bars and pubs to night clubs, there’s something for everyone! I mean really, you can’t go wrong here. Additionally, there’s some seriously amazing restaurants in this northern city, making the experience all the better!

Now, the bit we’re really here for – the activities! What would a Stag Do be without some fun and competitive activities? Bonus points if you can stitch up the Stag! There’s so much available here, that whether you’re a local or have travelled for the event, you’ll be able to find something new and exciting to do! It’s never boring in Manchester!

Top 5 Manchester Stag Party Activities

1. Bubble Football

As crazy as its name suggests, Bubble Football is a hilarious version of the classic game! Once you’ve strapped yourself into your own bubble suit, you’re ready to go! In this version of the beautiful game, rather than tackle, you’ll use the more effective barge to win the ball off your opponents! However, beware when you’re in control of the ball, as a barge could come from any direction!

2. Archery Combat

If you’re looking for an action packed and adrenaline fueled activity, then look no further than Archery Combat! This activity is a hybrid of archery and dodgeball, and is more action packed than you ever expected! You’ll get to bring our your competitive side as you face off against your group in the Archery Battlezone! However, make sure that you become the hunter and not the hunted! Get ready for the arrows to start flying!

3. Tree Top Adventure

Get ready for hours of daring ropes, course challenges, stomach-churning swings and electrifying zip wires! Complete with heights of up to 30 metres, prepare yourself for a day of blood-pumping high rope activities that are sure to test your nerve! If you’re a little nervous, then there’s no need to worry! The tribe are at hand to fully prepare you and spur you on. After all, it is a Stag Do, so why not go for it!

4. Old School Sports Stag Games

If you’re looking for a sporty event with a bit of competition, then look no further! Why not enjoy a day reliving your childhood with Old School Sports Stag Games! Once you’ve been split into houses, you’ll then get to take part in a range of nostalgic games including Tug of War, Sack Race, Three-Legged Race and Wheelbarrow Race. However, as you’re cheered on by your teammates make sure you’re the champions and not collecting the wooden spoon at the end!

5. Stitch up the Stag Life Drawing

Okay, so we know what you’re thinking. Life Drawing probably isn’t the activity you had in mind for a Stag Do. However, what if we told you that you could stitch up the Stag? In this version of the activity, the Stag will be the model! After all, aren’t Stag Dos all about embarrasing the guest of honour as much as possible? With an art tutor present to guide you through different drawing styles as the Stag poses for everyone, it’ll be the funniest activity of the weekend!
