The BBC recently examined the phenomenon of the hen do, hen party.  Call it what you will.  The hen night/party/weekend is now massive and growing despite the economic downturn and the roots of hen party tradition in the UK go back further than in the US.  In fact the phrase ‘hen party’ dates back to the 1800’s to denote a gathering of females, but there was no wedding context.

Today, the hen party/weekend or ‘do’ is huge and rarely bypassed by any ‘bride to be’.  The main change to the whole format though is the degree of choice available to hen parties.  For instance, if you’re looking to stage a hen do weekend in beautiful Derbyshire and the Peak District, you could combine any selection of outdoor activities, from motorsports to watersports.  You could also combine any of these with our relaxation and low exertion activities which include; a cookery experience, horse riding and trekking, pamper parties, tarot reading and even nude life drawing.

The point is; the momentum behind the hen night/party/weekend is building and building and the choice of activities is becoming broader and more exciting.  To plan a truly bespoke Derbyshire and Peak District hen do weekend that your party will buzz off for months to follow, get in touch with Hard Days Knight today!
