LIFE AT AN EDWARDIAN MANOR INSPIRED BY DOWNTON ABBEY
The critically acclaimed TV series Downton Abbey has renewed popular interest in the Edwardian era. It was a time of great disparity between the haves and the have-nots. The rich expected their every whim to be indulged and their daily needs to be fulfilled by the lower class of domestic servants. This “Golden Age” perched on a shaky foundation as the winds of change brought a time of greater social mobility within the rigid British class system. Learn about this fascinating time while enjoying light refreshments. Though you don’t have to be a Downton Abbey fan to enjoy this program, devoted fans may take more notice of certain details in the show.
