A 'Downton Abbey' Concert at Highclere Castle Is Happening This Summer
Actor Jim Carter, in costume as Mr.Carson, will host the evening of music.
Are you a Downton Abbey superfan? Well, then, you may want to clear your schedule for a trip to England this June.
This summer, a concert inspired by the sounds of the television show is taking place at Highclere Castle — which serves as a backdrop for the television series and the upcoming movie — and will be narrated by Jim Carter, a.k.a. Mr.Carson in the period drama. The concert will be performed by the Chamber Orchestra of London on Saturday, June 22nd. You can buy ticket for the open-air concert on LiveNation here. Currently, general tickets are available from around $88, platinum tickets from around $242, and VIP packages from around $516, which include a meet and greet opportunity with Jim Carter and Downton Abbey's composer, John Lunn, backstage tour, a signed copy of Lady Carnarvon’s latest book, and a designated check-in and on-site event staff.
Located on bucolic grounds in Newbury, England, Highclere Castle also offers special tours and events (like afternoon tea!) throughout the year.
