No doubt about it. People are loving their period dramas.
Due to popular demand, a second Victorian Holiday Tea Party and preview screening of Victoria has been added on Dec. 10 at 3:30 pm. at the KCTS 9 studios in Seattle. Cost is $60 donation per person.
Guests will be served tea, treats, and mimosas, and watch an exclusive preview of the first hour of the new drama series, Victoria, coming to MASTERPIECE in January. The event also will include a British hat contest, photo booth, door prizes, and swag bags.
Victoria premieres on MASTERPIECE on KCTS 9 and other PBS stations at 9 p.m., Jan. 15. It’s filling the slot left by another favorite, Downton Abbey, a favorite series that ran for six years.
Victoria is about the petite teen who overnight became Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland in 1837 — and soon the most powerful woman in the world. Her reign lasted 63 years — and she had nine children.
And because KCTS knows that viewers are still sad to see Downton Abbey end, they are running a marathon during Thanksgiving weekend starting at 9:30 p.m. Nov. 24.
Seating is limited for the Victorian Holiday Tea Party. Visit here for details and a link to purchase tickets.
