On the 29th of February each leap year, the normal rules of courtship are reversed, and women may freely pursue and propose to gentlemen of their choice. To celebrate this topsy turvy scenario, Hendrick’s Unusual Month of Reverse Courtship will be hosting a variety of events in the build up to this delightfully peculiar day.
Offering guidance for ladies wishing to woo and gentlemen hoping to avoid, two schools will operate throughout the country:
The Ladies School of Nuptial Conquest will teach the forgotten arts of courtship so that cunning ladies can seduce the gentlemen in their sights.
The Hendrick’s School of Scoundrels shares the tricks of how to best avoid these advances in a polite and refined way
These two schools will be touring the finest bar room establishments in throughout February:
Tuesday 7th February
Bristol: Milk Thistle, Quay Head House, Colston Avenue, Bristol BS1 1EB
Wednesday 8th February
Leeds: The Maven, First Floor, 1 Call Lane, Leeds, LS1 7DH
Thursday 9th February
Manchester: Apotheca Bar, 17 Thomas Street, Northern Quarter, Manchester M4 1FS
Friday 10th February
Edinburgh: Dragonfly, 52 West Port, Edinburgh EH1 2LD
Monday 20th February
London: The Lonsdale, 48 Lonsdale Road W11 2DE
At the end of Feb, close to the big day, Hendrick’s Preposterous Proposal Throne will pop up at a variety of London locations offering ladies an opportunity to pop the question and make an honourable man of their evasive partner.
