Ideas & Inspiration

Many couples nowadays are shooing away the traditional separate Stag and Hen Parties in favour of joint Sten or Hag parties, so we’ve put together our top Sten party ideas for you and your mates to all celebrate together before you get hitched!

Boat Party

If you’re holidaying abroad, this is a great idea. If you’re holidaying somewhere like Marbella or Ibiza, gather your friends together for a boat Sten party! Enjoy sun worshipping with a few cocktails and maybe even diving into the sea to cool off! A sunset over the sea wouldn’t go amiss either!

Assault Course

Tough Mudder style, if you have an active group of hens/stags, pit yourselves against one another and see who makes it out on top. Don’t forget the change of clothes though if you’re off out afterwards!


Gather your friends together for a paintballing experience you won’t soon forget. Pit Stags and hens against each other and shoot to the death! (or at least until everyone’s covered in paint). Paintballing is a great laugh and super light-hearted too. To add extra fun, why not add fancy dress into the mix!

Cookery Class

For those who want more of a relaxed vibe on their Sten party, a cookery class is a lovely idea. Fuelled with boozy drinks and chilled music as you work through the menu to create something gourmet, you’ll have a great time and will also have something to eat at the end of it.

Afternoon Tea

This is a lovely little quaint treat to appease the mums out there. It’ll also line your stomach before your night out! So grab those cucumber sandwiches and scones with clotted cream and chow down on fancy afternoon tea!

Cocktail Masterclass

Take part in a mixology class with professionals up and down the country. Cocktail making classes are a great ice-breaker if the hen/stag party don’t all know each other. You’ll have a blast mixing and shaking your new cocktail creations and will even make a few new friends at the same time.  You could also hire a mixologist to come to your home, so you can get boozy in a more relaxed atmosphere.

Spa Weekend

Many Spa hotels are now catering to Stens for their spa weekend packages. Ringwood Hall has a wonderful Garden Spa where your entire party can chill out, relax and enjoy a much-needed massage. So gather your group, grab your robes and enjoy some you time.

Go Karting

If you feel the need for speed, then this is a good one for you. Team Sport is the UK’s number 1 indoor Karting company and ensures you and your Sten party have a fab time as you race each other round the track. You can either take part in a formula one style 50 lap timed race, or a more relaxed Le Mans track run.

Sten Fest

Are you a lover of music festivals? Then why not create your own with Sten Fest? Courtesy of Go Hen, enjoy a glamping style retreat with hot tub hire, an acoustic band, private chef and in some locations, a silent disco! Get the glitter ready!
