Easter Opening Hours 2018

Easter is early this year, in fact it’s so early we might see a white Easter if the weather people are right – a revisit from the Beast from the East apparently!

And talking about the beast from the east have you checked out our lap dancing packages in Riga? Only joking, sorry, this is a more serious post about our Easter opening hours:

Good Friday 30th March 2018 – Closed (Bank Holiday)

Easter Saturday 31st March 2018 – Open Usual times, 9am to 1pm

Easter Sunday 01st April 2018 – Closed

Easter Monday 02nd April 2018 – Closed (Bank Holiday)

As always, all groups partying over the Easter weekend will have our out of hours telephone number should they need to get hold of us.

Tips For Booking Your Weekend

The activity hen and stag weekends have gone crazy, plenty of hen and stag parties are booking up their weekends to remember for the 2018 spring / summer season.

Here are some top tips to make your booking experience a breeze:

  • If you are booking a non-flight inclusive package outside of 5 weeks, we don’t actually need your confirmed numbers at the time of booking.
  • Choose the perfect date be carful of busy weekends at your chosen hen or stag destination. For example; trying to get a stag party into a hotel in Cardiff when Wales are playing at home, for the 6 nations Rugby, is like trying to convince Nigel Farage to live in France!
  • Don’t pay for anyone in the group who you don’t know or is really untrustworthy.
  • Don’t get stressed when people drop out, a good third drop out from an average invited list, adopt the attitude; ah well, if they don’t get back to me, it’s their loss!
  • Let DesignaVenture take the strain, one phone call and we have your back.
  • Create a group on WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, Email whatever, that way you can keep everyone in the loop, let the banter begin!

We have loads of tips for stag parties on our Stag Do Blog, get amongst it.

Top Tips When Booking A Hen Or Stag Weekend in Brief:

  • Book Early
  • Communicate
  • Be Aware Of T&C’s
  • Don’t Get Stressed
  • Let DesignaVenture Take The Stress

Winter Bites – Stag & Hens Bite Back!

Even though we are going through a particularly cold snap at the moment, DesignaVenture must doff it’s cap to all it’s hardy stag and hen parties who have been more than adventurous despite the weather.

We have stag groups braving the chill and taking on white water rafting and the incredible Zip Wire in North Wales this and last weekend.

They’ve been racing Rage Buggies in Nottingham and whisky tasting in Edinburgh and not to mention partying in Riga where it’s minus, in the day!

Hen parties are thrashing about on Quad Bikes in Bournemouth, Cocktail making in Bristol and racing Segways in Reading and not to mention life drawing where it’s going to be a bit nippy for the real life male model, let’s hope it’s not too cold!

Whatever winter throws at you, get out there and be adventurous – it will be the making of a very memorable weekend.

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

A hen party blowing a kiss

“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.

Stag Do In Sheffield With DesignaVenture

Sheffield

We have added a new city to our ever expanding stag do destinations and IT”S…. wait for it….. Sheffield – streamers, balloons, party poppers all went off courtesy of the Mayor of Sheffield, Denise Fox, OK she doesn’t know we’ve added Sheffield to our stag destinations however I am sure she’ll be pleased!

The DesignaVenture team are frantically putting together packages, meeting up with hotels, lap dancing clubs, activity sites and nightclubs to bring you the very best stag dos Sheffield.

We have stag packages in Sheffield starting from £62.00 per person 

“How lively is Sheffield?”

That’s a great question, imagine a city with two universities, yes, two universities. Then imagine the amount of bars you need to cater for that may students?

What about nightclubs, students love to party, at the last count I counted over 20 clubs (that also includes gentleman’s clubs), shish, 20 clubs, a weekend is just not enough.

There are also some fantastic activity sites near Sheffield, from racing karts, shooting guns to racing quads, playing Bubble football, there’s enough to keep even the hardiest stag group entertained and out the pub.

Take a look at our activities in Sheffield

Here are some facts:

  • Sheffield is home to the Arctic Monkeys, Pulp, The Human League and Def Leopard
  • Devision Street is the place to hang out if you want to be cool
  • Sheffield’s river is called the River Sheaf, where it get’s it’s name from
  • Sheffield is well famous for Steel, I mean well famous, like.. init
  • If you’re a big snooker fan, Sheffield is home to the world famous Crucible, cough, cough, it’s a bit smokey in there, well is used to be!
  • People will call you love and if your a bit narked off then they’ll call you Mardy.
  • When you’re hangover, head over to Street Food Chef, apparently according to students cures hangovers

Why Book With DesignaVenture

There are plenty of companies out there where you can book your stag or hen do, you can even do it yourself (“state the bleeding obvious” badge goes to me) however this is an important weekend, it must go to plan.

You need a solid wingman, someone you can trust to make sure everything goes off without any issues, well that’s where DesignaVenture step in and take that place.

Arranging hen parties and stag dos since 2003, DesignaVenture know how to get it right, we have won the “Getting It Right” Competition since 2003 and we will never rest on our laurels. We will always strive to make sure the only hitch will be on the wedding day and not your special celebratory weekend.

Not only can you use the DesignaVenture website to book online, pay individually, view your booking, invite people onto the weekend; you will also see that we advertise prices, unlike quite a few of our competitors. You can even Build your own stag do, or hen party without having to give us an ounce of your personal details, unless you want to that is. Not one of our other competitors allows you to do that!

We pride ourselves on outstanding customer service, we have 9.2 out of 10 on our Trustpilot score and the way we see it, is; we make friends, not customers.

Once booked, the loving doesn’t stop there, you will have a group of dedicated staff at your beck and call and whilst on your weekend we have an out of hours phone number just in case you need some extra help.

So to square all this off, to summaries, to come to some sort of conclusion if you are looking to book a stag do or hen party you are definitely in the right place, however if you’re looking for a Vacuum Cleaner how the hell did you get here?

Good luck and we look forward to hearing from you.
