LONDON

Singles Wine Tasting

The Avalon Pub and Dining Room, 16 Balham Hill, SW12

13 February. Tickets: £10

If you feel like sipping on some delicious wine, munching on canapés, and chatting to some like-minded single folk, then we suggest you head down to this event. Rank your fave wine, split into four categories, and if your choices match someone else’s, you could wine a blind date at The Avalon for Valentine’s the next day!

St Andrews,
 KY16

11-19 February. Tickets: £9, Monday to Thursday; £12, Friday to Sunday; child ticket (3-16 years), £5.50

For an alternative, yet beautiful way to spend an evening during this romantic week, follow the trail of these pretty flowers in a walk through some of the 70 acres of woods that span across the estate. Looking like a carpet of snow, the woods are lit up and you can spot interesting sculptures along the way. Afterwards, pop into the Snowdrop Café for a warming cup of tea. The kids will love this, too.
