Downton Abbey is poised to get you feeling all festive – and you don’t even have to wait until the annual special on Christmas Day. 


Stars Laura Carmichael, Jim Carter, Allen Leech, Penelope Wilton and creator of the hit ITV period drama Julian Fellowes are taking part in an evening of seasonal readings in London to get fans in the Christmas spirit. 

The event, which will be held at the Church of St George’s in London’s Hanover Square on 25th November, is in aid of charity Tomorrow’s People, which supports unemployed people and helps them back into work. 

There will also be the opportunity to ask the cast any burning questions you might have about life on the set of the ITV period drama. Plus a glass of wine and a mince pie is included in the price of your ticket. Winner. 

Tickets cost £45 and are on sale now.


Downton Abbey continues on Sundays at 9:00pm on ITV
