Loved up


Valentine's Day is almost upon us, and there’s plenty to see and do in the city with that special someone…

Still looking for where to go to wow your partner? Want to whisk them off their feet with a day of loved-up fun? We’ve picked out some of best events the city has to offer celebrating the most romantic day of the year!

If you’re looking for opulence, extravagance and a double helping of glamour, Cadbury House is throwing a Valentine’s Ball! Taking place on Saturday 11 February the ball starts at 6.30pm with sparkling wine and canapés on arrival. During the evening you’ll enjoy a delicious three-course meal, with the DJ playing plenty of romantic tunes into the wee hours—you can even upgrade to an overnight stay…

Perhaps you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind spot to pop the big question — is there a more ‘Bristol’ way of proposing than in a hot air balloon?! Exclusive balloon rides are available on Sunday 12 February—champagne (or juice) included—to impress that special someone with views across the rooftops and surrounding countryside.

Maybe you want something a bit more relaxed for a sociable night with friends—why not head to the Wardrobe Theatre on Monday 13 February for a night of the UK’s best spoken-word performers and poets? This edition features a romantic twist, with all of the pieces themed around love—the best kinds and the worst! Are you on Team Love or Team Cynicism? Starts 8pm.

Looking to woo your paramour with an out-of-the-ordinary event? Pop to The Hare Pub on Valentine’s Day for an evening of afternoon tea… yep, you read that right! Margot May Tearoom are hosting an “after-hours, love-inspired” extravaganza with boozy bakes, scones, finger sandwiches and more—it’s a decidedly different take on a British classic.
