In preparation for V-Day we’ve taken head and prepared a handy list of romance-themed events happening around the country. Whether you love it or hate it, we’ve got everything you need for something a bit different from the bog-standard dinner for two…
Teen Dreams Prom, Thursday, The Book Club, London
If you’re on the lookout for a Valentine’s night of fun, whether you’re single or attached, and want to avoid over-crowded restaurants and bad Valentine’s movies then the Teen Dreams Prom is the event for you! Quirky décor, prom-themed music and silly games are all on the menu and there might even be a few cheeky games of beer pong! It’s a great way to meet new people or to just have a ball (geddit?) with your other half. For more information visit their website here.
Bromance Before Romance, Brighton
Who says Valentine’s Day has to just be for couples? Not us, that’s for sure. If you’ve made plans with your bezzies but are feeling guilty about leaving your other half all by himself, then this may be just the thing for you. While you’re off having a girly weekend away, your man and his mate could be enjoying clay pigeon shooting, a trip to the casino, a three-course Italian meal and a two-night stay in the Bromance Suite (complete with an Xbox 360 and all their fave games) in Brighton for £139 per person. It would probs make you the best girlfriend ever. Just sayin’. To book, visit Thestagcompany.com
A Weekend Of Bliss, Feb 15-16, Four Pillars Hotel, Gloucestershire
If January has been a tough month and your summer hols seem way too far away, why not head off with your partner for a weekend of romance and lurve tucked away in The Cotswolds? Situated in the heart of Gloucestershire, the Valentine’s package includes an overnight stay, breakfast, entrance to the Valentine’s Dinner Dance and full use of the spa facilities, for £255 per person.

Join 300 Lovestruck.com eligible singles on Valentine’s Eve (is there such a thing?!) for a night of slipping and sliding around the ice rink at Broadgate Circle.

Girly Dinner, Thursday, Steakhouse Bar & Grill, Newcastle
We all remember Carrie and Samantha’s balloon clad Valentine’s dinner in Sex and the City, so why not celebrate in style with your own BFF – no men needed! Legendary chef, Marco Pierre White, is offering a three-course Valentine’s meal at his Steakhouse Bar & Grill for only £50 per person.

It’s run by the Secret Cinema peeps and is on from Feb 14th until March 3rd but tickets are selling fast, so head to Futurecinema.co.uk to get you and yours a seat.
