This Emmy® and Golden Globe® award-winning hit drama returns for a fifth season of intimately interlaced stories centered on an English country estate — an entertaining formula that has made Downton Abbey the highest-rated drama in PBS history. The acclaimed ensemble cast is joined by guest stars Harriet Walter as Lady Shackleton and Peter Egan as Lord Flintshire, together with new characters played by Richard E. Grant, Anna Chancellor and Rade Sherbedgia.
Light hors d’oeuvres, drinks and dancing plus a special performance by Shay Estes and Mark Lowrey. 1920s Downton Abbey-inspired costumes are strongly encouraged, and a free, advance screening of the Downton Abbey Season 5 premiere on MASTERPIECE. This is an exclusive event with limited space and will likely sell out!
