Downton Abbey

A Dinner Party at Downton Abbey

The Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center, in partnership with The Mount, cordially invites you to attend a lecture by food historian Francine Segan titled “Downton Abbey and Gilded Age Holiday Entertaining” on Sunday (December 15) at 3pm, followed by a 4pm screening of “Somewhere in Time.” NOTE: This is a schedule change for Segan’s previously announced lecture on Saturday, December 14 at 6:30pm.

“Downton Abbey and Gilded Age Holiday Entertaining” will be an amusing lecture about the fascinating time period when high society was at its peak. It was a time of calling cards, horse-drawn coaches, high tea, cotillions, lawn parties, formal dinners – a time when even picnics were served on fine china.
