Manifesting romance in lockdown can be a struggle, even for the best of us- luckily, Cupid is a key-worker. So with Valentine's day just round the corner, we thought we'd spruce up your calendar with some ideas on how to spice up your Sunday with help from some of our local legends. From lover's banquets delivered to your door, quizzes for the romantics to virtual life-drawing classes, we've got you covered.

The Laughing Heart
Our neighbour's over at the Laughing Heart have pieced together a sumptuous selection to spark romance into your evening.

To top it off, TLH have even thrown in a little discounted code for flowers from Grace & Thorn- a nice post-date gift to say, 'let's do that again!'.
