Description

WHYY requests the honor of your presence as we celebrate the premiere of the second season of Victoria. Don your best 19th-century-style attire (encouraged, though not mandatory) and join us for a festive evening at the Glen Foerd Mansion, a breathtaking historic estate located on the banks of the Delaware River. Enjoy Victoria-inspired hors d'oeuvres and sip 19th-century inspired cocktails while you view an exclusive preview of the first hour of season two.

This season finds Victoria adapting to motherhood after the birth of her first child. Meanwhile, the disaster of the Anglo-Afghan War unfolds abroad, the catastrophic Irish potato famine begins to wreak havoc and that’s only the beginning! Victoria, season two, premieres with a two-hour special on Sunday, January 14, at 9 p.m. on WHYY-TV and on WHYY Passport.

*Victorian attire not required but strongly encouraged*

Proceeds from this event support WHYY programs and services.
