Hens’ Parties and Activities

Ladies smiling and having fun making flower crowns for a hens' party

Looking for a hens’ party or day activity that isn’t the regular stripper show or boozy cruise? We can help you plan a special class for the bride-to-be, or arrange a whole day of activities in our space on Bennetts Lane or your selected venue. Make gorgeous flower crowns before setting off for lunch, learn Beyoncé’s Single Ladies choreography so you can kill it on the dance floor later in the night, or create polymer clay accessories to remember the special day. Whatever you want, we have you covered!

Our fun, casual classes are all one-off workshops and last around 75 minutes, which works great if you are planning a whole day or evening of activities. After you have confirmed the details and selected your class, please use the booking form below and we’ll send you an invoice for payment of the deposit. If you would like a different class to those listed below, please email us and we’ll let you know if it’s available.
