LNOF's Origins

Matt Mavir founded Last Night of Freedom in 1999 as a student at Newcastle University.

He launched the website from his student house while recovering from a sports injury.

In the first eight months, he'd made £23. Last Night of Freedom has since grown into Britain's biggest stag and hen party provider, having organised over 45,000 trips to Britain and beyond.
