5 Cool London Date Ideas This Week 11/2 – 17/2

If the plastic red love hearts, overpriced chocolates and sad looking “bouquets” of flowers from Lidl have got to you rolling your eyes and dry-reaching, don’t worry we’re right there with you! This week we’re bringing you the most Un-Valentines Day things to do this week. Sadly tickets to the Smudged Anti-Valentines Day Murder Mystery – A Date With Death – have sold out so these are the next best thing.

After Dark at the Dungeons

What’s the most unromantic thing you can think of… The first time this year the London Dungeons open for their Lates series is on Valentines Day! Genius! Grab a Victorian inspired cocktail from the not-so-charming bar wench before you begin. You’ll certainly need it as you embark on this late night tour of London’s 1000 gruesome, gory and terrifying past.

A Fortnight of Tears

Remember the un-made bed that was the talk of the town back in 1998, well she’s back baby! Tracy Emin’s latest exhibition is opening at the awesome White Cube Gallery in Bermondsey starting this week. The exhibition is brutally honest as she echoes her trials and tribulations of insomnia, mourning and loss. Nothing like a cheery outing on Valentines Day!

Here’s Johnny!

Axe throwing… on Valentines Day… you couldn’t make it up! The awesome Whistlepunks of Vauxhall will teach you the art of axe throwing, whilst you socialise with a banging soundtrack to get you fired up! You’ll get a good few practice rounds in before raising the tempo in tournament! Top points for whoever does the best Jack Nicholson impression!

The Breakup Monologues

This awesome podcast presenter, Rosie Wilby, will be recording two live episodes at East London’s Poplar Union on the eve of Valentines Day. She’ll be joined by a number of guests all set to guarantee a giggle, as they discuss the awkward elements of dating, relationships and break ups. Tragedy plus time equals comedy right?!


Have you ever wanted to know what happens in the afterlife? Vault Festival’s Séance explores the psychology if a group of people who have been bombarded with suggestible material. If that’s too spooky for you, you can head on down to the all singing all dancing musical – We’ve Got Eachother, but you get to decide on the plot!

Until next week….
