Join us for a very special evening featuring the music, fashion, and flavors that make the era portrayed in Masterpiece’s Downton Abbey so appealing and memorable. Listen to the New England Brass Band (pictured at left) bring the golden age of British music to life with timeless classics by Gustav Holst and other English composers. Taste some of the dishes served to the British aristocracy, and feast your eyes on the fashion worn in Britain and the United States in the early 20th century. See authentic and modern interpretations of dress from the time period depicted in Downton Abbey shared by fashion historians from Massachusetts College of Art and Design and Lasell College. And hear insights on the culture and cuisine of the Edwardian Era offered by Boston University Gastronomy Professor Dr. Kyri Claflin.
