Downton Abbey: The Exhibition Brings Popular TV Show’s World To Fans
Fans of “Downton Abbey” and the gorgeous sets and costumes seen throughout its six seasons have reason to celebrate. NBCUniversal International Studios is presenting a traveling exhibit highlighting the elegant gowns, suits and jewelry in a traveling exhibition called Downton Abbey: The Exhibition. The exhibit will make its US debut in New York City on Saturday, November 18th, 2017 at 218 W 57th Street (between Broadway and 7th Ave.)
The exhibition promises to be a “fully immersive experience,” connecting fans with their favorite sets and costumes as well as highlighting the historic events that were introduced to the series. Visitors will be transported on an incredible journey through the grand home of Downton Abbey as the exhibition peers into the world of the Crawleys and those that served them below stairs. From Mrs. Patmore’s hectic kitchen and the gossip-fueled servants’ quarters, to the family’s glamorous dining room and Lady Mary’s bedroom, fans will get the chance to walk through some of the series’ most recognizable and beloved sets. Over 50 of the show’s official costumes will be on display. Visitors will also have the ability to watch never-before-seen footage from the series.
Downton Abbey: The Exhibition will also provide a fascinating look at all aspects of the post-Edwardian period in which Carnival Films’ popular TV series is set and offer an in-depth insight into the remarkable historic events which would go on to shape the world. From World War I to the Roaring Twenties, visitors will have the chance to learn about British society, culture and fashion.
“This is a unique opportunity to step into Downton Abbey – to wander through the sumptuous rooms the family inhabit, the kitchen and servants quarters below stairs and to get right up close to many of the iconic costumes and props. The exhibition will appeal both to avid fans – well acquainted with the show – as well as those who are only just embarking on the Downton journey and want to see what the noise was all about,” said Gareth Neame, Managing Director of Carnival Films and executive producer of Downton Abbey.
