The new season of the hit series Downton Abbey will air nationally on PBS’ Masterpiece on January 5, 2014. But fans of the series who pledge support for WTIU will get a sneak preview—along with an invitation to attend an afternoon English tea in the grand style of the aristocratic Crawleys.
The IU Cinema will screen episode one of Downton Abbey Season 4 on Sunday, December 15 at 12:30 p.m. Following the screening, a formal tea will take place at 2 p.m. in the Grand Hall of the Neal-Marshall Black Culture Center. Formal dress is encouraged, but not required.
For a $120 WTIU membership contribution, attendees will receive:
- VIP Seating for two at the screening
- Two tickets to the WTIU Tea—which includes food, a short presentation on clothing and material of the era, and a speaker on tea etiquette and traditions
- Copy of Behind the Scenes at Downton Abbey—the official Season 4 book, complete with never-before-seen photos giving fans insights into the production
Current WTIU members are eligible for two (2) general admission seats to the screening only, while supplies last. To requests tickets contact our Membership Department at 812-855-6114 or 800-662-3311.
