Great Entertainment this February
February, like its close neighbour January, gets a bad wrap for the long winter days and cold nights where very little seems to happen outside of Valentine’s Day. Not so in the great City of London. February brings with it not only the hint of a promise of spring, but a whole host of fun and exciting events and activities to attend or try for yourself.
