Feline Lonely Valentine’s Day event
On the look out for your purrfect partner...? We love this initiative by the Battersea Cats & Dogs Home bringing together cat lovers and their potential new furry friends. Blending bubbly with balls of fur, the event is set to be a relaxed way to spend this Valentine’s Day.
Those that find true love can give a new forever home to one of the 3,000 cats the charity takes in each year.
When: February 14th 2017
What: Day-time event with cats at its core
Where: 4 Battersea Park Rd, London SW8 4AA
Why: Because what’s not to like about champagne and cats
How: Get tickets at the Feline Lonely event page
Lady and the Tramp at The Book Club
Established Shoreditch meeting point the Book Club is being transformed into Tony’s Town Square Restaurant from the wonderful Disney classic, ‘Lady and the Tramp’. What makes it extra quirky is that not only is there a special dog-friendly screening, but everything is kitted up to ensure your pooch has an equally special Valentine’s night!
For the humans, there’s romance: candles on checked tablecloths, chefs in white, spaghetti and meatballs plus an accordion player.
For your hounds: a free bottle of canine wine CharDOGnay and meatball treats.
When: February 14th 2017 at 7:30pm
What: Lady and the Tramp dog-friendly screening

Valentine’s Walk by All dogs matter
For the more active types, the late morning walk organised by canine charity, All Dogs Matter, will be sure to give you that Sunday funday fix.
Tickets are just £5 per pooch and include treats from the lovely folks at Lily’s kitchen and a best dressed competition. After the walk there’ll be time to meet and greet the other participating couples and grab a spot of lunch from the dog-friendly Garden Gate pub.
When: Sunday February 12th 2017 from 10:30am to 12pm.
What: Human and hound walk and dress up competition.
