History Cafe: Downton Abbey in Seattle
Downton Abbey Season 4 is almost here! Your presence is graciously welcomed as we explore the history and culture of early 20th-century Seattle and learn how Seattleites intersected with the same issues as the characters of Downton Abbey. Join speakers Junius Rochester, Paula Becker and Clara Berg for a step back in time. Dress in attire suitable for a soiree at Highclere Castle, or in your usual 21st-century attire, and enjoy a sneak peek of scenes from Season 4 of Downton Abbey.
About History Cafe
Join us on the 3rd Thursday of the month at the MOHAI Cafe at the Museum of History & Industry's new location in Lake Union Park for lively a discussion about history. Each cafe features a different topic, and invites history enthusiasts to come together and share what you know. Grab a cup of coffee - or glass of wine -- and enjoy learning about the past!
Please note: History Cafe is a free program, but if you wish to visit the MOHAI galleries, you must pay museum admission (galleries close at 8 pm).
This event series is brought to you by MOHAI, KCTS 9, The Seattle Public Library, and HistoryLink.org.
RSVPs: Seating at History Cafe is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Your RSVP gives us an idea of how many people are coming, but does not guarantee you a seat, so we encourage you to arrive at least 15 minutes early. If an event is full on Meetup, you may still come.
Parking: After 6 pm, numerous lots near Lake Union Park offer free parking. Look for parking lots off Fairview Ave, Westlake Ave, or Valley Street, or take the South Lake Union Streetcar from downtown Seattle.
