“Valentines Day” – to the romantically challenged, these are probably two of the most scariest words you’ll hear this winter.
You are told – oh anything will do! But beware: apparently a kettle with a rose in it does not count (even if the old one is broken).
But of course a trip to the theatre in London might just be the perfect solution?
Valentine’s Day is on a Friday this year so you can either just get away for the evening or really push the boat out and start your weekend early.
Well a night out at the theatre is a lovely thing to do anyway, so it doesn’t really matter what you see. But if you want a romantic theme for the whole night then you have quite a few choices as London is very “loved-up” at the moment!
Check above for theatre breaks still available, but here is a list of shows that would be perfect for a romantic city break.
The Bodyguard – the musical. It’s like the film, it’s all about a girl who “will always love…” her bodyguard! whilst singing Whitney Houston power ballads. Perfect really! Stars Beverley Knight
Once - The hit romantic movie has come to the London stage. An Irish musician and an imigrant single mum fall in love through their love of music.
From Here to Eternity – Tim Rice’s new musical adaptation of the classic movie of American soldiers falling in love on Hawaii and rolling about in the surf! Darius Campbell is exactly right as the Burt Lancaster part and the music is great too with Tim Rice’s lyrics helping the story along. Some super performances from the other leads too
Mamma Mia! Lots of fun. The old ABBA hit factory churns out the songs as Donna looks for her real dad on the eve of her wedding.
This year, for the first time, you can book a theatre break to New York for Valentine’s day through our sister site. Once, Phantom, Chicago, Motown and Disney’s Newsies and The Lion King are all included and you can also book a romantic cruise round the harbour… or maybe a Sex and the City bus tour!?
