Valentine's Day, Chinese New Year, Brit Awards ...
ARE JUST SOME OF THIS MONTH'S EVENTS
Valentine's Day, Chinese New Year and Pancake Day are just some of this month's events. February is of course the month of lurve, with Valentine's Day on the 14th. But there are plenty of other reasons to celebrate - with Chinese New Year on the 8th, MCM Comic Con in the Midlands on the 13th and of course Pancake Day on the 9th. Let the fun begin!
The Six Nations is an international rugby union competition between six sides, hence the name! The six nations taking part are England, France, Ireland, Scotland, Italy and Wales. It's a brilliant opportunity to watch fast-paced and exciting rugby matches between sports men at the very top of their game... and, of course, to paint our faces with our country's flag!
Whether you grew up during the decade, or weren't even a twinkle in your father's eye by 1980, everyone loves the 1970s, don't they? Chopper bikes, space hoppers, flares, awful patterns on polyester shirts with ridiculously large collars ... what's not to love! Of course, we all love to poke fun at the fashions and styles of the 1970s, but give us half a chance and we'll all be there with our afro wigs and platform shoes
Everyone knows that February 14th is Valentine's Day, the day when we send an anonymous card to the object of our affection. Valentine's Day has become a massive thing these days, with restaurants and florists expecting to be fully booked, and boxes of chocolates selling like hot cakes. Of course, if you're single Valentine's Day can seem like it's not much fun - but there is still plenty of opportunity to join in with festivities and celebrate friendships and loved ones instead.
This year Easter is early, with pancake day falling on February 9th. Now is the time to get out that frying pan and practise your flipping action, with pancake day races taking place up and down the country ... and of course, the best part about a pancake day race is the fancy dress! What will you dress as this year? Checkout our funny costumes selection to get started ...
Chinese New Year falls on Monday February 8th this year, with celebrations beginnign the day before, and lasting until the Lantern Procession on the 15th day. This year we celebrate the beginning of the Year of the Monkey. We can't wait to see the beautiful, bright and elaborate designs and costumes in parades and celebrations all over the country! Welcome to the year of the Monkey!
MCM Comic Conventions are the UK's number 1 popular culture shows - and we can see why. Every event they organise is packed with star guests, dealer stalls, cosplay and all manner of entertainment. Comic Con Midlands, held in Telford on February 13th, is no exception. Look out for '80s timelord Sylvester McCoy, who has been announced as a special guest at this year's event.
This February 24th the Brits will return to the O2 with all the glitz and glam we've come to expect - as well as amazing performances, and of course some awards! The brilliant thing about the Brits is that the venue allows the general public to attend in the stalls, above where celebrities sit at their tables. Excitingly, Adele has been confirmed as a performer at this year's ceremony. Who could forget her amazing, spine-tingling performance of Someone Like You in 2011? Here's hoping there'll be another cracking performance this year!
A unique spin on Maleficent, Sleeping Beauty cosplay. Love the hair.
