Brush up on your manners for Valentine's at the Hendrick's Refined Courtship Clinic

Brought to you by the purveyors of the most splendid of gins, Hendrick’s, The free-to-use Hendrick’s Refined Courtship Clinic offers direction on principles and customs from bygone eras – while lavish Valentine’s gifting is in decline, economical good grace and manners are seen as increasingly attractive qualities.

The sessions are run by Dr Humphrey Sixwivs and Mrs Isabella Forlornicate.  Unusually, the sessions commence with a voluntary intake of Hendrick’s Gin & tonic, complete with restorative cucumber garnish.  After an assessment, treatment covers all aspects from polite body language to acceptable topics of conversation and procedures of courtship to reading signals from a lady’s fan movements.

Open from 10 – 14 Feb (12noon – 7pm) in Covent Garden, the famous 18th century red-light district.
