“What is a Week end?” …Dowager Countess of Grantham, Downton Abbey®
Celebrate the week end and step into the world of Downton Abbey on Friday, July 25, 7:00–10:00 pm, for Winterthur’s Costumes of Downton Abbey cocktail party in the Galleries Reception Atrium and patio.
This unique cocktail party will transport you to another era—a world of elbow-length gloves, beaded dresses, and formal dinners. Come in your finest vintage style (costumes are optional) and dance the night away to the Downton-era live jazz & swing band Songbird and the Tweeters. This seven-piece swing and jazz band delivers a rhythmic groove that will keep your feet moving and your spirits high!
Partake in scrumptious food and drinks and enjoy a stroll through the Costumes of Downton Abbey exhibition. Arrive a little early and take a stroll through the garden before dusk to enjoy the warm summer night and the delicious fragrance of the garden flowers. We look forward to celebrating with you!
