Our wine tastings are entertaining and good fun, pitched at a level that ensures all the hens learn something new about wine and, most importantly, have a great time doing so, read more »

Thinking of hen party ideas can sometimes prove to be something of a nightmare for the chief bridesmaid, when trying to arrange something sophisticated and classy, yet fun, for a group of people who may not have already been acquainted. The hen understandably wants all those closest to her to help her celebrate her last night of freedom, and this can include family members, friends and even close colleagues. The prospect can seem quite daunting, but wine tasting hen parties are a great way to break the ice and have a memorable experience at the same time.

At ThirtyFifty we are renowned for making hen night ideas easier. We blend informative presentation with fun challenges to ensure the laughter flows as fast as the wine. Choosing us for your hen party ideas might even result in you picking up a few handy hints and tips about how to choose the best wines for yourself in the future.

We want to make the whole experience of thinking up hen night ideas as stress free for you as possible so we provide hen parties in the afternoon or evening to hold as the main event, or fit around any other exciting things you might have scheduled for the bride to be!

Classy Hen Night Ideas

One of our most popular hen party ideas is our Classic Hen Party Tasting package. At a reasonable £35 per person, you get the opportunity to sample every girl’s idea of heaven- wine and chocolates! As well as teaching you the basics of blind tasting, we also throw in a variety of interactive challenges, such as our infamous Champagne Challenge, or our Wine Aromas Guessing Game. Just be prepared for the wild and inaccurate estimates of your guests! Just one example of how we bring a modern twist to the age old origins of wine tasting.

Whilst our main objective is to make sure the hen and her guests have a great time, you’re also guaranteed to learn something new. The energetic hosts for our hen parties show you how to judge a wine based on its colour. You may be interested to learn that heavy wines are deeper in colour, whilst you can tell a sweet wine from the streaks that will appear down the side of your glass when swirled gently.

Hen Party Activities

All of our four hen party tasting activities last approximately two hours and allow you to tailor your hen night ideas to your own budget. We also cater for anyone from beginners, to the more experienced as our hen parties are designed to be at a level that can be enjoyed by everyone.

ThirtyFifty is an excellent choice if you are searching for hen night ideas to be enjoyed in the comfort of your own home, or if you have a favourite restaurant or hotel in mind. For anyone stuck for ideas for the perfect location for their hen parties, we will be only too happy to assist you with hen party ideas and venues.

Designed with fun in mind

We've designed a special range of wine tastings with hen parties in mind that can be fitted into the party schedule or become the main event for the hen party, in the afternoon or evening.

Choose your venue

Usually for a hen party, the wine tasting is held at home, at a weekend cottage or at a restaurant, depending on what is being planned. We can recommend a venue - provided you eat there, many restaurants will happily provide their private room free of charge. Depending on location there may be a small charge for travel.

What our Hens say...

Thanks for the wine tasting at our Hen Party on Sat! It was a great way to get a bunch of strangers having a good time together. You made it informative and fun at the same time and you were able to cope with us very well!! It was also a great introduction to some quality wines for us novices. All in all it was very entertaining and the highlight of the day."

Maxine K

"Saturday's wine tasting was a huge success and beyond all my expectations. Camilla's wine knowledge was outstanding and kept calm and relaxed in front of a bunch of giggling girls heightened by the arrival of our butler! I have no hesitation at recommending 30/50. "
