The sights, sounds and taste of love will surround the event; from the sound of love songs, to a range of flirtatious activities for couples.

Viewers will be entranced by its depiction of love for couples of every generation.
As always, there will be one of EbonyLife’s famous after-parties, refreshed by Cîroc
vodka, for those who want to keep going until the early hours. The dress code is a simple one – a dash of Valentine red, with a lot of passion!
