“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 – a pressie, flowers or just a night in – but beware: apparently a kettle with a rose in it does not count (even if the old one is broken) and a night in does not include watching Newcastle, Liverpool, Chelsea or Tottenham in the first leg of the Europa League Knock-out phase! Oh yes – they clash: I checked!
So may I suggest that maybe a trip to the theatre in London might just save your bacon in 2013?
Valentine’s Day is on a Thursday this year so you can either just get away for the evening or really push the boat out and start your weekend early. Otherwise you can book a romantic weekend away – thus avoiding the Europa League!
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 we may still have tickets for if you don’t want to stay overnight, or if you would like to come to London over the weekend.
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!
Shrek – The Musical. Very romantic – but if your partner is touchy about their sticky out ears then maybe you should avoid this one!
Midnight Tango – If you have been gripped by Strictly fever then this passionate latin dance show starring Vincent and Flavia from the show will have your heart beating a little faster!
Mamma Mia! Lots of fun but whilst the ending is romantic it is not for those with wedding jitters! Breaks with top price seats from £127pp
Phantom of the Opera. Beautiful music – the most famous night out at the theatre. Breaks with mid price seats from £94 pp
Late availabilty: Our full list of shows available on the day itself is at http://bookings.theatrebreaks.co.uk/Theatre/shows/2-tickets/14-Feb-2013
