VALENTINE’S DAY EVENTS
What could be more romantic than stars and flowers?
Dark Skies Festival 9-25 February This Valentine’s Day, wrap up warm and head for the deep, dark solitude of Britain’s national parks. Away from the radiance of the city, fall in love with the Yorkshire Dales’ starry sky or take on a night-run through magical Dalby Forest in the North York Moors. Further south, join a night photography workshop on the South Downs or marvel at moon-lit waves with a walk on Exmoor’s atmospheric cliffs. skiesnationalparks.org.uk
RHS Early Spring Plant Fair 13–14 February
Let passion blossom this February at the RHS Early Spring Plant Fair in London. There’s plenty to experience, from an anatomical heart, made entirely from flowers, to an array of exciting workshops, including how to make flower crowns and floral cupcake decorations. Things are made all the more romantic with a free glass of ‘Love Potion’ on entry. rhs.org.uk
