What a party! My sister used Funktion Events for to arrange my hen party in Chester. I'm still recovering now from the cocktails and wine.
Everything was exactly as I wanted, she said that Funktion gave her loads of ideas to suit my demanding needs!!
I was shocked when I realised that my sister had booked life drawing as I didn't think it was for me. However it was brilliant, the model was great and the instructor Jane was so much fun. The best activity I've ever done.
The package we booked was two activities for £50 (life drawing and dirty dancing party).
Overall fantastic weekend, would have no problem recommending Funktion Events :)
From the moment I was given charge of helping my brother to arrange his mates stag do, I knew I wanted a stag and hen company to sort it for me. After searching Google for many companies and getting several quotes I chose to go with Funktion Events (mainly because they didn't hound me like the other companies!!).
Instead they gave me some real life that suited the groups needs and budget :).
We got some of the lads to pay individually and some paid us, which Funktion arranged without any issues.
The hotel in Nottingham was city centre as promised and much better quality than what I was expecting.
We did paintballing and quad biking (stag do classic!!) - again great quality close to Nottingham city centre.
The team at Funktion were great, always answered my calls, responded to any emails and never brushed me off.
So to sum up, if you want a company to deliver on what it boasts, then let Funktion Events organise your stag weekend.
Cheers guys for making a great memory.
I arranged a stag do for my best man in 'The smoke'. Top time had by all. Great organization. Really friendly, helpful and personal service. I've done this sort of stuff before so i knew the lads would enjoy shooting, archery and the hovercraft before we went on the booze. But I've always organized it myself. Really glad I didn't this time. Thanks Funktion!
Meant to write a review ages ago but totally forgot. FUNKTION made everything simple and easy to do. I managed to pay individually so didnt have to collect the payments in from individuals myself.
Chris was really nice and gave me loads of ideas instead of just trying to sell to me. Actually he gave me the idea for most of the weekend (Which I took the credit for :) )
Booking - really simple, chatted through loads of ideas and then just booked when ready. I got a free space for the bride as I booked within 5 days!!
Service - Chris looked after me throughout the whole process updating me on hotel and activity venue details. Everytime I called someone helped me
Weekend - It was brilliant! Bride loved it. Everything was as described with the hotel being better than what we expected.
I would book with Funktion Events in the future as they made my job as bridemaid very simple.
Went on a stag weekend in Leeds earlier this year - organised by Funktion Events.
We stayed in the Crowne Plaza which is pretty much in the centre of Leeds and a great hotel (beer wasn't too expensive like most hotels) We arrived in the afternoon and hit the hotel bar, then experienced all the delights Leeds has to offer, Very cosmopolitan city with loads to do and a great night life,
Day time events included a fantastic Quad biking, Shooting and Archery Session in some woodland just outside the city. Everything was seamless - the activity centre were expecting us, it was all paid for and No hassle - we just needed to enjoy the day. Saturday night round Leeds was followed by a massive Full English then a Sauna and Steam.
Booking through Funkion took all the stress out of a Lads weekend - if it was up to us to sort the weekend out it would have been a disaster - Funktion even gave us personal recommendations on what bars to go to.
I went on a hen do for my friend Clare to Manchester last month. I've got to say that this was the best hen weekend i've ever been on, and i've been on loads!
We couldn't fault the organisation of the whole weekend. Everything was as described and great value.

My mate sorted this Stag do for me, and I've got to say that Funktion were flexible and easy to deal with for us disorganized lads. We did hotel, karting and pub crawl, but some guys couldn't stay both nights. This wasn't a problem for Funktion and seemed simple to amend the booking.
Hotel was quality, not the typical Travelodge type we were expecting! Karting was at quality venue and great fun. It was a relief to get into the bars without queuing and without the door staff refusing a group of lads. We'll all be recommending them to mates planning something in the future!
I need to thank my bridesmaid and Funktion for making my hen weekend one to remember. All the girls said how nice this company was to deal with.
The hen do comprised of a quality hotel, life drawing and a meal. All were faultless and the price was very reasonable.
"We booked a life drawing session through Funktion Events as an alernative activity for my friend Steve's Stag Do.
"I'd always wanted to have one physical activity (we did a morning gorge walk) and a more relaxed one, and this seemed like something different, quirky, and memorable.
"The event itself surpassed our expectations - I had imagined a fairly serious class with an elderly droopy model - hardly the alternative for the lap dance Steve was prohibited from having - yet instead we had a warm, friendly tutor and a pretty fit model!
"I arranged with the company for the time and place for it to fit around the day, and even arranged for Steve's sister Cath to pretend to be be the nude model for the session.
"Steve had no idea what we were doing, and once we were told and his sister revealed herself as the model, the look on his face and his reaction was the highlight of the day!
"Almost as funny was how once blindfolded again the model stood inches away from his face as we removed the blindfold, causing him to almost jump back out of his chair!
"Once the session started we were talked through the different techniques and practices the different styles of the drawings with the model Sam assuming different positions.
"We observed Sam and then attempted to draw her with our eyes closed, before drawing her outline in shadow and then drawing just the shadows on her well-shaped body.
"We then did two full drawings each and quickly picked up the hang of it.
"None of us were artists but really enjoyed the session - it seems one of the funniest pictures we have now is of a gorgeous naked lady laying down facing four lads, of whom none are looking at her as they are all staring intently at their pads and concentrating on their drawings!
"The session flew by and my only gripe was that it ended too quickly - it seemed I had just got the hang of doing semi-decent drawings and was enjoying myself when the time had elapsed, and I was itching to draw again.
"I wasn't sure the event would be a success before I booked it but am pleased to say that it resoundingly was.
"There were plenty of laughs and giggles to ensure it was a fun time and was the most memorable part of the day.
"Afterwards Sam was happy to pose for pictures so we could stand behind her with our drawings and people could see on Facebook how good our skills compared to the woman in the flesh.
"it proved to be a great and memorable event, despite none of us being artists or having done any life drawing before.
"I highly recommend it as an event and hope other people get to have an equally enjoyable experience as we did."
I organised my friends hen do in Manchester for a party of 20. The meer thought of planning and organising a large group would bring me out in a panic. Fortunately I stumbled across Funktion and was given plenty of ideas.
Jay and the team were so friendly and informative. Once I had decided on the Cocktail making class it was plain sailing from start to finish.
The cocktail class was fantastic, so much fun and very reasonable!!
I would recommend Funktion to anyone planning a hen party as it takes the stress away. If I have the "pleasure" of organising another in the future I know where I'll go.
I was set the task of organising the Hen Party for my sister. Thank god for Funktion because I could easily choose what actitives we could do, a hotel option and a three course meal. It was simple and brilliant to have all the hassle taken away. We did cocktail making in Cardiff which was fantastic fun! The whole weekend was excellent value and couldn't fault the services from everyone involved. I would use Funktion again and recommend to anyone.
My best man had the duties of sorting out my Lake District stag weekend. I told him I wanted quality, good value and unique activities. He delivered!
The weekend was brilliant and great value for money. We stayed in self catering apartments with access to a swimming pool (brilliant fun) and then we gorge walking followed by canoeing. The canoeing was great, two people per boat, well most of the time as we pushed a few of the lads in a few times. The gorge walking was very exciting and put everyone in the mood for a few beers (hard core activity). All the instructors where great and even they said that Funktion Events were one of the best stag party organises. There reasons were that they always double checked everything with the them to make sure that no errors were made. Overall this is what I really liked about Funktion, everything they did was in our interest, they helped decide on the best activities to suit our group making it cheaper, they double checked everything with us personally by phone or email and they always repsonded to any questions.
If you are going to use a stag and hen party organiser please book with this company as we need more companies like this to do well and set the standard. Dont always go with the cheapest.
Liverpool Wood Street Revolution for cocktail making!! Was just a girls night out and the whole time we were there we were kept entertained and laughing so hard we had sore sides!!
I would recommend this activity 1000's times over! Definitely going back xx
I used Funktion events to book a Hen party in York for 8 people. All of the staff were very helpful; they were always quick to respond and answer any questions we had and made sure that we had all of the information we needed. The activities were fantastic and excellent value for money and the whole weekend was brilliantly organised. We all had a fantastic time and I would definately use Funktion events again in the future, I cannot recommend them highly enough.
I booked the 'SMS Pub treasure hunt' through funkion events for a friends hen do. It was easy to book and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly making sure we had all the information we needed ready for the weekend. They were also prompt in replying to any queries i had.
We all had an fantastic day doing the treasure hunt - It was something different to do and we all thoroughly enjoyed the activity - even though it rained all day, which just gave us an excuse to have extra drinks in each pub.
I would deffinately recommend the treasure hunt and Funkion events to anyone - excellent price and customer service.
Fantastic experience with Funktion. We weren't sure what to do for my friends stag do but the Funktion team had loads of ideas and contacts for us to use. Jay gave us a great quote and fantastic service. Nothing was to much trouble. Will use again for future events.
I used Funktion events for booking my sisters hen do, after searching the internet for what seemed like weeks I came accross Funktion, they had numerous deals available and were considerably cheaper than other companies, not only were they cheaper but once I had received a quote from them I wasnt bombarded with emails and phone calls pushing me to book with them. The staff were extremely friendly and kept me in the loop throughout the booking stage, as I had to book for 20 women it made the process very easy and whenever I rang Funktion it took them seconds to familiarise themselves with the hen do that I was planning rather than having to wait and speak to someone who had no idea what i was talking about.
I was extremely impressed as well as I had 2 pregnant ladies attending the hen do and Funktion advised me on only putting down a deposit and not booking them on the hen do til the last minute and as a result one of the pregnant ladies didn't end up attending, this saved her from losing any money, this is the standard of service you can come to expect from funktion events, putting the customer first.
Finally (I know this is long) the event itself was amazing all the girls had a fabulous time at the cocktail making session (everyone got very drunken which made it very cheap) even those that couldnt drink (staff were very accomodating to the expecting hen) the food was delicious, served in a timely manner both the accommodation and cocktail making/3 course meal venue had obviously been chosen for the standard of service they offer because the quality was unbelievable for the price, the hotel was beautiful, staff were friendly and every aspect of the hen do had been extremely well organised and excellent value for money.
Sorry for the lenghly review but I would definately reccommend Funktion events to anyone looking to book a hen do.
My sister booked my hen do for me and the girls for Manchester last month. She gave me a few quotes she had got from other hen companies, but Funktions stood out. The communication with them was easy and informative. We got regular updates on how the booking was progressing and changing things in the booking was no problem to them.
The cocktail making and meal was really good value, well worth what we paid! We had a great time and stayed on afterwards as the bar had a brilliant atmosphere. We went into the Printworks bars later on without queueing, which was great as it was raining. Our hotel was only round the corner so a short stagger to our beds was ideal. Whole thing only cost us £109 each, bargain!
We will def be using them again, probably next year.
I decided to book with these after getting a number of quotes from others. The quote i got from Jay was personal unlike the others i received.
I called Jay and he was very helpful in giving me ideas on how to plan the Hen weekend i was arranging. I couldn't believe they only wanted £75 deposit for the lot of us (15). I went with his suggestion and couldn't fault how the weekend flowed.
Nottingham was great, the hotel was central and a short walk to the naked male drawing class. This was hilarious, Liz loved her photo opportunity with the naked model! We then got changed and had cocktail making and party boards in Vodka Rev. James made us all laugh and made Liz the centre of attention. After 3 cocktails and quite a few more drinks, i can't remember much else, but we all slept well and managed to have some breakfast in the morning.
I'll be booking again with Funktion next year when my sis plans our best friends Hen Do.
My friend used funktionevents because of their good reviews and helpfulness on the phone. I told her at the time of booking the hen party that I doubt they will deliver everything as good as they promise for that low price, BUT to my amazement they delivered everything BRILLIANTLY.
Our hotel in Manchester was very centre (The Midland Hotel) and very luxury with a swimming pool. The service here was great and I was happy that Funktion managed to get us in there for a hen party.
Activities - Dance Party, SMS Treasure Hunt and Meal.
These were all excellent and exactly what we had been told (no little nasty suprises) and again all very central around the hotel.
Overall, even though my friend dealt with Funktion Events, I must admit that they did everything we asked for at a great price.
USE this company if you want no hassle and top quality!
Loved the weekend in Leeds on my friends hen do. I'll be arranging one very soon for my friends hen party and will be using Funktion for that.
The hotel we had was in the city centre and a very nice looking one with helpful staff and car park.
We did a SMS treasure hunt, dance party and reserved booths/ bar on the saturday. All was prefect and ran smoothly.
If you want a hassle free hen weekend I would recommend that you give Funktion Events a go! Thank you
As best man I was tasked to organise the stag weekend; was lucky enough to find these guys whilst looking into the possible venues online. Took a punt and rung them for advice and didn't look back. Clearly they've got loads of contacts so nothing seemed to be a problem. I was unsure as to which activities to go for based on price ended up paintballing and quad-biking, was perfectly organised and made it look like I'd done the hard work, when I barely lifted a finger! A great weekend in Nottingham was had by all, great route for bars and club entry all sorted. Seamless weekend from start to finish. Thanks again guys!
All girls had such a fantastic time, It was very organised and well planned.
Was easy to arranged and make payments.
Cocktail making was just hilarious and the food was amazing!! Highly recommended.
The pole dancing was something i wasn't sure about but had such a great time & a laugh with the girls i would definatley book again!!!!!
Thanks for everything Funktion xxx
Funktion were superb in helping to organise the stag do. We went for the all day multi-activity package, which is held at Rookin House Farm nr Keswick. I've been on a few such events, and this was by far and away the most professional with friendly, well organised staff and reliable equipment. Funktion were really helpful in tailoring our package to suit our needs, and at an extremely competitive price. Would definitely recommend using them to anybody looking to this kind of gig in the Lake District.
many thanks again to all at funktion events, we had a top quality time and we certainly had value for money, top class activities great hotel, plenty of fun, anyone out there looking for a top weekend, ring funktion events, value for money hassel free and i promise your party will have a great time as the 16 of us did x
Great service and brilliant value. Our hen group went to Nottingham and did cocktail making. We decided to use funktion events because they had a clear package on their website and when I enquired they got back to me really quickly.
They couldn't confirm the cocktail making venue until we had booked, which had me worried but they promised all their venues are modern and lady friendly. Once I'd booked I received confirmation that same day of the venue and was very pleased.
Would recommend using them for cocktail making
From the very beginning Funktion helped and advise what turned out to be a great stag weekend.
They recommend what to do, while listening to my budget needs.
We had a great time in the Lake District staying at some apartments and doing canoeing. The canoeing was brilliant fun (would recommend as you share the boats which makes for better competitiveness between the boys)
I would recommend using them
A group of us went to Sheffield on a Hen Do and did perfume making and a burlesque dance party. Funktion Events made it easy for me to arrange as they were so helpful and knowledgeable. The hen was really pleased, as it was a surprise and the rest of the group loved it. I would recommend them to anyone looking to arrange a party.
