The Duluth Public Library is hosting a series of programs inspired by the show “Downton Abbey” during the month of November. “Downton Abbey” is a fictional account of the aristocratic Crawley family and its servants.
The library will be showing the first three episodes of Season 3 of the popular show in the main library’s Green Room at 520 W. Superior Street beginning at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 2. The rest of Season 3 will be shown on the following three Saturdays, Nov. 9, 16 and 23.
Following the screening of the first three episodes, the public is invited to tea from 3 to 4 p.m., also in the Green Room. Teavana staff will be on hand to serve tea to guests, and to discuss varieties of tea, how to make tea and how to properly drink tea. Finger food and additional refreshments will be available. Guests are welcome to bring their favorite teacups and dress in period attire. Reservations are not necessary.
“Secrets of Highclere Castle,” a film first shown on PBS, will be shown in the library’s Green Room on Thursday, November 7 at 6 p.m. The fictional Downton Abbey is really England’s 1,300-year-old Highclere Castle. See how Highclere inhabitants lived, from the aristocrats to the army of servants toiling “below stairs.” Find out from the current inhabitants, Lord and Lady Carnarvon, what life in a castle is like today.
Antique costume collector Evelyn Gray will be showing clothing from 1912 through the 1920s at a fashion show on Saturday, Nov. 16, at 2 p.m. in the Green Room.
All Duluth Public Library programs are free and open to the public.
