The best things to do this Valentine’s Day season – regardless of relationship status

Labels be damned – the season of Saint Valentine is the time to indulge in some wholesome festivities, regardless if you’re steering a situationship, chronically single or happily coupled up. Don’t want to be couped up while lovebirds gallivant around town? Keen to practice some self love? We’ve rounded up the best no-strings things happening this February, from romcom marathons to art classes.

Bloom your amateur artistry with a watercolour class – Museum of Brisbane wants you to fall in love this February with the wonders of watercolour. Hosted by Paper Hands artist Holly Neilson, this after-hours workshop teaches you the basics of working with watercolour paints. Find inspiration with a walk through the Rearranged: Art of the Flower exhibition and then let Holly guide you through crafting three botanical cards. With bubbles and brownies included, this beginner-friendly art workshop lets you connect with your creativity and witness as an artist at work. Secure you spot now.

Treat yourself to a self-care session with a side of sweets – Red Hill’s self-care sanctuary Vikasati Bathhouse has teamed up with Nodo, the makers of glorious gluten-free doughnuts, to create a wholesome Valentine’s Day experience that’s perfect for lovers and friends. Ditch the dinner date or Galentine’s night out and book in for a 90-minute Sanctuary Session at Vikasati Bathhouse, starting at $44 per person. During the session, you can both rejuvenate and connect as you meander between the hot and cold magnesium pools, ice bath and sauna, before rounding out the experience with a complimentary Valentine’s Day doughnut from Nodo. Plus, if you head in after 5:00 pm on Valentine’s Day, you’ll be treated to live tunes while you soak. How wholesome! Book in your Valentine’s Day Vikasati session here.

From February 7–14, find all of your favourites screening on the rolling hill of Roma Street Parkland.

Spend an evening with the saint of singlehood – Fran Lebowitz, her unabashed intelligence and her unparalleled charisma is coming to QPAC for one night. Famed for her sardonic humour and biting cultural criticism, there’s no better date than an evening with this icon of urban cool.

Let loose in this electric art experience – This one-night experience combines the work of composer Anna Whitaker and visual artist Riley Towers for a mesmerising intersection of visual art and electronic music.
