McFly’s Harry Judd’s Chilled Stag Do

The Six Bells in Felsham, Suffolk, had a huge surprise last Friday night when McFly and 27 other friends and family turned up to celebrate Harry Judd’s stag do.

The chilled stag do was all about going down the local pub playing pool, darts and singing to tunes on the karaoke.

Locals drinking in the pub were shocked when the boys walked in, which also included Robbie Savage, who Harry befriended whilst competing in last year’s ‘Strictly’.

Harry is due to marry Izzy Johnston this year, however we think, at DesignaVenture that this won’t be his only stag do and his bandmates must have something up their sleeves.

We would like to wish Harry and his future wife best wishes for the future.

Another Fantastic Charity Stag Do

Two pals have decided to try and break 4 world records whilst celebrating Charlie Badderley’s stag do.

According to the Westmorland Gazette, Charlie’s stag do will attempt to break the following world records in aid of Help the Heroes:

First of all the stag party will try and beat the best time on space hoppers over 100 metres.

Then they will then try and eat more than 10 burgers in three minutes.

The third record attempt by this heroic stag party will be trying to achieve the fastest time to wrap one person in newspaper by an eight strong group.

And finally, Charlie, the stag, will try and crush the greatest number of eggs with his forehead in 30 seconds, he’s going to stink!

Eat your heart out Max Davidson (journalist from the Telegraph, the man’s a numpti), another fantastic good news stag do story.


If you are looking for a fantastic stag do destination, which has everything you want and more, get yourselves to Edinburgh.

The nightlife in Edinburgh is simply awesome, there are more bars then you can get around and if you need more time, the closing times in some pubs are somewhat relaxed to say the least.

If you need something to keep the boys from all day drinking on the Saturday then you will be over the moon on what’s on offer.

From usual stag activities such as Rage Buggies, Quad Biking and paintball to the best white water rafting in the UK to cliff jumping and the ever popular highland games.

If you came to sample a wee dram then the numerous Distillery Tours on offer will keep even the hardened Whisky drinker happy.

What’s that about keeping the stag party from drinking all day?

Well, you are in Scotland!

Keep The Boys Out of The Bars


What do you mean keep the boys out the bars, they are on a stag do?

OK, OK don’t get fiesty, listen I am not talking about at night, I am talking about throughout the day, usually a Saturday. T

he last thing you want is the groom peaking by 4pm and in bed by 7pm.

It’s simple, book an activity such as karting, paintballing, canyoning or something else ending in ing and have an easy manageable stag party ready for the big night out.

You don’t even have to book something energetic, book a game of golf or horse racing, mind you the latter may have the reverse effect as when the excitement of the first race gets you, you’ll need a pint!

Are you being served?

If you need a reason to book with DesignaVenture apart from the humongous amount of hen and stag packages and activities on offer then our first class, no messing customer service will be that very reason.

We believe in quality as well as quantity, we also know that cheaper is not always cheapest.

So, if you are looking to book a hotel in Nottingham for your stag do for example and there are two hotels available, the cheapest hotel is 2 miles out of the city centre, we will work out if the saving is cheaper than spending money on a cab in and out of the city centre. We will also give you the choice.

A new supplier approached us the other day with the mindset that he wanted to sell the cheapest stag activities in his chosen city. However, when we delved a little deeper, we found out that you only got 3 minutes on a quad bike, and only 5 shots whilst clay pigeon shooting, so we sent him packing.

Our top hen or stag do advice is; when booking, don’t just look at the price see what’s included in the package.

Stag Do Ideas For The Brave

If you are feeling like you need something to bond your stag party, an activity that puts the willies up the group (leave it) is a perfect solution.

Something like cliff jumping in the Highlands, Coasteering in Newquay or Gorge scrambling / Canyoning in Wales requires balls of steel and pure guts.

With loads of high rise jumps, traversing sheer rock faces and walking behind gushing waterfalls – any of the above mentioned stag activities will put hairs on your chest.

However, if you prefer to keep it motorized quad biking in North Wales is a hair-raising experience. The only thing between you and the bottom of a 60-foot drop is a narrow footpath and the grip of your quad bike.

White water rafting in the UK isn’t like racing down the Zambezi however, when its -2 degrees up in the Scottish Highlands I think Brave Heart comes to mind, surely capsizing in this weather is unthinkable?

So, if you are looking for more stag do ideas for the brave, look no further then the DesignaVenture website.
