The Stags Head Team – Who are We?
Carl and Gavin first met at Northumbria uni where Carl was studying tourism and events management and Gavin was taking a course in computer science. The two hit it off straight away and spent many nights getting familiar with the pub and club scene in Newcastle, a location that has long been popular with stag parties. After leaving university, Gavin went on to a day job as a network systems analyst while Carl took up an events management role at a hotel in the city centre.
As part of his role, he was often responsible for overseeing the running of stag weekends and helping clueless parties who had failed to plan properly find the best activities, restaurants and clubs to ensure an unforgettable experience. He also saw close up the consequences of a less than spectacular stag night. It was this first hand experience that first planted the seeds of The Stags Head website in his head, but it wasn't until he was given the responsibility of planning his brother John's stag weekend that the plan really took root.
After arranging a successful weekend for the boys in Edinburgh covering a huge range of activities from clay pigeon shooting and quad biking to a whisky tour of top distilleries, as well as organising a pub crawl along the famous Royal Mile, he finally took the bull by the horns and approached his old friend Gavin. Combining Gavin's computer know-how with Carl's event management experience, the pair finally launched The Stags Head with the aim of making planning the perfect stag do easier than ever.
Embracing both the serious and funny sides of the stag night, this dynamic duo have a mission to make sure that everyone has the best pre-conjugal night of freedom before their big wedding day.
