UN-CANCEL THOSE CANCELLED HEN, STAG OR BIRTHDAY PARTY PLANS

So, this bloody ‘C’ word has caused a bit of a s**t storm over the last few days hasn’t it. We know that many events due to take place aboard will either be cancelled in the next 5-6 weeks or alternative plans will need to be put into place for Plan B to continue your celebrations.


PLAN B

If your Plan A celebrations have been cancelled and they can’t simply be postponed, we can offer you some help with planning a Glamping Event with your hens, stags, birthday buddies or family members to make an awesome Plan B come together.

If you have to rearrange, our packages start from £50 per person for the entire weekend and this includes hire of our fully furnished Bell Tents with boho decor, raised beds, carpets and chic accessories.


HOW CAN WE HELP

If your cancelled event was due to take place during April, May or June we can help you gather your tribe and source a venue in the right location to pitch your bell tents for the weekend for you. We’ll do all the hard work in setting them up entirely, you just have to turn up.


LET’S CHILL

To help with the the emotional and mental upheaval of changed plans during this time of uncertainty we’ll be supplying our Chill Out Bell Tent for FREE OF CHARGE and this is a great communal area to shake those cocktails, get into those downward dogs or lie on the floor with sunglasses and in your PJs.

    Bell Tent Village Hire

    When you are planning a wedding, party, event or festival; one of the things to consider is where are your guests going to go once the party is coming to a close. Are you sending them on their merry way home in a taxi or does your venue, garden or field have the space to accommodate your guests and a Bell Tent Village.

    We’ve detailed below our top tips when deciding whether you want a Bell Tent Village at your event


    DO YOU HAVE ENOUGH SPACE

    First thing to consider is whether the area which you are wanting to set up the Bell Tent Village is large enough to accommodate the estimated number of bell tents you envisage your Bell Tent Village may have. We have various bell tent sizes and lots of ways to configure the Bell Tent Village; they can be set up in a straight line, horseshoe, as a street, dotted around or staggered. There is no limit to the design which we can come up with for how the village will look given the space available.

    If you have enough space – book your venue and contact us with details of the event, date and venue.

    We will need to have direct access to the site and will require enough room for large long wheel based vans and low loaders to enter the site to set up


    HOW DO YOU WANT YOUR GUESTS TO BOOK THE BELL TENTS

    Next thing to decide upon is who do you want your guests to book and we have two options available for you

    • The first option is that you, as the event organiser, block book a certain number of bell tents on your guests behalf.
    • The second option available is that we can deal with enquiries, bookings and payments direct from your guests. We set your event a bespoke and passworded booking area on our website dedicated just for your event. You simply pass on the link and the password to anyone invited to your event, they complete the booking form and pay their deposit online.

    To secure either option, we require a small deposit to secure your event in our diary

    If we are managing your bookings directly, you will also be sent an online booking worksheet which is updated each time we receive a enquiry or booking, you can instantly see via your link



    WHEN DO YOU WANT THE BELL TENTS TO BE SET UP

    The day before (usually a Wednesday , Thursday or Friday) we arrive at the site and being to set up the Bell Tent Village to ensure they are ready for guest arrival in plenty of time if your venue allows this. We can set up on the morning of the event of course if this is this only option which your venue will allow


    OTHER THINGS TO CONSIDER FOR YOUR BELL TENT VILLAGE

    We do not supply electricity so if you want to ensure your guests have electricity, you will have to arrange for power to reach the village, usually via a generator. If you didn’t want to arrange for electric to reach each bell tent, perhaps think about having one extra bell tent which can run mobile phone chargers, hair dryers, straighteners etc

    If you have toilets or are hiring showers for your guests, make sure that you can have water running to the area where you are setting up the showers. Try and place the showers and the toilets within a decent walking distance from the Bell Tent Village

    If there is a little bit of a walk from the party area to the glamping Bell Tent Village, you might want to consider some lighting along the walk way so guests are directed to the village

        Luxury Glamping Hen Party

        So you have been given the ultimate bridesmaid duty……………to plan the Glamping Hen Party. Your job is to gather a small tribe (or village) of Hens, to get them to commit to the Hen Party which could be 9 months into the next summer whilst we are in the depths of scarves, hats and Christmas trees….so yes….you do have a task on your hands.

        Here at Victoria Lily, we have first hand experience with organising all types of events and especially a Hen Party. The logistics of agreeing venue, making sure the date suits everyone, finding the right prices, getting all the hens to commit to the price, getting everyone’s contribution to book and final numbers is such a task that it will have you reaching for the gin bottle (and a straw!) before long.

        Last summer we had the absolute privilage of bring involved with #CathFest which the fantastic Elizabeth Jayne Photography (click for the link to her fantastic work) and man, did she throw an uber chic, classy and glitter-tastic Hen Party!

        We helped to create the Hen Village for 30 lovely ladies with our large bell tents which sleep up to 6 each and each Hen Bell Tent had raised beds, bedding, carpets, bunting, tables, carpets, rugs and all the glitter themed items you could ever wish for.

        Liz and the team of girls who set up up the surprise Glamping Hen Party when to absolute town with an outside pallet bar, DJ, hay bale seating area (complete with table cloths and flowers!) and a relaxing yoga session on the Sunday morning.

        Our Hen Party Bell Tent Package has been put together to help make the planning process easier, smoother and as hassle free as possible.

        We’ve kept our Glamping Hen Package as simple as possible and prices are from £50.00 per hen for the entire weekend. We know getting final numbers in December for a Hen Party which isn’t taking place until the following July, just isn’t going to happen. We ask for an approximate number you are expecting to attend for the glamping weekend and we just ask that we have the final number attending two weeks prior to the Hen Party.

        A small deposit secures the Hen Party weekend and once we have the final number figure a few weeks beforehand, that is when we will request the final balance – how bloody easy!!

        For more information about our Glamping Hen Party packages and what we can offer, Contact Us here or email victoria@victorialilyevents.co.uk

        For more information about the amazingly creative Liz and her photography, head over to Elizabeth Jayne Photography or give her a following on her Instagram and Facebook

          What Is Glamping?

          • glamping/ˈɡlampɪŋ/noun

          “a form of camping involving accommodation and facilities more luxurious than those associated with traditional camping. glamping is likely to satisfy any city slicker seeking a little refuge in nature—without foregoing any of life’s luxuries”

Victoria Lily Events can provide your wedding or event with a boutique pop up village or hotel pretty much anywhere you’d like.
