In-love Great Dunmow couples will celebrate at a Valentine's fundraiser ball in Foakes Hall.
The Valentine's Flitch Ball begins at 7pm on Saturday (February 12).
The black-tie event raises money for the Dunmow Flitch Trials - when couples who can convince a jury that they have not wished themselves unmarried "for a year and a day" win a side of bacon.
Lesley-Ann Mayhew, a Flitch committee member, said: "It’s great to see the Flitch - a unique and special event - supported by the Valentine’s Flitch Ball.
"There looks to be a great line-up for the evening with a drinks reception followed by three-course dinner, raffle and live band, The Jjarrs."
Event organisers are seeking raffle prizes for the Valentines' Flitch Ball.
Lesley-Ann said that anybody who can donate a prize or who would still like tickets should email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Flitch Trials take place on July 9, 2022.
