Presented by May Q, Our Parlour Valentine's Special begins with Jim giving the history behind Aunt Sandra's Candy Factory, on the Castlereagh Road, one of Belfast's oldest sweet makers. Jim tempts us with specially made Valentine's sweets and describes the processes going into making them. The candy factory not only makes and sells a range of confectionary but encourages visits by groups to the factory.Long married couples Charlie and Cassie Towle and Bert and Martha McGrath (just now celebrating their diamond wedding anniversary) give an insight into what makes for a successful marriage. Sean McCaffery tells the background to St. Valentines Day and Valentine's relics now resting in Dublin. Finally a magnificent specially baked St. Valentine's cake is shared among the guests.
