An Evening at Downton Abbey

An Evening at Downton Abbey


A musical treat for fans of the hit television series — who must not miss this year’s double edition of Radio Times, which contains a festive Downton feature.

Cast members Hugh Bonneville, Laura Carmichael and Penelope Wilton join host Margherita Taylor to enjoy music from the series and famous classical pieces composed during the first three decades of the 19th century.

Writer Julian Fellowes provides an intimate insider’s view on what goes on behind the scenes.


Margherita Taylor presents a celebration of the critically acclaimed costume drama, playing music from the programme, as well as from the era in which it is set. She also talks to Downton's creator Julian Fellowes, composer John Lunn, and cast members Hugh Bonneville (Earl of Grantham), Laura Carmichael (Lady Edith) and Penelope Wilton (Mrs Crawley).
