Patchwork quilt workshop – This is one of the most heart-warming hen ideas we’ve come across: you and your hens work together to create a perfectly pretty patchwork quilt, giving you a lovely memento. The experts at The Crafty Hen will show you exactly what to do – novice crafters welcome! – and provide a range of fabrics and embellishments. You can even theme the quilt around all the hens’ relationships with the bride. Truly delightful. From £32 per person, minimum group size of 10.
The London Cabaret Club – If you’re looking for a last minute hen do idea this winter, look up the Christmas Winter Wonderland at The London Cabaret Club, as well as the usual showstopping acts, there’s a candy cane forest and an adult Milk and Cookies pop up bar. Guests enter the candy cane forest through a secret door, concealed by cosy winter coats (The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, anyone?!) Candy canes hang from fir trees (just try and stick to the wedding diet…) and the room is strewn with brightly wrapped presents, twinkling lights and scented with festive peppermint – if that’s not a magical hen do, we don’t know what is!
