Something to do Valentine’s Night

Music lovers? London Lovers?

Well we have the event and venue for you this Valentine’s evening.

Wilton’s Music Hall, a gem in the heart of London, and the oldest grand music hall in the world will be hosting this Wednesday’s event ‘OneTrackMinds’.

Step into a live storytelling event celebrating the power of music; think Desert Island Discs meets The Moth Radio and TED Talks.   

Now something of a regular at Wilton’s, OneTrackMinds returns with another vibrant selection of writers, thinkers and musicians each presenting a thought-provoking story about that one song which has changed their life, and is about to leave a lasting impact on yours.

Sounds like a good little evening, a lovely way to spend a Wednesday night.

Why not follow with a couple of cocktails at the venue’s unique cocktail bar and discuss what ‘your song’ is.

14th February to 15th February, 7:30pm – 9:30pm, includes interval.

£8 – £12 full price, £6 – £10 concessions
Wilton’s Music Hall,
1 Graces Alley
London, E1 8JB

Something to do Valentines week / weekend

Like the idea of drawing your loved one a picture for Valentine’s or even a hand drawn self portrait? As much as this is a sweet gesture, take our advice and instead leave this to the professionals, and by this we don’t mean purchasing a larger than life red and pink card from a high street retailer with a cheesy strapline and a cartoon image of someone that sort of resembles you…

Save your embarrassments and enjoy a little culture this Valentine’s without having to purchase your own HB pencil and craft papers.

World renowned illustrator Mr Quentin Blake (Roald Dahl’s right hand man) has saved us all by putting on a exhibition of 18 exuberant pencil drawings which depict women avoiding or embracing Cupid’s arrow.

Opening on Valentine’s Day, this exhibition reveals Quentin Blake’s personal reflections on the joy, folly and sorrow of love with his characteristic humour.

If you’re looking for a little gift then I’m we’re sure there will be postcards to purchase.  There might even be postcards of his other drawings over the past 40 years.

If you look like Mr Twit then you could be in luck at finding that card that resembles you…Win Win!

Tickets from £8.50
14th Feb – 29th April, 10am – 6pm
2 Granary Square, Kings Cross, London N1C 4BH

Something to eat

It’s hard to go out on Valentine’s night without thinking ‘Are we just another unimaginative couple who have booked at table and sat beside another 30 other couples who have done the same thing?’

Well this is possibly hard to avoid on the 14th Feb but one place where you will feel like it’s a normal night without the red roses, romantic music (it never is) and couples holding giant cuddly teddies is, Theo’s Pizzeria in Camberwell.

Quickly becoming everyone’s favourite pizza venue in South London, if not the whole of London, Theo’s is a place to go whether you’re out with your partner, friends or eating alone, even if it is Valentine’s night.

Not only is the pizza incredible but the starters and drink are pretty spot on too.  From fan favourite potato and mozzarella croquettes to aubergine parmigiana to start, to a choice of over 10 delicious pizzas whatever your taste, Theo’s really does have it covered.

Great atmosphere, friendly staff and it won’t break the bank.  

You’re on to a winner if you visit on the 14th…or the 15th or the 16th, 17th, 18th or the…You get what I’m saying!

Theo’s Pizzeria
2 Grove Lane, London SE5 8SY / 020 3026 4224
