Things To Do in Camden on Valentine's Day
We've taken the stress out of choosing something to do on Valentine's Day, whether you're single or taken...
As Valentine’s Day looms, it’s hard not to feel under pressure regardless of your Facebook relationship status - pressure to not sit at home with your cat and Netflix if you’re single, pressure to take your beloved somewhere epic if you aren’t. Well not to worry, we’ve rounded up the best things to do in Camden on Valentine’s Day whether you’re coupled up or not. The beauty of it? We’ve opted entirely for live music or comedy, so whether you’re on your own, with an awkward friend, or an other half that’s sulking because you didn’t get a table at Nobu, it doesn’t matter. You’ll still enjoy yourself.
A Night Of Marvin Gaye
What: If you Heard It Through The Grapevine that a serenade is the way to your partner’s heart, head to the Jazz Cafe for sexually-charged soul from Motown master Marvin Gaye. With a full live band performing all of the Prince of Soul’s hits, it could be the perfect way to get some Sexual Healing just in time for Valentine’s Day. Come on, Let’s Get It On...
Where: Jazz Cafe
What: Even if you haven’t got anyone to love, you can fall in love with the city of London with this night of music from young bands inspired by the city. Part of the Roundhouse’s Rising Festival, they bring together breakthrough acts with young producers to plan and deliver events. This event's acts include Bat and Ball, Chloe Leigh and the Willow Trio and Easy Stride Band.
Where: Sackler Space, Roundhouse
When: From 7:30pm
The Second Sons
What: Like modern music to feel comfortably retro? The Second Sons made the rounds on the festival scene last year making their way through big names such as the Isle of Wight Festival. Influenced by the likes of The Rolling Stones, Muddy Water and Otis Redding, expect strong seventies rock’n’roll vibes. Plus, it’s free, you cheap date, you.
Where: The Blues Kitchen
The Lady’s and Gentleman’s Club
What: Join Paul Duncan McGarrity and Ben Van der Velde as well as a whole host of guests for this Victorian Club made modern. There’ll be curiosities, music, giggles (and obviously) the National Anthem to round off the evening in true, Victoriana style.
Where: Camden Comedy Club
When: From 8pm
