Ladies, learn how to woo a gentleman at Hendrick's Unusual Month of Reverse Courtship

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 their advances, two schools will operate throughout the country:

•    Ladies School of Nuptial Conquest will teach the forgotten arts of courtship so that cunning ladies can seduce the gentlemen in their sights

•    Hendrick’s School of Scoundrels teaching the tricks of how to best avoid these advances in a polite and refined way

Come the end of the month, 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!
