The Bombed Out Church has three romantic events for Valentine’s Day
1 year ago
The Bombed Out Church has lined up three super-loved up events to treat someone special this Valentine’s Day.
There’ll be a double classic movie screening on the weekend before, followed by an evening of romantic classical pieces played on the harp on Valentine’s Day itself, all under the stars in St Luke’s beautiful open air setting.
The first film showing, at teatime on Saturday February 11 (doors 5pm and screening at 5.30pm), is the Hollywood musical favourite Singin’ In The Rain with Gene Kelly.
Once the credits roll on that one, it’s time for one of the most iconic big screen love stories ever – Breakfast at Tiffany’s – with doors at 7.15pm for a 7.45pm start.
The Bombed Out Church is going all-out to make Valentine’s an extra special experience, so not only can you watch the movies all snuggled up under blankets with your other half, you’ll be able to keep nice and cosy with gorgeous hot drinks brought to your seat.
As well as the usual bar, there’s a choice of boozy hot chocolates, including one for Bailey’s lovers, mulled wine and hot cider plus teas and coffees.
And you can order snacks to share – because it is Valentine’s Day after all – from your phone so you don’t even have to prise yourself away from your date to go to the bar!
If you fancy something more to eat, you can get hot food on the way in from a street food pop-up in the gardens, serving hot dogs, burgers and chips.
The romantic mood carries on up to the 14th, when the Bombed Out Church has a unique musical evening – Romancing The Harp.
Talented internationally renowned harpist Keziah Thomas will be playing the top 10 most romantic classical melodies ever written including arrangements by Mozart, Vaughan Williams and Bernstein.
Keziah gave a solo concert of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons at St Luke’s last summer and it was so popular, she’s back for another magical performance.
Romancing the Harp is doors 6pm, for a 6.30pm start, and the concert will go on for around 45 minutes. There’ll also be drinks and snacks available again, although no hot food this time because it’s only a short event.
With its full spring/summer calendar still to be announced, the Bombed Out Church does have one other date in the diary lined up for February.
That’s a Maker’s Market on Sunday February 19 which will bring together some of the North West’s finest makers, bakers and creators.
Expect lots of great art, craft and street food – it’s free admission, no ticket needed, just a suggested donation of £1 which goes towards St Luke’s upkeep and community projects.
Tickets for the two Valentine’s movies, and Romancing the Harp, can be booked through the Bombed Out Church website. https://www.slboc.com/whats-on
