    Brighton has been told to brace for an “invasion” of pre-marital mayhem.

    The lively south coast city has had a warning issued that this weekend (June 2 to 4) is expected to be the busiest so far this summer, with swarms of stag and hen dos inbound.

    A leading stag and hen firm has alerted the city that roughly 1,000 hens are inbound for what is “guaranteed to be a wild one”.

    Matt Mavir, Managing Director of Tyneside outfit Last Night of Freedomexplained how the city is set to be awash with people being merry in the nightlife hotspot but reckoned it would see more hens line the seafront than stags.

    He said: “Brighton is going to be overrun with hens this weekend – it will be wall-to-wall with brides.

    “But it is still very much seen as a hen party haven and I don’t really know why. There is tons to do for stags, plus there’s a great buzz around the city due to the football.

    “However, hens definitely rule the roost in Brighton.”

    He reckoned that it was so popular with hen dos, in fact, that more were set to head there than Ibiza over the upcoming summer.

    Still though, it’s Liverpool that is set to take the costume jewellery tiara, as it remains the most popular spot for the pre-nuptial night out.

    Despite this, though, nowhere do the hens rule the roost more than in the city of York, where a ratio of 13-1 sees it sit atop the leaderboard as the most hen-preferred destination.

    “Most big destinations like Newcastle and Dublin have a pretty even split when it comes to gender. However, some locations are increasingly becoming dominated by either stags or hens,” added Matt.

    “But I think that while stags will always have their own little party paradise in places like Brighton, hens have now found their ideal spots to nest.”
