Planning a party or hosting an event for Valentine’s Day? Here are 7 Valentine’s Day event ideas

With Valentine’s Day only a few weeks away and love very much in the air, we’re looking at 7 Valentine’s Day event ideas for any planning a Valentine’s party or event around February 14th. 

7 Valentine’s Day event ideas

Romantic film screening: whether you’d like to admit it or not, we’re all partial to a romantic film or 2 and what better time to watch a romantic film than on Valentine’s Day!? Hosting a romantic film screening in your local school’s hall or sports hall is a great way to bring your local community together whilst supporting your local school. 

Couples’ cookery class: what better way to bring couples together than by cooking a romantic 3 course meal for 2? Cooking together is thought to be a powerful bonding exercise between couples that improves communication, strengthens connections and builds trust. If this is something you’re considering, your local school’s dining room/canteen is the ideal facility to host this kind of event – affordable, well-located and featuring a generous range of amenities. 

Food and drink tasting events: Valentine’s Day tends to revolve around enjoying good food and drink with the person you love and hosting a wine or chocolate tasting event for an exclusive group of foodie couples is a lovely way to make attending couples feel special and enjoy each other’s company in a fun and unusual way. And, whether hosting a small and exclusive group of people or a large gathering of couples, your local school could prove to be the ideal venue – offering a range of facilities such as classrooms and sports halls, depending on the size of the space you need. 

Dance class: Salsa. Tango. Rumba. These are considered to be the most sensual and romantically charged dances couples can enjoy together, and participating in a dance class for Valentine’s Day is a sure fire way for couples to enjoy each other’s company, laugh and move together; make new friends, communicate in a meaningful way and have a lot of fun together. With this, a school dance studio, theatre or hall can be a great place to host this kind of event. 

Murder mystery dinner: murder mystery events can be a lot of fun and bring couple’s together, not only to enjoy good food and drinks, but also to work together as a team and problem-solve which, in turn, helps to improve communication, build trust and promote deductive reasoning skills.

Live music: another fun and exciting Valentine’s Day event idea is to host a live music event. Live music appeals to a wide range of people and listening to music is certainly an activity all couples can share in. What’s more, school theatres and school halls with a theatre set up are an affordable, accessible venue option for this type of event. 

Live comedy evening: following on from live music is hosting a live comedy evening. There are many benefits to couples laughing together – such as a shared sense of wellbeing, quality of life and general feelings of satisfaction.
