WHYY Presents Tour and Tea: A Visit to Downton Abbey

Saturday, January 27

Community Film Downtown

Call the Lady Mary or Lady Edith in your life to relive our favorite historical drama one last time. Downton Abbey: The Exhibition, in New York City on a limited engagement, recreates the Grantham house, including costumes and props from the original show run. Join us on a chartered minibus to New York City, where we will take a tour of the exhibition with Patrick Stoner and spend the afternoon sipping tea in Manhattan. Tickets are limited, so register soon to guarantee your spot. As the Dowager always says, “Seems a pity to miss such a good pudding.”

Proceeds from this event support WHYY programs and services.
