If you love Downton Abbey, join us as we experience life with our favorite Edwardian family and their servants
as we take you through the day, both "upstairs" and "down stairs". Two very different worlds separate the elite
and those who wait on them! Follow the Lord and Lady and their beautiful daughters through the social rigors of
the rich and learn how the butler and housekeeper maintain the daily routines and rules of servant life.
The Tea Ladies weave this fascinating story with a display of several stunning fashions of the era!
This event is free to the public with limited seating. Registration is required.
Please call 630-837-2855 to register.
