10 ideas for a fun girls night out

As you get older, peoples lives get busier, some get married or have kids (or both), then naturally girls' nights get less and less. It’s good to try and keep up with your friends, though, and if you’ve not seen them for a while, then perhaps it’s time to get something in the diary. If you want to get the ones who usually cancel actually to commit and turn up, though, then maybe it’s time to turn it up a notch on usual plans for a night out. Here are a few fun ideas that may help with that

1. Bowling

Not your usual night out but you can’t go wrong with this classic game as it’s always sure to be a good time, and there are loads of places now, which are a bit more grown-up than your average bowling alley and many have restaurants and bars on site.

2. See a Show

Depending on where you live, there are loads of different options for the type of show you could see. See what’s touring near you, and even if you’ve never heard of it or you don’t think it’s really your thing, still go. Perhaps a ballet, a musical or a play might be right up your street, you just didn’t know it. Check out what’s on at your local theatre, amateur productions can be pretty great, and you don’t have to spend a fortune either.

3. Escape Room

These are pretty popular team-building exercises now, but they are also great fun to have with your mates. There’s zombie escape rooms, time machine themes, space, and even chocolate escape rooms - who would want to escape that though?

4. Get Active & Try something new

I recently went on a girls-only paddleboarding session in Cardiff and loved it, a few of the girls had gone together and this type of thing is great for a group. Trying something new, fun and getting active is a winner in my books.

5. Night at the museum

This might be something your kids would want to do, in fact my son and I stayed at the Natural History museum a few years back, but imagine how fun it would be with the girls? Many museums now offer an after-hours option with DJs, drinks, and open access to exhibits after hours, check it out, it’s definitely something different.

6. Go to Bingo

Bingo is such a good night out with the girls; if you’re not sure how to play, then you can learn before and even have a practice. Do a bit of research, so you know your two fat ladies from your two little ducks and practice dabbing as quick as possible. The great thing about this as a night out is that not only is it really fun but you could also win some money too.

7. Visit A Psychic

Grab some friends for emotional support and book reading to glimpse into your future self. Just make sure you go for a drink or some food afterwards to talk about everything you’ve been told.

8. Wine Tasting.

Always a winner and easy to organize, look into local wineries and shops that offer tastings. You’ll learn a lot and have so much fun while doing it.

9. Karaoke

There’s nothing more therapeutic than belting out some tunes with your mates. Gone are the days when you had to stand up in front of a room full of people to enjoy a karaoke night, these days you can hire a booth, so it’s just you and your crew. There’s no embarrassment, just plenty of drinks, singing, and dancing.

10. Comedy Show

A comedy show is a fab idea for all the girls. Check out your local comedy club as even if there is no ‘big name’ act on, there will always be a gig on a Friday or Saturday night, and they usually offer packages with food and drink too. There’s likely to be more than one act on too, so if the first one is not to your taste, then hopefully the others will be, and if not, just drink your way through it and laugh at how terrible it is. You’re guaranteed a good time, whatever happens.
