8 Shows to see this Valentines Day

Granted, you won’t be able to see them all at the same time – but here are 8 ideas.

A Safe Bet: 

For something that most people love – go for either The Book of Mormon or Wicked. The Book of Mormon is consistently found to be laugh-out-loud funny, and Wicked is a heartwarming tale loved by millions of people across the world.

For A Dance Lover: 

For anyone who loves Strictly or will happily dance around their bedroom, it has to be 42nd Street. The dancing is second to none, and it guarantees a fun night out for all.

The best way to get tickets is if you’re willing to queue in the morning – otherwise Rush Tickets on TodayTix are a good bet.

A bit more adventurous: 

If your other half is a semi-regular theatre-goer, you might want to venture into the territory of something like Barnum at the Menier Chocolate Factory, or Five Guys Named Moe at The Marble Arch Theatre.

For an immersive experience: 

Julius Caesar at the Bridge Theatre opened at the end of last month to critical acclaim, and you can get £15 tickets on TodayTix to really be part of the action.

For a refined Play: 

The Mousetrap’s numerous years in the west end really do speak for themselves. After almost 25,000 performances they’re still going strong.

For more of an experience:

Guildhall Art Gallery is offering an alternative Valentine’s Day experience on Friday 16th February. Inspired by the core themes in Nature Morte – one of the largest exhibitions ever presented by the gallery – this Late event promises an enjoyable night of music, art, taxidermy, drawing, and cocktails.

Watch a Victorian entertainment show in the roman amphitheatre, enjoy trying out still life drawing, flower pressing or tote bag making and learn about ‘ethical’ taxidermy with Jazmine Miles-Long. DJ Museum of Vinyl’s life and death-inspired playlist provide the soundtrack to the evening.
