We’ve been getting connected with party planners, Freedom, they’ve been sending parties to York since 1996 and are industry leaders in the world of hen and stag parties.

We were interested to hear from MD Mike Wood about what was unusual, new and available for York stag weekends and hen parties in York.

He told us firstly that the demand for unusual accommodation was on the increase, Freedom’s sales team had noticed more and more customers asking for accommodation away from the norm. Well that’s all music to our BEDROAM ears.

Freedom pride themselves in offering a vast array of variety in terms of unusual hen activities and alternative stag party activities. Mike has noticed over the years that traditions are there to be broken, whilst pampering for the ladies and paintball for the gents will always remain popular, there are new kids on the block offering something a bit different. It could be unusual, unconventional, unexpected or taking a walk on the crazy side.

Stunt Driving – yes, really, you get behind the wheel and have a go.
Megamix – why decide on 1 activity when you can have several.
TV Movie Tours – calling all lovers of Emmerdale.
Flash Mob Dance – you learn the dance and then surprise all the guests at the wedding reception.
Perfume Creation – well the celebs are all at it, why not you?

Thinking about tomorrow is on Freedom’s agenda and so always on the lookout for what’s new and going to be a hit. In York they’ve just added Afternoon Tease, a treat for the ladies in that a semi naked butler serves your afternoon tea, so delights all round. It would seem alcohol accompanies most hen and stag dos, so Gin Tasting and Bottomless Lunch (free flowing Prosecco) will do down a storm.
