Here are this week’s Hot Tickets in the UK. Check back every Wednesday at noon, GMT for stellar events that fit the interests of locals and tourists alike.
Friday, February 10 Gutter Lane: Sugar and Spice Winters Delight Jekyll & Hyde, Edinburgh On the second Friday of every month, within the Jekyll & Hyde Bar, ‘Gutter Lane,’ a bustling Victorian backstreet, staggers to life. With performers as dubious as they are memorable, there will be something to tease and excite all. The Lane itself boasts differing attractions from month to month including custom jewelry stalls, musicians and ad hoc performances. For those bold enough to walk the lane The Aerie Theatre awaits. This treasure trove for the curious is home to the heart of Gutter Lane: its performances. Here you will encounter exotic burlesque, shameful comedy, daring acrobatics and much, much more
Saturday, February 11 Anti-Valentine’s Flash Bash The Kursaal (Function Suite), Southend-on-Sea Join the heartbreakers, home wreckers and serial daters of Essex in rebelling against stupid Cupid and his painful arrows. Love is for losers. The Seaside Sirens are back with their first annual event of the year – The Anti-Valentine’s Flash Bash. If you came to the event last year you already know you’re in for a treat! Posh venue, great bands, loads of roller girls letting their hair down and so much more. The best bit is tickets are even cheaper this year at only £8 each. Please note that due to the licensed bar and the content of some of the entertainment, this is an over 18 only event.

Saturday, February 11 Valentine’s Weekend with The Tassel Club Hoxton Hall, London The Tassel Club will host another event in Hoxton Hall this Saturday and it’s a good time to celebrate (and maybe commiserate) all things Valentines.
