Coming soon to Channel 5 ‘Hen Nights’, a True North /GroupM Entertainment co-production. Prepare to be amused and entertained as we delve deep into the bosom of Britain’s Hen Parties.
The Hen and Stag trade is worth a massive £5 billion to the UK economy and in the last five years the average cost of a Hen Party has soared by 50%. Bride-to-bes’ celebrations are as much a British rite of passage now as first days at school – only much more fun! ‘Hen Nights’ raises the party bar to deliver unforgettable and legendary hen parties.
Each week, we follow three different Hens to cities such as Newcastle, Blackpool, Cardiff and Brighton to witness what happens on their last night of freedom. The hens will be leaving behind their boyfriends for 48 hours but we will be following what really happens when they let their hair down….
