Talk: At Home at Highclere- The Real Downton Abbey

April 13, 2017 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Our lecturer, the 8th Countess of Carnarvon, lives at Highclere Castle, otherwise known to millions of fans as Downton Abbey.
Lady Carnarvon has published two historical bestsellers focusing on the social life of the house around the First and Second World Wars, exploring what Highclere was really like during this time. Her third book develops the theme of entertainment, with stunning photographs and archive gems. Highclere remained a very glamorous house welcoming guests from  statesmen, to royalty, and celebrities from the stage and screen.

Join Lady Carnarvon for an inside view of Highclere and a book signing.

Drinks will be available from 6.30pm.

This lecture is presented with the kind support of Wendy Claridge.

£7, pre-booking essential
