Downton Abbey Tea Party to be held at the Central Library on Saturday, March 12
Birmingham area residents will get a chance to pay tribute to the popular PBS television show Downton Abbey Saturday, March 12, at the Central Library. Downton Abbey Celebration Tea Party will be held from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. in the Arrington Auditorium in the Linn-Henley Research Building.
The festive, elegant event will feature English tea and delicious treats, allow library patrons to discuss their favorite episodes and characters, and answer trivia questions based on seasons 1-6, said Leslie Deason, librarian at the Central Library. Downton Abbey is a PBS British historical drama that follows the lives of the aristocratic Crawley family and their servants. The show recently concluded a six-year run.
“We will celebrate all seasons of Downton Abbey and say farewell to our favorite British television drama,” Deason said. “Downton Abbey first began in the United States in 2011. The show includes interesting characters, beautiful costumes, and the gorgeous set of Highclere Castle. Outstanding cinematography made the period drama simply beautiful to watch.”
“Costumes are encouraged but not required. Please bring your favorite tea cup and saucer,” Deason said.
Prizes will be awarded to the trivia contest winners, best costume, and most unique tea cup. All ages are welcome. A few limited spots are available for this free tea party. To register, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "Downton Abbey Tea." For more information, call Leslie Deason at (205) 226-3680.
