As an aside; the trainer manager that I trained with once advised me never to allow anyone to hold an 18th. or 21st. birthday party in my pub. He reckoned they more trouble than they were worth.



Worse thing is the random people that turn up to them chancing it on getting in and getting free drinks/causing trouble. My sister had a 21st and we had random people (its mostly similar aged youths and suchlike) trying to blag their way into the venue.

It's not about letting her go, as I certainly would, but the party will be run by us

Whatever you do, do not let her or her friends mention the venue/date on TwitFaceSpace - unless you want to be faced with a bill for the re-building of the hall.

I half remember my mates 18th - 18 pints for each of us as an aim as it was his 18th - i think i made it.
You've got to let her do it, its part of growing up, but a ticketed event and a door policy, a published end time and an expulsion policy for drunkenness should help allay the worries of the other parents too.

Put it this way.....if its an 18th they will all be plastered. Remember what you were like at 18 and then double it......nowadays its the pot etc that you have to worry about.

From memory, alcohol will be sneaked in or stored outside.....just go with the flow and let them get on with it.

I'd let her have it at a nightclub. You print the tickets the nightclub runs the party. Who they serve with alcohol is then up to them, they take care of the music and have bouncers to chuck out trouble-makers.

Good idea ChrisL.....All the 17 yr old will get fake ID anyway so leave it for the nightclub to sort out.

If it's a private party they won't even need the ID. Aged over 14 they can go onto licensed premises. The nightclub can set what rules they like, over 14, over 15 etc.

Thanks all, a quick call to the local plod and they advise using a place with a licensed bar, so they become responsible for trying to make sure under 18s don't drink. Otherwise it will be us that's responsible.

Cheers

we always used to do our birthdays in pubs too

actually, on my 18th, we did al 20 pubs in Clitheroe in 4 hours - a half in each doesn't sound to horrendous, but there was a lot of distance to cover as well as the drinking... including the dreaded yard of ale for me... most of which I wore due to poor technique!

Fair to say I was a proper mess at the end of that... .

and I've not learned from it... Wink
