December 19, 2013

WETA held an advance screening of the first episode of Downton Abbey Series 4 for several hundred excited fans at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park, with giveaways, refreshments and a Highclere Castle photo booth.

Our event also featured a “baby shower” in honor of the birth of Lady Mary’s son in season 3. Attendees were encouraged to bring child-friendly items to be donated to two local charities – The National Center for Children and Families and HOPE in Northern Virginia. We were blown away by the generosity of our WETA members and the Greater Washington community. Thank you!
