Ok so we didn’t mention this in the title, but The Creameries are cancelling Valentine’s Day this year, favouring a different saint instead: St Trifon. The patron saint of gardeners and wine makers in Bulgaria, his feast day is celebrated on 14 February each year. On that day, bread is baked and folk raise a glass (or three) to encourage the growth of the vines at the start of Spring. What better excuse, then, for getting your besties round The Creameries’ communal tables to enjoy a feast of bread, wine, beer and cheese; the perfect foil to overpriced red stems and padded cards with twee poems. The limited, all inclusive tickets are worth £36.75 per person – and we’ve got four (worth a total of £147) up for grabs so you and three of your friends can enjoy the St Trifon’s Eve Celebration together. Soppy love songs? Scratch that. Over in Chorlton, it’s cheesey choices all the way. To be in with a chance of winning the chance to celebrate the love of wine and bread with your mates this Valentine’s Day at The Creameries, simply enter your details into the form below and press ‘send’. All entrants will be automatically subscribed to our twice weekly mailing list. We don’t share your details with anyone else and you can unsubscribe at any time. Competition closes at midnight on Monday 11 February and the winner will be announced the following day.

Thu 14 Feb, The Creameries, 406 Wilbraham Road, Chorlton, Manchester, M21 0SD, Tel: 0161 312 8328, 7pm, £36.75 per person, www.universe.com
