More About Hen Do axe throwing...

axe throwing hen party activity

If you're looking to kick this hen do up a notch and try something many of the girls have never tried before, then this all-action York hen party Axe Throwing session is the way to go! Prithee, come hither, grab an axe, and learn how to throw like a Viking…

You and the girls may be used to modern-life luxuries and home comforts, but underneath all that is an inner Viking diva just dying to get out! You've got the strength, you've got your girls, and we're hoping you've got the Viking outfits on fleek, but what the hell are you meant to do with a 3.5 lbs axe? That's where our experts come in.

They'll introduce you to the axes, go through a vital safety briefing, and give you some top tips on how to throw these bad-ass metal axes through the air with razor-sharp accuracy. The coaches will work with each hen individually to ensure everyone is ready and raring for the ultimate competition. Once you've had a twenty-minute practice and got into the swing of things, it's time to get your game faces on.

For forty fierce and hilarious minutes, you'll be putting your single and two-handed throwing skills to the test. Two Vikings will throw at the same time and score each time their axe hits the target. The player who scores the most shall win the Viqueen crown and happily rule over the peasant hens until the end of time!

Obviously, you can't hurl these beasts throw the air on an empty stomach, you'll need some fuel. That's why you'll receive Nordic-inspired nibbles: small plates of tasty meatballs and sauces along with potato dumplings and other tasty treats.

Please note: No opened toed shoes or loose hair, you've got to bring the bride-to-be home in one piece for the wedding!
