Four Hot Dates For Valentines Day

Words by Billie Jenkins

1. An Igloo…at the top of the Shard, London.

With the strapline ’An Igloo. On Top of the Shard.’ And the £35 ticket including ’All night access to the Shard viewing platforms, a free cocktail, DJ’s and after party, free gelato, and a chance to hang out in an Igloo at 800ft’ we’re sold. ’But wait,’ we hear you say, ’the playlist includes Ice Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice and Cold as Ice by M.O.P. it can’t be that good.’ It’s a fucking sky Igloo guys. It’s happening.

Tickets for events, on February 12th, available at, £35.

2. Sausage making course: with the Northumberland Sausage Company, Northumberland.

For many, Valentines day is mostly about one thing: Porking. Whether you serious about bangers or you just turn up for the innuendo, this will be a memorable affair that leaves you with heaps of skills for future date nights. (We mean your cooking skills not your firm grip). We envision it as a kind of reenactment of the pottery scene from Ghost: but with more meat.

Sausage making course available at, £90 – £150.

3. Who Framed Roger Rabbit: screened by Future Cinema at the Troxy Cinema, East London.

Turns out there’s more than one rabbit that’s good for you love life. This screening of the 1988 classic, shown in a reimagining of The Ink and Paint club will have their heart beating right out of their chest.

Tickets available from, £31.50.

4. City of Seduction: part of Late London at The Museum of London.

Tiles removed from the walls of the Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese pub deemed to raunchy put on general display (proving nudey ladies were a great business plan long before Robin Thicke was born), absinthe tasting and crash course in the manners and make-up of Georgian prostitutes. Nerdy never felt this naughty.

Tickets available from, £10.
