Prince Harry’s Stag Do

White Water Rafting with North Wales wording

When Prince Harry asked Megham Markle to marry him the immediate response from the public and press was not about the amazing wedding dress or they’re going to make a marvellous couple (although, they are), NO… word on the street was – it’s going to be one hell of a stag do!

We all remember the Prince’s antics on other stag dos and holidays in Vegas etc. so he has the reputation of a party Prince. I think Prince Andrew had a similar rep in the 80s but the big difference is Prince Harry breathes charisma, he is incredibly likeable and that’s why the general public love him.

Of late Prince Harry has grown up and isn’t that party animal he used to be, so his stag do will reflect on his current state of mind.

We think that Adventure would be at the heart of his stag with white water rafting, canyoning, having a go on the fastest zip wire in the world, racing Rage Buggies, shooting clays out of the sky etc.

It’s only right that his stag destination should be in the UK, with that in mind North Wales we think hits the mark (his Dad is the Prince of Wales, after all).

North Wales is a destination of total exhilaration and adventure, with activities from motor sports to full on adrenalin pursuits, North Wales basically has it all.

He will also benefit from traffic free roads and a massive amount of secluded party houses and hotels to choose from, which DesignaVenture can help organise by the way, along with the activities of course. Take note though, March and April is already very busy so booking now is essential, well it wouldn’t be right turfing groups out just to fit his party in, we wouldn’t do that, not even for royalty.

The best stag do game

Football is the beautiful game, most people would agree however stag do games will have you all in stitches, make you incredibly enthusiastic and will usually make you fairly drunk (drinking responsibly that is).

The best stag do game in my mind is Chicken Run.

What are the rules?

“OK I am just getting to that, keep your tights on!!!”

THE RULES

You dress the stag up as a chicken, the more embarrassing the costume, the better.

You also give the stag the kitty and 40 minutes to hide – he has to find a pub / bar or club, sit at the bar or table and drink as much of the kitty as possible.

After 40 minutes, the stag group then must split into teams and go and search for the chicken I mean the stag, before he drinks the kitty dry.

No one can drink a single drop until they find the stag, the teams that find him can start drinking from the kitty, the game ends when the whole group is united.

OK, I am glad you have asked me that question, we have a membership area on our website which you have the use of, just simply go to your booking and invite people to pay their £30 deposit – that way people have committed and put it in their diary and even started to budget for it.

How To Go For Free!

Man with beard opens his shirt to reveal a moustacheEveryone loves something for free especially something as amazing as a stag do or hen party.

On that basis we have decided to improve our free place offer to cover all bookings, click on the images for further details or keep reading as this may be your ticket to a free place on your stag do.

Stag to go for free

Hen to go for free

Before, in order to get a free place you had to book for a minimum of 2 nights, now it applies to all bookings. Whether you stay for 1 or 2 nights, just book accommodation or just want an activity day, providing you get the numbers the stag or hen will go for free.

So how many people do you need to attend your whole event:

Well you need:

20 people or more (including the stag or hen) and you’ll get a free place

15 people or more (including the stag or hen) you get a half price place

“What happens if we have less than 20 people and we want to pay for the stag/hen?”

That’s easy, whatever the hen or stag’s price is, you can simply split this cost over the confirmed numbers of the group, we offer an individual payment option so people can pay us directly which would include the stag or hen’s contribution.

Once booked, in your membership area on the DesignaVenture website you are given the flexibility to put in whatever price you like when sharing the booking, so things couldn’t be easier to get the stag or hen’s price covered.

A Stag Do For Charity

Lots of stags happen throughout the year, they mainly consist of lots of activities, drinks and fun and why not, this is your last days of being a free-man, however some grooms have other things on their mind.

Bridegroom Rob Cocker recently found out that one of his oldest mates (David Deakin) had been diagnosed with Sarcoma, which is a rare form of Cancer, just to let you know that people with this horrible disease are given 1 – 3 years.

So he turned his stag do into a fundraising event collecting more than £3,000 for Sarcoma UK and also raising awareness for this horrible disease.

The stag group walked for 4 days averaging about 17 miles a day, even though there was a serious message to this stag do, they still managed to have a few beers and a right laugh.

They finished their walk at The Riverside in Ilkley, there to greet them was David and 40 of his family and friends giving them a rapturous welcome.

If you would like to donate please go to the Justgiving website.

This is just another great Charity stag do story, we have many of them on this news feed collected over the years from mainly local press stories. It’s a shame that the national papers don’t pick up on this side of the stag do instead focusing on the badly behaved stag do stories.

Unfortunately, according to the just giving website David Deakin has now passed.
