Hen and stag party provider Chillisauce has released its top trends report for 2019 with surprising results. 

Data revealed that classic destinations remain wildly popular, while groups are expanding their horizons and bringing growth to new, non-traditional stag and hen activities.

Despite the impending Brexit changes, the stag and hen industry appears to be unaffected. More than half (57%) of stag groups chose from more than 30 cities in Europe as their party destination, while 71% of hens chose to stay closer to home and enjoy a host of UK cities.

2018 was a popular year for Liverpool, as 20% of hens flocked to this buzzing city for a wide range of activities, while Brighton was preferred by 18% of hens and Cardiff came in third at 11%.

For the stags, colourful European cities, such as Amstadam, promising cheap pints and a vibrant nightlife are top choices. Prague was the most popular destination, closely followed by Budapest. 

As well as destination choices, the report also revealed what each party would prefer to get up to. Stags are becoming increasingly more active with fun experiences seeing an 800% increase in 2018, in contrast with bar crawls which have decreased by 20%.

For the hens, indulgent pamper days fell by 60% compared to 2017. Instead, escape rooms are up by 267% in the UK and 188% in Europe, as well as treasure hunts which have soared by 74% in popularity.
