Violet Crawley, who “hates to get news second-hand,” is in good company. Nobody likes to receive news when it’s too late to do anything about it. Well, we at NPT want to make sure that you know about an upcoming event that’s sure to be a smashing success!
Though the last episode of Downton Abbey Season 4 didn’t leave us in shambles like previous seasons (alas for season 3!) we wait in eager expectation for when we get to reunite with the Crawley family and friends and see how the plot thickens.
Have you ever wanted to attend one of those fancy parties that the Crawley family hosts? Or enjoy live period music with fellow Downton fans? What about see the premiere of the first episode of Downton Abbey Season 5 on MASTERPIECE before it airs?
Here’s your chance to immerse yourself in a not-so-long-ago time at NPT’s 1920s Soirée and Screening inspired by Downton Abbey on MASTERPIECE at the Franklin Theatre on Thursday, December 11.
The 1920s Soirée will include hors d’oeuvres from Bacon & Caviar Gourmet Catering, drinks courtesy of VPT Ventures/Ajax Turner, live music and fun photo opportunities. Guests are encouraged to come dressed in Roaring 20s attire or as their favorite Downton Abbey character.
Following the Soirée, Downton Abbey enthusiasts will attend the only Middle Tennessee screening of the first episode of Downton Abbey Season 5 on MASTERPIECE, before it airs on NPT on January 4, 2015.
Soirée starts at 7:00 PM with the public screening at 8:00 PM. Following the screening, guests are invited to go across the street for an after-party with music and champagne at event sponsor Walton’s Antique and Estate Jewelry. Get your tickets soon, because they’re going fast!
Known for her blunt honesty and expressive behavior, Violet Crawley has been known to pronounce, “At my age, one must ration one’s excitement!”
If, like Violet, you also believe you do not have time or energy for this event, peruse photos of last year’s event and see for yourself that this is an opportunity you will not want to miss!
