Ah, Valentine’s Day! Time to put your creative thinking caps on for special ways to celebrate the day of love this year. OR you could let Candlelight do all the work for you. Instead of landing on a long-stem rose or cheesy card, surprise your Valentine with a captivating Candlelight concert. Not convinced that Cupid would approve? Read on to discover some of the reasons why Candlelight is THE romantic plan for a memorable evening out.
1. Candles are undeniably romantic
“Candle in the Wind”, “Old Flames Can’t Hold a Candle to You”, “Eternal Flame”—only three of countless love songs containing references to, yes you guessed it, candlelight. Although candles weren’t used to set the mood until long after chivalry in the Middle Ages, and the continued popularity of love letters in the 19th century, from the 80s onwards, as society relied more on electricity, the dated use of candles ironically became a novel excuse to use them during romantic moments.
The Candlelight series keeps the passionate glow of candles burning bright with mesmerising performances around the world. While sitting surrounded by thousands of them, a sense of intimacy is created and as you gaze into your date’s eyes, pupils dilated and all, you’ll find yourself immersed in candlelight’s multi-sensory charm.
2. Listening to live music
When one thinks of date ideas, concert tickets definitely spring to mind. If you and/or that special someone in your life has yet to experience a Candlelight performance, then choosing to mark the loved-up occasion with a candlelit concert in Dublin will be even more special. Find your seats at a stunning venue and listen to talented musicians recreate some of your favourite songs and eternal compositions.
3. Candlelight is the perfect pre or post-dinner plan
If you’re like the rest of the world’s lovebirds, you’re likely going to want to make the most of the evening by booking dinner at a fab restaurant. With two performances generally taking place on the day of each concert, you can choose to have an early meal or toast to the unforgettable time spent at an enchanting Candlelight concert.
