Immerse yourself in everything Downton Abbey with a special companion lecture series and luncheon that would even impress the Dowager Countess of Grantham.
Jessica Fellowes, Author and Speaker on everything Downton Abbey, will be hosting two distinctive lectures with a VIP High-Tea luncheon intermission in Flagler College’s historic Flagler Room and Solarium.
Fellowes’s morning lecture, Downton Abbey: ‘At Home With the Family’, will transport listeners to the beginning of the 20th century and talk about life as an “upstairs” member of the Downton family and how it relates to the Lightner Museum’s very own history of the guests at the time of the Alcazar Hotel during the Gilded Age. This lecture will be held from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. in Flagler College’s Flagler Room.
An exclusive luncheon hosted by Fellowes will be held in Flagler College’s Solarium overlooking the City of St. Augustine and the former Alcazar Hotel. The luncheon will be held from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. “Tea time” attire is encouraged.
In the afternoon lecture titled: Downton Abbey: ‘Behind the Green Baize Doors, Fellowes will talk about life as a “downstairs” member of the Downton family and how it relates to the Lightner Museum’s very own history of staff at the time of the Alcazar Hotel at the turn of the 20th century. This lecture will be held from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. in Flagler College’s Flagler Room.
