Anybody who enjoyed the hugely popular television series ‘Downton Abbey’, or who has seen the current movie from the series, should book the date of Sunday, 20 October as a chance to hear Jessica Fellowes in Beverley. She is the author of the companion books to the series, and niece of Julian Fellowes, creator of ‘Downton Abbey’, and the event is part of the East Riding Festival of Words.
Jessica is an international bestselling author in her own right, and this will be an indulgent afternoon at Beverley Library, from 2pm-3pm. Her companion books to ‘Downton Abbey’ made the New York Times and Sunday Times bestsellers lists.
She is a former deputy editor of ‘Country Life’ and a columnist for the ‘Mail on Sunday’ and her glittering 1920s crime series ‘The Mitford Murders’ has received international acclaim.
On her visit to Beverley, the theme will be ‘The Age of Elegance : From Downton to the Mitfords’ and tickets cost £6 each.
The event will be hosted by Ailsa Oliver, an actor and performer who also volunteers for Absolutely Cultured. She is a freelance actor and a member of the Chameleon Players.
