If throwing beanbags, jumping around in sacks and bouncing on space hoppers sounds like your idea of the best way to spend a Saturday, Blackpool Old School Sports Day is your dream hen party activity. Push the rewind button and go way back to your primary school years, when sports day was a seriously big deal.
This is your chance to relive some the best bits of your childhood, when exercise involved hopping, skipping and jumping, and you got fit with hula hoops not kettle bells.
Everything is on the retro side, from the events themselves - the sack race is a classic - to the sweatbands and team bibs you wear to compete. There is one difference: the teams are called houses. Unless you went to a posh school or attended Hogwarts with Harry and Hermione, you probably didn't call teams 'houses'.
Actually taking part in Blackpool Old School Sports Day is easy and fun. All you have to do is show some team spirit and get stuck in. Your event coordinator handles all the planning and takes care of essential jobs like setup, making sure everyone sticks to the rules, and marking down house scores. The house with the highest number on their scorecard at the finish wins the entire event.
