Downton Abbey Tea Fundraisers Are Huge Hit With Fans

Few events are more appropriately suited to the splendor of the Belvidere Mansion than the Downton Abbey Fundraiser Teas. Guests come from states around to enjoy a special hot tea and plate of scones, sweets and savouries. Friends love to dress in period clothes, participate in the costume parade and contest, and  meeting the “cast” of the British costume drama, now on its fifth season on PBS. Members of the Historical Society are in character to greet everyone who comes, helping them find their seat and answering questions about the Belvidere and its history, as well as discuss favorite moments from the show. Guest speakers and games round out an afternoon of fun. The Downton Abbey Teas are so popular, that they sell out quickly!
