Gather all of your gal pals, dig out the cocktail shaker and mark your calendars for Galentine's Day on February 13. This year we are focusing on what brings us joy, and this definitely does. Whether you're gleefully single, happily coupled or somewhere in between, it's the perfect excuse to get dressed up, have a few drinks with your pals, and celebrate your friendship.
Despite this year's celebrations being over zoom, we've organised a night you can all get involved in.
