Valentines Ideas – What West End Shows to Woo to!
Valentines Day: What to Do in 2024
“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 Wednesday in 2024 so you can either push the boat out and have a couple of days off work for a romantic midweek break to London or just nip up to town for the evening.
But it also means that if you are reading this on Tuesday 13th, there is still time to book a weekend Valentine Break, like you meant to do it all along!
What to see in London for Valentine’s Day?
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 need some steering in the right direction, West End shows to see in 2024 Valentine’s Day may start with
Moulin Rouge – the musical based on Baz Luhrmann’s hit movie is a great choice – it literally tells us that, “The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is to love and be loved in return”
Crazy For You
If you love an old fashioned love story, Crazy for you, with musical by George and Ira Gershwin, will hit you soft spot: Another musical about theatre folk and love and featuring songs like Crazy for you, Embraceable you, Someone to watch over me, Naughty Baby and Shall we Dance… it’s got ROMANCE written all over it!
Other great shows for a London Valentine Break
Guys and Dolls: Gangester, Dames, Dice and the Salvation Army. They don’t make musicals like this any more!
Phantom of the Opera. Beautiful music, lots of romance – the most famous night out at the theatre.
Mamma Mia! Lots of fun. The old ABBA hit factory churns out the songs as Sophie looks for her real dad on the eve of her idyllic Greek island wedding.
Les Miserables – As students try to kick start a revolution, one man’s battle to protect his family brings us a slice of 19th century Paris that has wowed West Audiences for almost 40 years!
But what ever you choose to see this Valentine, a theatre break is a superbly romantic occasion in what is a wonderfully romantic city.
I hope you have a great night!
