THIS EVENT IS FULL! WE ARE NO LONGER TAKING A WAIT LIST.

The critically acclaimed TV Series, Downton Abbey has renewed popular interest in the Edwardian era when King Edward VII reigned in the United Kingdom.
  It was a time of great disparity between the "haves" and the "have-nots."  Wealthy aristocrats owned huge manor houses, and reveled in luxury, leisure, and extravagant entertaining.  The rich expected their every whim to be indulged and all their daily needs to be fulfilled by the lower class of domestic servants.  This “Golden Age,” which was a reaction to the Victorian era (and actually began in the late 19th century), perched on a shaky foundation just as the winds of change brought a time of greater social mobility within the rigid British class system.  Come learn about this fascinating time and the people who lived in it while indulging in some tea and tasty British treats! 

Though you don't have to be a Downton Abbey fan to enjoy this program, devoted fans may take more notice of certain details in the show after attending.

Presented by Food and Tea Historian, Judith Krall-Russo.  Limited availability!  Ages 16 and up only, please. Guests should bring a tea cup and saucer.  For more information or to register, contact Alaina at 732-727-0212 ex. 25 or email her at alainad@lmxac.org.  Registration also available online.
