After Dinner Entertainment | Downton Abbey | Edwardian | Monthly Meetings

Has your group visited Highclere Castle ? Would they like another Downton Abbey Experience ? Katharine’s talk will give them just that !

Her talk includes interesting facts about Edwardian entertaining and dining. Did you know that they enjoyed seven courses and then pudding ? The corsets must have been somewhat under strain !

Katharine takes you to an Edwardian afternoon tea wearing an outfit typical of the occasion. She also illustrates her talk by reliving some of the scenes from Downton Abbey and then singing some of the songs featured in the series. These include “Let me call you Sweetheart” and “I’ve got Rhythm”.
