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. winterthur.org
