Downton Abbey is coming back! Well, sort of. The show isn’t returning but an exhibition based on the beloved series opens in New York next week for a limited engagement. Then the exhibit makes its way across the US, maybe even to your town (I’ve not seen any tour dates but fingers crossed it will come to North Carolina).
Here’s a description based on Masterpiece promotion:
The first-ever fully immersive Downton Abbey experience is coming stateside! Downton Abbey: The Exhibition will make its US debut in New York City on Saturday Nov. 18, before traveling throughout the US. Tickets are now available to purchase at www.downtonexhibition.com.
The Exhibition will connect fans with their favorite characters, costumes, locations and historic events of the era, as well as showcase never-before-seen footage.
From Mrs. Patmore’s hectic kitchen and the gossip-fuelled servants’ quarters, to the family’s glamorous dining room and Lady Mary’s bedroom, fans will get the chance to walk through some of the series’ most recognizable and beloved sets. Visitors will even come up-close to over 50 of the show’s official costumes worn by their favorite actors including Michelle Dockery, Hugh Bonneville, and Maggie Smith!
Sounds great, doesn’t it? If you’re in the Big Apple, check it out. Otherwise, stay tuned for further details. I’ll post all tour dates as soon as I know them!
