The Real Downton Abbey – A Talk About Life In Service On Monday In Shaftesbury

If you enjoyed TV’s Downton Abbey, you will get an insight into real life, ‘below stairs’ and in-service at a talk at Shaftesbury Town Hall on Monday.

Daphne Atkinson will share the stories she collected from her mother. Daphne’s mum was employed in a stately home in Suffolk. In our interview, Daphne explains why some people get emotional when they listen to her talk.

The session has been arranged by the Gold Hill Probus Club. The event starts at 10.30am Monday and costs £2.
