The Canopy Market Valentine’s Special is sure to sweep you off your feet with a variety of quirky events to enjoy, whether you’re heading down with your nearest, or with colleagues for after work drinks.
Endear yourself to your loved ones by treating them to one-of-a-kind gifts, hand-crafted chocolate, or gorgeous flowers while being serenaded with the best poetry and brass band music London has to offer.
If it’s all things organic that get your heart racing then the Valentine’s Supper Club at the Skip Garden will be a magical night where you can share your love of ecological and ethical foods. Or if you’re after something a little more intimate then the many bars and restaurants of King’s Cross are the perfect place to find a cosy corner – try the Anthracite Martini Lounge and enjoy some Valentine’s Day cocktails along with canapes and live jazz.
Here is the complete line-up of events:
