Hoots mon! Real men wear skirts, and battle it out for dominance in the mini Highland Games. Time to roll out the Braveheart quotes for a chest-beating afternoon of proper man stuff. A brilliant alternative way to spend the Saturday afternoon of a stag weekend, the Highland Games is the perfect antidote to bog standard activities you could do anywhere.
Blackpool is one of the few places in Britain to offer this hilarious event. Teams compete for the coveted 'Golden Haggis' award at a farm just 15 minutes from Blackpool town centre.
If you've ever fancied a bash at welly wanging and tossing the caber, now's your chance to live the dream. Game marshals will split the group into teams, dish out orange wigs and kilts, and get the banter going.
When everyone's kilted up, the mini Highland Games begin. Choose your fastest runner for the farmers dash and the best marksman for the archery challenge. The games end with the grand daddy of stag challenges: the tug 'o war. The winning team earns the title and bragging rights for the rest of the stag weekend.
Blackpool Stag Events Include:

Best men, attention please. Your core duty (apart from making sure the stag gets smashed for three days' straight without getting lost/arrested/into trouble) is to sort out the big Saturday night. And that, of course, means nightclub entry. Get the jump on the stag weekend with entry to the biggest and best clubs in Blackpool.
An essential part of your survival kit for a Blackpool stag weekend, party wristbands include queue jump admission to multiple bars, drinks offers and nightclub entry. This is your big night out sorted in one go. Stroll past the long queues, flash your passes at the bouncers and get the whole group in with no bother.
Party passes get you into the liveliest bars in Blackpool's main nightlife areas like Talbot Square, Queen Street, Market Street and the Promenade. All the best pubs, bars and clubs are in the town centre within walking distance so you won't have to splash out on taxis.
If you do want to go clubbing on a stag night in Blackpool, sorting nightclub entry in advance is a wise move. Friday and Saturday nights are insanely busy. Wing it on the night and you may have to cut the celebrations short. No best man wants that stain on his record.
Whether you want a no-fuss business-type hotel in the middle of Blackpool, a B&B on the seafront or a characterful boutique bed, we can sort it for you. From self-catering apartments to grand old hotel rooms, from friendly hostels to contemporary four star designer hotels, we'll get you the best deals on the best places for your budget.
Let us know if there's a specific part of town you'd like to be in - close to the Promenade, near to the Pleasure Beach - or ask your stag party adviser for recommendations if you know where your activities are but not where to sleep. We'll get you the hotel, hostel or B&B that puts you exactly where you want to be: within staggering distance of the bars and clubs, or out in a quieter, upscale part of town. Whatever you need, and whatever level of functionality or luxury you're looking for, we've got the inside track.
Make the accommodation budget for your stag weekend go further, thanks to our inside knowledge. We've tested out rooms all over Blackpool to bring you a list of the best value, stag party friendly places in town. We'll help you find friendlier budget places, where bargain still means clean and well-run; mid-range rooms with a surprising amount of extras; and top-end swank that blows the competition clean out of the water.
