About This Activity

Description

Join us to hear Lynn Rymarz present Lady Almina and the real Downton Abbey, by The Countess of Carnarvon. In this book review, learn about the lost legacy of Highclere Castle in Britain and hear about the real historical characters who lived there, including Almina Carnarvon, her husband, the 5th Earl of Carnarvon and her family. Learn about the people who worked there, the transformation of the Castle when it became a hospital for wounded soldiers during the first World War, and how Almina became a nurse to take care of them. Find out about the gala parties she hosted and attended, and how her husband helped to discover the tomb of Tutankhamun. Brunch will be served before the performance.


Fee includes brunch and presentation.
