About this Event

***Please Come Dressed In The Eras Attire***

Attention Downton Abbey Fans!

We have a great news for you. The Townsend Hotel is having a special event a “Downton Abbey” Inspired Tea.

Downton Abbey is a British historical period drama film, written by Julian Fellowes and directed by Michael Engler that ran from 2010 to 2015. It’s the continuing story of the Crawley family, wealthy owners of a large estate and the servants who work for them in the English countryside in the early 20th century.

While little of the plot has been given away, the story is known to take place in 1927, a couple of years after the end of the TV series, and centers on the royal visit of King George V and Queen Mary to Downton Abbey. The trailer shows the Crawley family and their army of servants preparing for the unexpected visit, which prompts Lady Mary to ask retired head butler, Carson, to return to the estate.

“Downton Abbey,” became a massive global success over its original six-season run. It won numerous awards, including three Golden Globes, 15 Primetime Emmys, and a BAFTA Special Award. It was the most nominated non-U.S. show in the history of the Emmys, with 69 nominations.

We will have a special speaker, Barbara Gulley do the presentation about the customs and dining etiquette in the time of Downton Abbey. Barbara Gulley, along with daughter, Rachel Gulley, own and operate Barb's Tea Service, a tea education business in southeastern Michigan. Barbara Gulley is also a contributing writer to Tea Time Magazine, including two articles on her visit to the "real Downton Abbey", Highclere Castle and her interview with the current countess, Lady Carnarvon. She has also written two books, "Michigan Tea Rooms" and "Twelve Etiquette Essentials: Formal Dining and Tea Time."

We will have another special guest, Rachelle Willnus who is a derby hat designer. You will be amazed by her unique and beautiful hats. Each of her pieces are couture and she never makes two pieces the same. All of her hats are hand-crafted and designed by her as she follows color trends each season.
