Lords and ladies! KQED, Downton Abbey’s home in the Bay Area, is holding a Downton Abbey Super Fan Party on the evening of Wednesday, February 25. And only the most committed fans will get to go.
The details for the party will be revealed to those who get one of the 100 tickets, but trust us! This will be quite a fête. Here is what we can tell you: The party will take place at a downtown San Francisco bar (which means 21+ only). There’ll be themed drinks, light hors d’oeuvres, great entertainment and special Downton Abbey-themed prizes. And each ticket allows two entrants, so you can bring a friend. Costumes are encouraged, of course!
So how do you get a ticket? Simple: for five weeks starting January 10, we’ll be holding a draw for 20 tickets each week. You can enter your name each Saturday at a particular location around the Bay Area. The five weekly locations will be San Francisco (Jan 10), Oakland (Jan 17), San Jose (Jan 24), San Mateo (Jan 31) and Sausalito (Feb 7), and each will be inspired by a different Downton Abbey character. Earlier every week, we’ll be revealing the exact location and the time that you can come to enter your name in the drawing for one of 20 tickets -- and each ticket allows two entrants into the party.
