Lockdown Valentine's Guide: Date Night Activities
With Valentine’s Day fast approaching on the horizon, let’s have a look at some of the best virtual lockdown activities to entertain yourself and your loved ones this February. Whether you’re together in the same household or separated across the UK, here are a few of our favourite experiences to bring you that bit closer.
Romantic virtual and remote experiences
Each month the Dalston Wine Club, curated by Hannah Crosbie, selects the best producers and wine regions for you to explore and discover at home. February sees the spotlight shine on the Czech Republic and insights into natural wines and sustainable winemaking.
In their own words ‘join the wine club that’s shaking up the industry’.

Join the trend that’s taken the UK by storm over the past 12 months and revisit your creative side with one of Sculpd’s at-home pottery kits. Make plant-pots, vases, candlestick holders or anything else you can think to craft yourself.
Their set comes with easy-to-work air-dry clay, tools and paints – simply bring your best imagination.
