Downton Abbey is an international television sensation created by Oscar winning writer Julian Fellowes. For the past 4 years, the program, (which airs on Sunday nights at 9:00 p.m. on Pioneer Public TV) has attracted a growing base of fans who tune in to watch the aristocratic Crawley family navigate a rapidly changing world in England during the 1920s.
The show has inspired a nationwide interest in Edwardian era clothing and fashion, with top designers like Ralph Lauren offering gowns and tweed jackets based on the hit TV series. Audience members are encouraged to dress up for an informal "fashion show" that will be held as part of the evening festivities, which will include refreshments, door prizes and a Downton Abbey trivia quiz.
“We are excited to partner with Pioneer in sponsoring this Downton Abbey Season 5 Sneak Preview,” said Beth Hampton, Activities Director at Luther Haven. “We have several residents who follow the series and we invite those from the community who love the show to join us,” she added.
For those who can’t make the premiere on December 18th, the Downton Abbey program will be broadcast on Sunday January 4th at 9 p.m. over the air on Pioneer Public TV or on Charter Channel 6 in Montevideo.
The event is free but seating is limited. Tickets to the event are available at Luther Haven, Minnwest Bank, Rekow Management and Kibble Equipment. For more information, contact Pioneer’s Community Relations Representative Nicole Zempel at 320-289-2622. or visit www.pioneer.org
