Record number stag and hen parties to hit UK in May.

London, May 7 ( ANI ): Record numbers of stag and hen parties will flock to towns and cities across the UK this month, an event agency has revealed.

According to figures from event agency, the company estimates that more than 220,000 revellers will descend on popular destinations around the country throughout May, as brides and grooms-to-be prepare to celebrate their last nights of freedom with family and friends.

Party experts have predicted the busiest month for stag and hen parties in more than a decade - providing a welcome 60-million-pound boost to local businesses up and down the country. CEO James Baddiley said: "We have been organising hen and stag events for more than 10 years and we have never had so many groups out at once."

"With more and more people opting for an organised stag or hen party and June being the beginning of wedding season, it seems May is always a favourable time to plan a hen or stag weekend.

"Despite the recent recession we have seen continual growth in our industry and I think this is definitely set to continue," he said.

The month of May alone will see an estimated total spend of 60 million pounds spread across bars, restaurants, taxis, travel, accommodation and activities, with hordes donning fancy dress costumes, embarking on adventurous group outings and partying the night away in style on organised hen and stag events.

The most popular destinations include Bournemouth, Nottingham and Newcastle for stag parties and London, Brighton and Bristol for hens. ( ANI )
