Cast of Downton Abbey support the Lord Mayor’s Appeal [X]
On Tuesday 17th July we were delighted to welcome the cast of the hit ITV show Downton Abbey to our Fathers, Daughters, Mothers & Sons Dinner at The Mansion House.
Downton Abbey portrays the lives of the Crawley family and the servants who work for them during the early 1900’s and fillming is currently underway for series three which sees the action move to the 1920’s.
Cast members present included Laura Carmichael who plays Lady Edith Crawley, Michelle Dockery who plays Lady Mary Crawley, Brendan Coyle who stars as Mr Bates, Alan Leech who plays Branson and Kevin Doyle - Joseph Molesley.
The live auction during the evening featured two opportunities for Downton fans to meet the stars - afternoon tea at a top London hotel with on-screen sisters Laura Carmichael and Michelle Dockery and a day watching filming on set and a signed cast poster. [Is this the real life? Or is this just fantasy?!]
We would like to thank the cast for their generous time and support.
Michelle & Laura also supported the Lord Mayor’s Appeal last Christmas. [X]
