The Naked Chocolatier Party involves audience participation (ooh err), as you’ll be mixing, piping, dipping and decorating your own mouthwatering truffles.

Of course, you’ll do all this alongside the Naked Chocolatiers. Your spectacular companions will give you tips and tricks for creating your masterpiece, whilst wearing a teeny tiny apron. You can even bring your own drinks which they’ll pour and serve for you. This is what dreams are made of.

Hen Party Activities Your Mother-in-Law Will Enjoy

Your hen do may be a huge celebration, but not every mother-in-law wants to come face to face with a stripper, or anything else. If you are trying to make a good impression, Last Night of Freedom has thought of everything. Lauren has rounded up the best hen party activities your mother-in-law will enjoy. But, feel free to book those strippers…

London Bus Afternoon Tea Tour

Capture the capital’s charm on board a red, double-decker bus.

London Bus Afternoon Tea Tour Hen Party Activity

Afternoon tea on a bus is quintessentially British, and this vintage vehicle will take you around London’s greatest sights – with the addition of lashings of tea.

You’ll go on a whirlwind tour of The London Eye, Big Ben, Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, St James’ Park, Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park, The Royal Albert Hall, Marble Arch, Piccadilly Circus, Nelson’s Column and even more, under the guidance of a uniformed London bus driver.

Of course, this is all going on whilst tucking into a selection of tasty sandwiches, pastries and cakes – in the delightfully kitsch interior, boasting red booths and twinkling lights. Your mother-in-law will have never been so happy.

ABBA Dance Class

Take the Mil (mother-in-law for those not in the know) all the way back to her youth on your hen weekend, with an ABBA dance class.

Dancer Dressed in 70's Clothing

The swinging 70s were a better time – all flares, perms and hairy chests – and ABBA was the very best. That all-singing, all-dancing husband and wife (recipe for disaster) group spawned some of the best moves of the decade, and we’re still trying to emulate them. This class will take you from 0 to Dancing Queen, and the winner really will take it all, as the star dancer wins a bottle of bubbly.

Boho Bounce

Boho-inspired weddings have been popular for many years now, and 2017 seems to be no exception. And why should it? The opportunity to wear a crown (albeit one made out of flowers) is irresistible and, of course, mega-stylish!

Soft Waves Wedding Hairstyle with Zara Forehead Band

Your wedding is an opportunity to be a princess for the day, and floral hair vines are the perfect accessory for a princess. Think pearls and crystals with soft waves, and don’t be scared to give your hair some added volume to make it bounce.

Braid It Up

If you have decided on a pin-up for your wedding day then it should definitely include a braid or two. While braids are simple to do, they add a healthy dose of drama to your effortlessly stylish look. They are perfect for achieving a day to night look.

TV Inspired Hen Party Ideas

Freedom have been in the business of organising fabulous hen parties for over 20 years. Mike, the MD of Freedom since 1996, has identified various hen party options that have taken their inspiration from TV shows…

We’re a nation of TV lovers – fact! We knew it was possible to take a TOWIE tour; actually it’s on our ‘to do’ list. But it got us thinking about the other TV inspired hen parties available.

TOWIE – Essex and Marbella (Marbs)

Let’s start with TOWIE as we’ve already mentioned it, and Essex is home to Freedom. Essex has jumped up the popular UK Hen Weekend Locations leader board, and we believe that’s thanks to the blinged-up, bejazzled cast of this addictive TV show. Shop, drink and of course party where the TOWIE cast do… cameras ready.

TV film camera

No carbs before Marbs has become a mantra now for any hens considering taking their hen weekend abroad. Join the jet set for a hen weekend of champagne spraying beach parties, catamaran booze cruises and clubbing til dawn.

Made in Chelsea – London

London just cemented its top spot by luring in the TV lovers with the chance of a Made in Chelsea hen party tour.

Kensington Chelsea sign

Fans of the show cannot resist an opportunity to see up-close the chic and exclusive world of the Chelsea, Prada bag carrying, Jimmy Choo shoe wearing, high society; to see where they hang out, dine and drink and follow in the footsteps of the rich, famous and elite residents of SW3.

Our Hen Party Treasure Hunt Experience with Hunt Fun

If you are looking for something a bit different for your hen or stag party then a Hunt Fun treasure hunt is a really fun daytime activity.

I recently organised my sister’s hen weekend in Bath. There was a group of ten of us, and some girls knew each other and some had never met before. I wanted to find an activity for the Saturday daytime that would be fun, different, would have everyone involved and that no one would have done on a hen party before. We could have gone for a soak in Bath Spa, but I had other plans.

Whilst searching for fun activities in Bath, I came across Hunt Fun, who organise treasure hunts across the county. To be honest, I did wonder if the girls would want to walk around Bath with a map and clipboard. However, Hunt Fun is different to the traditional treasure hunts you might be picturing right now.

GPS Treasure Hunts

Hunt Fun offers GPS treasure hunts in over 200 cities and towns across the UK. There are many different themes you can choose from; hen or stag, 80’s retro, sport, spies and more. The questions are then tailored for your event and city.

We chose the hen party treasure hunt theme. As well as general knowledge questions we had questions about celebrity couples, and even had to find something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue.

As the hunt is on GPS it’s fully interactive, so you use your phone or tablet instead of a clipboard.

Hunt fun treasure hunt features

Each team logs into the account created for your event. All teams have the same questions dotted around the city/town so you can go off in any direction to find them. The questions are marked on the map in little circles, and if you want to play with a ‘winning’ strategy (this activity really showed who the competitive ones are!) there are different coloured circles, each with different point scores (i.e. the gold ones are worth more points than the bronze ones). During the hunt there are also some ‘selfie’ questions where you have to take a selfie as your answer.
