Blagging a night out

The increasing cost of drinks and club tickets can make it tricky to go out that much these days. Our guide to going out on the cheap has a few tips you can try to help you have a good time without breaking the bank. We’ve also got a guide to blagging your way into clubs that could help you save a few quid if you’re up for trying it. Or if you’re sick of the cost of getting into places, why not try starting your own club night?

If you can’t afford to go out

If you’ve looked at all the options for cheap nights out and still can’t afford it, it’s not the end of the world. Read our article on how to deal with FOMO and remember that going out isn’t all that big a deal, you’re not missing out on much and you can have just as much fun, if not more, being teetotal as you can going out and getting hammered. You’ll also feel a lot better in the morning.

Sex in toilets

When you’re out having a good time it’s easy to get carried away and get into situations you otherwise would avoid. Sex in toilets at clubs or events might sound like a bit of cheeky fun, but please try not to get arrested. And make sure you read up on what to do the morning after a heavy night.

Staying safe on a night out

Unfortunately, for those who identify as women going out can also involve getting groped or even sexually assaulted. This is never your fault and it’s never ok, and there are ways you can fight back. Read about Girls Against’s mission to end groping at gigs and our article on dealing with social anxiety for more information.
