Hen Parties


Brighton has long been the perfect hen party destination.

Sew Retro has a host of activities tailored to hen parties to ensure you all have a brilliant time and leave with a very special memento of your day.

Our hen parties are held in a beautiful Edwardian House in Hove, with lots of space. You have run of the ground floor including the garden.

Activities include making knickers, bunting, fascinators and bespoke items – no sewing experience is necessary for any of these activities. Your experienced tutor will guide you through all the fun activities.

Retro cream tea

Sew Retro hen parties also include a cream tea, beautifully baked and presented on vintage china.  Weather permitting the retro cream tea can be taken in the garden.

Rest assured no one ever goes home hungry from one of our tea and activity hen parties.

We aim to deliver a hen party that delights and provides wonderful memories for years to come.

Think delicate and delicious finger sandwiches served on whole meal bread, egg and cress, cheese and ham, coronation chicken, tuna sweet corn mayo, hummus and roast vegetables, brie and cranberry, cheese and home-made pickle.

Freshly baked scones with jam and clotted cream. Mouth-watering home-baked cakes, including lemon drizzle, chocolate cake, carrot cake, and coffee and walnut cake.

You are welcome to bring you own sparking wine at no extra cost.

You would need to allow three – four hours to make the knickers, bunting or fascinators and enjoy the vintage cream tea.

There is lots of easy parking and good links with public transport.

Prices start at £29 per person to include an activity and cream tea.

Hen Party


Julie said – “We were a hen party of nine and we all absolutely loved making our knickers. As all sewing novices, Sarah had the patience of a saint walking around and helping us all. We all walked away with a new pair of knickers and smiles on our faces. A brilliant way to spend the afternoon, a good giggle and healthy competition :-). Would definitely recommend.
Thanks Sarah.”

Izzy said – “Thank you Sew Retro, for the most fabulous Hen party activity this weekend. You looked after us all so well in your lovely home, I really cant thank you enough. From all the preparation, colour swatches, cake order, time changes, through to finishing off the last strip of bunting for us, you were fantastic! We all had such a great time, making bunting, while chatting, eating delicious cream teas out of beautiful china cups… generally having a lovely girly time. Cant wait to put up the gorgeous bunting over the wedding venue in june! Thank you Sarah, I cant recommend this as a group girly activity enough!x.”

Lucy said – “Thank you to Sarah! We had the best time at the weekend making owl lavender bags, coin purses and 3D birds! Sarah you made our day and you have the patience of a saint! Thank you so much!”
