Winterthur to Throw Downton Abbey Theme Party

Dress in your finest vintage and mingle with the fancy people.

The cocktail party known as A Night at Downton on July 25 fêtes the ongoing Downton Abbey costume exhibit at Winterthur. This unique event will transport you to another era—a world of elbow-length gloves, beaded dresses and formal dinners. Attend in your finest vintage style (costumes are optional) and dance the night away to the Downton-era live jazz and swing band. Partake of food and drinks and enjoy a stroll through the Costumes of Downton Abbey exhibition. Arrive a little early to stroll through the garden before dusk to enjoy the warm summer night and the delicious fragrance of the garden flowers. Can you think of a more appropriate place? Don’t miss this one.

Members $75; nonmembers $90. Includes entrance to Costumes of Downton Abbey. Call 800.448.3883 or 302.888.4600. Reservations required by Thursday, July 24.
Costumes of Downton Abbey is open now through January 4, 2015, in the Winterthur Galleries.
