Reclaim Love 10th Anniversary

Like all right-minded people, I'm anti-valentines. Obviously I am. But I'm also a little bit anti-anti-valentines: it just seems so cynical to declare all out war against amour. Money certainly cannot buy you love, but nobody likes a romance grinch. Well, if you're into eros but don't think it necessarily needs to be prettily packaged and delieved by a barber shop quartet, Reclaim Love is the perfect event for you. Every year on the nearest Saturday to Valentine's Day people all over the world gather to show their love in a non-commercial outpouring of emotion – music, face-paints, shared food, big smiles and free hugs take the place of cards and cut-flowers. This year is their tenth anniversary, so an extra special time to get down to the place it all began - the Eros statue in Picadilly Circus - join hands with a stranger and say: may all beings in all the worlds be happy and at peace. Aww... Vyvian Raoul
