“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).
The good news this year is that Valentine’s day doesn’t clash with any football matches but the 2015 Cricket world cup tickets go on sale on the 14th, so ladies… if you really love him…
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!
Once – The hit romantic movie has come to the London stage. Two people fall in love through their love of music.
Dirty Dancing – yes it’s back, and do you know why? Because no-one puts baby in a corner, but they do put her in the Piccadilly Theatre, London.
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!
Mamma Mia! Lots of fun but whilst the ending is romantic it is not for those with wedding jitters (and gentlemen, don’t, for goodness sake, take her to see Stranger on a Train)!
Phantom of the Opera. Beautiful music – the most famous night out at the theatre.
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!?
