Event to feature tea, screening of ‘Downton Abbey’ finale

Feb. 17, 2014 @ 10:26 PM

ASHLAND — Boyd County Public Library is hosting an adults-only formal tea and screening the season finale of the popular show “Downton Abbey” on Saturday, Feb. 22.

Fans of the show are invited to come enjoy scones, crumpets and a pot of Darjeeling before watching the conclusion of Season 4 (a day before it airs on television). Costumes are encouraged, but not required.

The tea starts at 1 p.m. The Main Branch is located at 1740 Central Ave. Seating is limited, so call 606-329-0518, ext. 1140 to reserve a spot.

“Downton Abbey” is a British period television drama that airs in the U.S. as part of the Masterpiece Classics anthology on PBS. The series is set in the fictional Yorkshire country estate of Downton Abbey, and depicts the lives of the aristocratic Crawley family and their servants in the post-Edwardian era. By the third season, it had become one of the most widely watched television drama shows in the world.

BCPL is also having a contest to “Find the Downton Characters” at the Main Branch this week (Feb. 17-22). Laminated versions of Lord and Lady Grantham, Mary, Edith, Rose, Mr. Carson, Mrs. Hughes, Mrs. Patmore, The Dowager Countess, and Anna and Mr. Bates will be hidden somewhere in the building. Whoever finds one, and returns it to the front desk, will be entered to win the book “The Chronicles of Downton Abbey: A New Era.”
