Stars of the UK’s most beloved drama Downton Abbey were at the opening of Mather & Co’s newest project today. Downton Abbey – The Exhibition, which opened to the public on 17th June, welcomed some of the shows most popular stars to Singapore including Laura Carmichael who played Lady Edith and Jim Carter and who played the formidable Mr Carson. The cast were also joined by key members of the crew including its creator Julian Fellowes.
Phyllis Logan who played Mrs Hughes admitted it had left her quite nostalgic when talking to the Daily Mail about the exhibition;
‘I didn’t have a notion of what the exhibition will look like, but I got quite emotional when I finally saw the servants’ hall. It felt like it had its own life. There was real heart to it.’
The fully immersive exhibition welcomes fans to Downton Abbey where they can explore some of its most recognizable rooms from the authentically recreated downstairs sets to the opulent rooms of upstairs including the immersive recreation of the library and drawing room which come to life before the visitors eyes. Even the dining room has been recreated in all its splendor with the an animated version of the Van Dyke painting taking pride of place. With over 50 costumes and some never before seen props from the show visitors can immerse themselves in the world of Downton Abbey once again.
