Make a Leap of Faith tomorrow on Hendrick's Preposterous Proposal Throne

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. The number one piece of advice for ladies looking to obtain their desired gent’s hand in marriage is to conduct their proposal in public – no self-respecting rotter would tarnish their reputation by leaving a lady so helplessly adrift.

Hendrick’s Preposterous Proposal Throne will be popping up in the capital, inviting ladies across the city to get down on one knee and perform the duly deed of proposal at the following locations throughout London:

Wednesday 29th February:

0900 – 1030:  Embankment, Lambeth Bridge SE1 7SG (Corner of Lambeth Bridge / Lambeth Palace Road)

1245 – 1415:  Potters Fields Park, London Bridge SE1 2 (off Tooley St / Potters Field)

We invite you to share this momentous day and be captured in a most unusual cucumber & rose picture at London’s iconic locations.
