Valentine’s Day in Bristol

Valentine’s Day in Bristol

When I think of Valentine’s Day, I think of romantic evening meals out, vibrant bouquets of red roses and boxes of posh chocolates (where I usually only end up liking about 10% of them anyway).

There’s so much going on in Bristol this Valentine’s Day, so there’s no need to opt for the standard gifts that somehow relinquish the element of surprise.

Whether you’re looking forward to celebrating this Valentine’s Day with your other half, or perhaps you’re organising a ‘Galentine’s Day’ with your best mates, these Bristol based suggestions should help you plan a night to remember.


Dirty Dancing 30th Anniversary Screening at the Everyman Cinema, White Ladies Road

This Valentine’s Day, you can go and see Dirty Dancing at The Everyman Cinema to celebrate it’s 30th Anniversary! I’ve been to this cinema once to see a talk for Bristol’s Social Media Week, and the venue was just as amazing as I’d expected. The seats are a gorgeous red velvet (perfect to keep up with the Valentine’s theme…) and so comfortable to cosy up in. They are a mix of love-seats designed for two and individual armchairs to suit every possible arse-requirement!


The Love Walk at Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm
During February, you can come to Noah’s Ark for a guided tour of all the animals happily coupled up. Cute! This event is not limited to Valentine’s Day, you can go between Saturday 11th – 25th February. There are additional activities going on around the zoo including craft workshops and face paints so it can be an experience for the whole family. The thing I like about Noah’s Ark is that the animals are outdoors, and their enclosures are a lot bigger than you’d find in a standard zoo.

Mother Disco Presents: House of Love

This event is all about celebrating the sweet music from “the guardians of Baby Makin’, the healers of heartbreak and the lovers of love.” All profits are going towards supporting Bristol based artists.

It’s being held at The Doghouse from 10pm and tickets are only £3.50 plus booking fee!


Hope this has given you a few ideas of things to do on the 14th!
