Stag Night

Stag Night


The tradition of stag night goes back to Henry Vlll where he would command you to attend his celebrations by a town crier or letter on the pain of death.


Some people believe the stag night goes back to the 5th century where it was tradtional for the Spartans to hold a banquet in honour of the groom to celebrate his last night as a single man.

A bachelor party may involve activities beyond the usual party and social gathering ingredients (often drinking alcohol and gambling), such as going to a strip clubs or hiring a stripper, and, in some traditions, more hazing -like tests and pranks at the groom’s expense, performed as a rite of passage from bachelorhood (associated with an adolescent lifestyle, often in the common past of most participants, e.g. in their student years) to the “more responsible” marital life.

The task of organizing a bachelor party is often traditionally assigned to a male sibling of the bachelor or to the best man. Otherwise, any male friend will organize it. The planned activities of a bachelor party are traditionally kept secret from the groom.
