Reviews for Birmingham hen activities

Nude Life Drawing with a Male Model

Incredibly funny, excellent experience.

Ash Chauhan
Dirty Dancing

The instructor was brilliant. We had such a great time

Nicky Clark
Zombie Boot Camp

The story about the rage virus is great, knowing that we are going to rescue scientists and soldiers and being advised on how to rescue them gives you a real buzz. It was a shame that we weren't actually rescuing anybody when it came to the event itself though. Don't get me wrong, being battered by the big guys and throwing our weight around with the smaller ones is fun, it would have been even better if we were able to work together and rescue at least one person (given that the briefing told us what to expect and how to save somebody)

Aj Caldwell
Cocktail Making with Two Course Meal
