Valentine’s Day is officially here, so expect to see a last minute dash for cards, flowers and chocolates. But if you’re not celebrating with a partner, you might be celebrating Galentine’s Day instead.

The unofficial day of Galentine’s falls on February 13, where singletons and friends come together to celebrate love. If you're looking for something you and your besties can do, we’ve put together a list of experiences to share with those you’re closest to.

Currently, Virgin Experience customers can get 20 per cent off experiences for a limited time only with the code LOVE20. If you’re after an evening of culture and arts, Virgin Experiences is offering Theatre and Dinner for Two in London for just £99. Included is a two-course pre-theatre meal, two upper circle or balcony seats at a West End show, choice from a selection of shows, and a gift pack.

The experience has an average rating of 4.1 out of five from 580 reviews. Kim Welman said: “Show was amazing and meal was lovely. The experience was bought before lockdown for us so it was worth the wait.” Michael said: “All round good experience. Good theatre seats and enjoyable meal in Thai Square. Relaxed atmosphere in the restaurant and friendly staff.”

While Bethany wrote: “Me and my mum received this as a gift for Christmas last year. Really enjoyed the show, great seats and the food in the given restaurant was amazing. Wasn’t much to chose from but never tasted Italian so nice.”
