Travelling away on a romantic Valentine’s break? Whether you’re off to the Seychelles or doing business in Berlin, our free Valentine events are just the ticket to make your journey extra-special.

From 12th to 14th February we’ll have a mime artist, a caricaturist and plenty of romantic music performances to help get you in the mood. Read on to see what’s happening when …

All events take place in the departure lounge, after security.

Sometimes words just aren’t enough. Sometimes it’s all about a look, a gesture, something heartfelt yet unspoken. That’s probably what our mime artist would say, if he was allowed to speak.

It’s the starting point for all our performers (if they aren’t there, they’ll be at large somewhere in the departure lounge).
