Hills Bucks/Stag outing
Suitable for 4 to 40+ blokes
Oh yes, one last hoorah for the “lucky” man. Beers, boobs and bollocks galore – a big send off for your mate in peril. Our experience shows that a schedule similar to the “Celebration” tour format above works well. Assuming we are starting prior to noon, then one venue of specific interest could feature first up (a craft brewery or distillery perhaps), followed by a hearty lunch and a pub crawl. Simple, flexible and fun. And sorry, no, we don’t include a pick-up from the holding cells the next morning. 😉
