According to an old Irish tradition, February 29th is the perfect chance for a woman to take matters into her own hands and propose marriage to her partner. Are you, or do you know a lady, who wants to get married and would like to take advantage of the leap year tradition and propose marriage to her partner in Chester on February 29th? We can help!
The city’s business improvement district, CH1ChesterBID, is offering to play Cupid and give one lucky lady up to £750* to create a dream Leap Day marriage proposal!
The money can be spent on luxury accommodation for two in the city; a romantic meal in one of Chester city centre’s array of restaurants; the perfect ring from one of the city’s jewellers or simply helping to find the perfect backdrop.
February is the month of romance and we want to celebrate that Chester is the original city of love. From the half-timbered buildings to the historic city walls; the elegant Eastgate Clock to the ancient Cathedral, everywhere you turn there’s romantic history and heritage and we intend to showcase that Chester is the perfect backdrop for a marriage proposal.
Chester’s enchanting cobbled streets are the perfect setting for new love stories to be written and unforgettable moments to be cherished, so if you’re planning to get down on one knee this February 29th, let CH1ChesterBID make it a moment to remember!
To enter this once-in-a-lifetime competition, bearing in mind that a Leap Year day will not come around again for another 1461 days after this year, just send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org telling us your idea for your proposal and why we should pick you!
The closing date for entries is Sunday 21st February 2016 at 6pm in order to choose a winner and for us to get in touch to help make your idea a reality. Remember: It must take place in Chester city centre! We will pick a winner on 22nd February and contact the lucky lady the same day.
