Artful Badger, the feral collective born and raised at the Secret Garden Party, get loved-up for Valentine's Day by taking over The Old Vic Tunnels for a whole weekend of romantic mischief. The crew have prepared two rooms of bird-based fun for the occasion, featuring live bands, DJs and interactive theatre. You can woo the object of your desires by sending them a Kingfisher Kissogram or ruffling your feathers in a in a peacock mating competition, and if you're looking for a partner to share your passion for Japanese rope bondage, head to the Shibari room and you might just be in luck. Alongside sets from the Mystery Jets, Justin Robertson, Mojo Filter, the wonderful Sam Booth will be on hand to lay down smooth grooves worthy of a master carpenter. There are also African rhythms massage, body painting and, as you'd expect from The Artful Badger team, outrageous fancy dress, themed around lovestruck birds – think flirtatious falcons, ravishing robins, sexy seagulls. Quite possibly the most eccentric way to celebrate Valentine's Day in London.
