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.
Hendrick’s Commander of Special Operations Mr David Pipers, Leap Year Address to the Nation!
Offering guidance for ladies wishing to woo and gentlemen hoping to avoid, 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
These two schools will be touring the finest bar room establishments in throughout February:
