Downton Abbey: Behind the Curtain with Jessica Fellowes


Join WTVP and Downton Abbey insider Jessica Fellowes for a trip to our very own English pub on Saturday, Sept. 28. We're turning the studio into our own "Grantham Arms" for the night creating a pub-like atmosphere where "upstairs" and "downstairs" can come together for a casual evening of fun, laughter and dishing on Downton. Play darts, have a few pints and then enjoy our whiskey tasting and cigar tent!

As the niece of Downton Abbey's creator, Lord Julian Fellowes, as well as an author and journalist, Jessica is the natural choice to tell us everything we're dying to know about the inner workings of this beloved series. She has had incredible access to the cast, castle and production. As our special guest, she will share her insights on what happens in front of the camera and behind the scenes, and chat about her personal experiences on set.
