On top of all this, a captivating sculptural heart (LOVE IRL) by artist Stuart Langley will be installed on the day in Kennedy Way. This touring art installation is perfect for ‘love your selfies’.

Commissioned by The Culture House and North East Lincolnshire Council, artist Stuart Langley has created a ‘captivating sculptural heart’, encouraging enjoyment of real world moments and visualising what love in real life feels life – colourful fragmented pieces that form a whole – while playfully inviting audiences to pose, snap and share their interaction with it.

Look out for further announcements as LOVE IRL – currently on display at Grimsby Minster Tuesday – Sat 9.30am – 2.30pm, will also be seen in Cleethorpes at a location in Cleethorpes over the weekend of 26 and 27 Feb.

Delighted that events are happening for all the family on either side of Valentine’s Day, North East Lincolnshire Council’s Portfolio Holder for Economic Growth, Housing and Tourism Cllr Callum Procter said:

“We must all play our part in bringing life back into our town centres. After two extremely challenging years we are asking people to enjoy free fun for all ages, whilst enjoying browsing our shops and markets, or perhaps enjoying a bite to eat, a drink and a chat. Let’s show our shops and businesses that we LOVE them.”

LOVE CLEETHORPES takes place on Saturday 19 February
