Fun ideas for your stag do or hen party in Manchester: roller skating, beer tasting, bottomless brunch & more
Here is a list of ideas for your stag or hen do, including a world-famous Oompah Show and a roller skating disco.
Summer is the perfect time to get married, and just before any great wedding comes the well-planned stag or hen party.
And of course there are plenty of experiences to enjoy in and around the music capital of the UK, from beer tasting and cocktail making, to football zorbing and roller skating.
So we have put together a list of the most exciting stag and hen activities in and around Manchester.
Bierkeller Oompah Show
Bierkeller, The Printworks, 27 Withy Grove, M4 2BS
Enjoy one of Bierkellers Oompah Shows as part of your stag do.
The world-famous shows include lots of singing, dancing, stomping, swaying and drinking - and a live performance from Oompah band, The Stompin’ Steiners.
Your stag group can get extra points for dressing up in Lederhosen.
For £15 per person, you can reserve the best benches for the show and it includes a beer, cider or cocktail stein (that’s a litre of alcohol each!).
For £30, you can get the above, as well as a miniature bottle of Jagermister and a Bavarian Wurst (a sausage) with a side of skin on fries.
Please note: The Oompah Band start at 8pm on a Saturday
Craft Beer Tour
International House, 61 Mosley St, M2 3HZ
Enjoy a walking tour through Manchester, with an expert guide and the chance to try and test craft beers at breweries and beer houses that are off the beaten path.
For £35 per person, your 3.5 hour guided tour includes a tasting of 10 craft beers (⅓ pints), a visit to four local venues and a talk about each drink by experts.
Please note: 50p from every person on the tour goes to Big Change Manchester, helping to eradicate homelessness in the city.
Football Zorbing (also known as Bubble Football)
Two Manchester venues - indoors and outdoors
Football is an extremely popular sport, but imagine playing football inside a giant inflatable bubble - it makes tackling, and just running, much harder.
For only £28 per person, you can enjoy a five-a-side game of bubble football with your stag party.
They have an outdoor venue in the Northern Quarter and an indoor venue in the Trafford area - both have an onsite bar and changing facilities.
They also offer Bubble MayHEM at both venues which is more football games, and less actual football.
Please note: There is a minimum of 10 people for a game of football zorbing, and any smaller groups will still be charged for 10 people.
Burger & Beer at Yates’
Yates, 49 Portland Street, M1 3LA or Yates, The Printworks, 27 Withy Grove, M4 2BS
