Still mourning the end of Downton Abbey? Then get on board WILL’s one-day bus trip to Dressing Downton: Changing Fashion for Changing Times at the Driehaus Museum in Chicago on Sunday, April 24. This exhibit features more than 35 costumes from Downton Abbey, surrounded by the lavish interiors of the Driehaus Museum.

You’ll also get to experience a traditional English tea in the garden-inspired Murphy Auditorium next door. Tea includes seasonal scones and cake breads, tea sandwiches and a variety of sweets, all in a Carson-approved style.

To register, call 800-898-1065 or go to willpledge.org. Cost is $150 per person, which includes the bus trip, admission to the museum and a guided tour of the Downton costumes, plus the English tea.
