    Hey

    So it's my 18th Birthday mid-April and I'm really stuck for ideas on how to celebrate it. Most of my friends have either done family/close friend parties at home or in some sort of hall. However, I did a similar thing for my 16th so don't really wanna do that again. I was thinking about doing something a bit different, maybe paintballing or go-karting, but I'm just not sure whether my best friends will enjoy this.

    Any ideas??

    Hah! Well not exactly - but I suppose in a relative way perhaps.

    To be honest, that sort of thing does seem like the best call at the moment.

    I didn't think people did parties at 18. Thought it was more slightly younger teen thing.

    There're parties, and there are... PARTIES.

    It's not the best spring break ever til someone dies.

    For my 18th I went to watch the Arctic Monkeys then went into town :-)
    I enjoyed it - Is there no gigs or anything you would be interested in?

    Usually my friends have just had a party at a club then gone into town...

    At the end of the day, you just want to get trashed legally for the first time in your life, and however you go about it the result will be the same

    Laser Quest is actually a pretty cool idea! I'd probs have some more friends round for maybe a BBQ and some beverages afterwards as well.

    Seeing a musical would be good, but I have quite a large group of friends so getting us all down to London might be a bit expensive.

    Ahh gosh, if AM were playing then I would go see them too, that would be such a perfect birthday - I saw them in December in Notts and it was amazing. I will keep an eye out for any gigs around that time though.

    Thanks for all your ideas guys!

    Whatever you do, make sure people who aren't 18 yet aren't excluded - that's why hall or house parties are a good bet, the halls where I live are about 50 quid a night, might be a good idea.
    You could just go for a nice meal somewhere?
    If you're thinking about going to London, I'd recommend staying in London Central Youth Hostel, it's really good tbh and in a good location, hence the 'central' :p:
    I went to London a few days after my 18th - oct half term and we went shopping and saw Mamma Mia and stayed at the hostel and i had a gathering at home for my actual birthday..

    Good point. I don't mean parties in the sense of spontaneous, house/outdoor **** crazy parties, I mean the whole organised, rent out a hall with a middle aged balding DJ playing the Macarena .etc. I thought that was what the OP was talking about.
