The Most Stylish Places To…NOT Celebrate Valentine’s Day


“Roses are red,

Violets are blue,

I’m sick of hearing about Valentine’s Day… are you?”

I may be single, and yes I may be accused of being a raging, bra-burning femininst moaning about the fact that I am single, but I just really do not like February 14.

If you are in a relationship, I hope you have the most cringe-worthy night of your lives, expensive food, kinky underwear and cheap flowers included.

But for us singletons, embrace this Friday night. All the snakey boys who slither around town centres will be locked up with their girlfriends, and you and your single friends have unlimited ideas of how to spend your single Valentine’s night.

Fashion North presents the most stylish places to NOT celebrate Valentine’s Day:

1) Empire Cinema, Sunderland

Although you may think the cinema is your idea of hell on V-Day, back row necking, no thanks! You HAVE to go and see Endless Love out on February 14. Grab your friends and a bucket load of maltesers and swoon over the talent on offer. If it all gets too much, throw said maltesers at the couples *at your own risk.*

Check out Empire Cinema’s website here for all the listings.

2)  A Piñata Party At Home

Have a piñata party a la the film Valentine’s Day. A group of girls in the same predicament as us… hating on V-Day, decide to buy a piñata and go all Jennifer Garner on it after a lot of wine (see image above). Relieve some stress and declare your hate for V Day, and as your prize it rains chocolate and sweets, perfect! Buy this little unicorn from ASDA for £7.

3) Perdu’s Cocktail Making Masterclass, Newcastle


To forget all relationship woes, grab six of your friends and get yourselves to Perdu for an exclusive cocktail making masterclass.
