DOUGIE WALLACE: STAGS, HENS & BUNNIES IN BLACKPOOL



Written by Jack Blocker

Few people want these drunken hordes descending on the nation's seaside towns, but I don't think they're all bad. They may look like they've covered themselves in PVA glue, crashed a minibus into Ann Summers, then vomited over everything within 10 feet, but can you imagine what it would be like without them?

Hailing from Brighton, I know what it's like to have a young hen's piss splash on your ankles during a fag-break outside Oceana. But I also know that's a small price to pay to keep every Wetherspoons and kebab shop in the city in business, while stemming the tide of bong workshops, craft fairs and farmers' markets that are currenlty consuming the seaside town.

London based photographer Dougie Wallace went to Blackpool - the stag and hen mecca - to photograph the pre-wedding parties drinking, fighting and (practically) fucking. And it looks like a bloody good laugh if you ask me.

If you like these, check out the rest on Dougie's website. The images will also be featured in an exhibition at the Hoxton Gallery next month.

Don't Panic attempt to credit photographers and content owners wherever possible, however due to the sheer size and nature of the internet this is sometimes impractical or impossible. If you see any images on our site which you believe belong to yourself or another and we have incorrectly used it please let us know at panic@dontpaniconline.com and we will respond asap.
