While many of you will be sad to see “Downton Abbey” come to a close after an incredible six-season run, we encourage you to not mourn the series’ end, rather, we’d like you to celebrate its legacy with us and VisionTV’s premiere broadcast of the series’ final season starting Wednesday, June 29 at 9pm ET/6pm PT.
On Saturday, June 25 at Toronto’s William Ashley (55 Bloor St. W., in the Manulife Centre), we will be co-hosting Downton Abbey Day, an occasion in which fans of the show are invited to swing by and soak up everything Downton. This free and elegant event is open to everyone, especially those who are not shy about delivering Dowager Countess quips at a moment’s notice.
FAREWELL DOWNTON FLY AWAY CONTEST
Along with our premiere broadcast of Downton Abbey’s powerful and poignant final season starting Wed., June 29 at 9pm ET, we’ve partnered with our friends at Trafalgar Tours and VisitBritain to offer you the chance to win an amazing, 8-day trip for 2 to London, Devon and Cornwall. Just watch Downton Abbey each Wednesday at 9pm ET, answer a question about each episode and enter to win at Canada.com. The contest launches June 29th, so get ready!
During Downton Abbey Day, fans will learn how to dine Downton style, find out what it takes to host an amazing afternoon tea and scope out eye-popping period fashions, courtesy of vintage clothing experts Pearls & Pockets and Dear Hazel May. If you have deep “Downton Abbey” knowledge, also be sure to participate in the trivia challenge, as plenty of great prizes will be up for grabs.
Speaking of special prizes, attendees will be able to enter a draw to win a Chinese Boquest Rust Herend tea set ($900 value) or a Blue Italian dinnerware set by Spode ($750 value), as seen on “Downton Abbey.” You do not want to miss out on this opportunity!
