The team behind boutique festival Winterwell will host London’s greatest love in on Friday 10th February with a true celebration of romance, crushes, flirting, dirty dancing and fancy dress flings at their Head Over Heels Valentine Special.

Following on from their hugely successful Halloween party at West London’s hottest location, The Loft, the Valentine’s Special will take place at the same venue. Winterwell constantly strive to push their creative boundaries and now have Arts Director Emma Winter and her team at the helm. From 9pm onwards romatic revellers will enter a lover’s paradise with walls covered in hearts of all sizes, a kissing booth and plush reclining areas for the amorous and intimate alcoves to whisper sweet nothings to the object of your desire.

Guests are asked to throw themselves into the fancy dress theme quite literally and to focus on their heads and heels, adorning themselves in feathers, hats, masks, slippers and kinky boots and other tititllating attire. Music will truly be the food of love at this party, with live music and DJ sets spanning three different rooms. Acclaimed acts include; Bad Zuke from The Jinks, Count Sizzle, Lou Young, Konal, Lorry, Ellie Shepherd and Bam Bam drum band, an elecrifying live mobile troupe mixing heavy grooves, flamboyant dance and carnival style performances.

Set in the heart of Gloucestershire, Winterwell is truly the feel good festival, attracting like-minded people who believe that every aspect of a festival should be pleasurable. The team behind the three day event are solely geared towards making their guests comfortable which means: No long hikes (especially from the car park), no endless queues, free hot showers, spacious camping areas, delicious food and drink stalls, all in a beautiful and idyllic setting.

Josh Ford, the Director of Winterwell Events, has organised music events for over ten years and Winterwell acts in recent years have included: Norman Jay, DJ Yoda, The Nextmen, The Stornerways, Slow Club, Fanfarlo, Animal Kingdom, Metronomy and many more. With the festival going from strength to strength, This year’s event will take place on June 29th-1st July and looks set to be the best year yet.

Cupid’s coming down and he’ll be packing serious heat at Head Over Heels.
