Ephrata library hosting trip to Downton Abbey exhibit
Costume aficionados, fashionistas, historians and Downton Abbey fans alike are all invited to join the Ephrata Public Library for a field trip to visit the “Costumes of Downton Abbey” exhibit on display at the Winterthur Museum, Garden and Library in Wilmington, Del. Sept. 13.
The exhibit boasts 40 historically inspired costumes from the award-winning British television series, as well as supplemental materials designed to provide a better understanding of what daily life was like in the first half of the 20th century.
A joint production of Carnival Films and Masterpiece, Downton Abbey takes place in the aristocratic household of the fictional Earl and Countess of Grantham during the 1900s. The Winterthur Museum states that the Winterthur estate is the real-life American equivalent of the fictional Downton Abbey. Founded by H.F. du Pont and his father, Henry Algernon du Pont, Winterthur was designed in the spirit of 18th-and 19th-century European country houses.
The trip also includes a tram tour of the Winterthur garden, afternoon tea at Special Teas in Chadds Ford and some free time for shopping.
Tickets for the trip cost $70 per person and include coach transportation, all admission fees and afternoon tea. Tickets can be purchased at the Ephrata Public Library, located at 550 South Reading Road, Ephrata, during normal business hours.
For more information, visit the library’s website at ephratapubliclibrary.org or contact the library at 738-9291.
