Following the success of the first 2 seasons and a 48-minute special on Netflix, Season 3 attracted a myriad of talent to reimagine classics by The Beatles for a new generation. Yusuf/Cat Stevens recorded “Here Comes The Sun,” while rising Vermont indie pop troubadour Noah Kahan delivered a show-stopping rendition of “You Won’t See Me.” Samantha Gongol of Marian Hill takes on the classic “Let It Be,” Chloe Kohanski adds millennial sunshine to “A Day In The Life,” and Welshly Arms amplify the rock ‘n’ roll gusto of “Revolution.”

Wakely’s Beat Bugs stands out as the perfect gateway for kids to experience the canon of The Beatles.

Downton Abbey: The Exhibition

DOWNTON ABBEY: THE EXHIBITION” EXTENDS IN NEW YORK CITY THROUGH APRIL 2nd, 2018 DUE TO UNPRECEDENTED DEMAND

NBCUNIVERSAL INTERNATIONAL STUDIOS CONTINUES TO WELCOME VISITORS INSIDE THE WORLD OF GLOBAL TV PHENOMENON, “DOWNTON ABBEY”

NBCUniversal International Studios today announced the extension of Downton Abbey: The Exhibition in New York City as a result of unprecedented interest and overwhelming attendance since the November 18th opening.  The first-ever fully immersive experience set inside the world of Carnival Films’ multi award-winning global television phenomenon, Downton Abbey, the exhibition connects fans with their favorite characters, costumes, locations and historic events of the era, and showcases never-before-seen footage.

Tickets are now available through April 2nd, 2018 at the New York city venue located at 218 W 57th Street (between Broadway and 7th Ave). Tickets and gift cards are available to purchase at www.downtonexhibition.com.

The exhibition has seen a record number of fans coming through its doors and received rave reviews of four and five stars on both Yelp and TripAdvisor.  In addition, the experience attracted incredible critical acclaim from a variety of outlets including The New York Times saying it’s “…a kind of theme park for re-addiction, a cleverly immersive experience mounted with the same exacting care as the show itself. It gives “Abbey” addicts both the short-term injection they need, and the reassurance that nothing from their favorite show has ever been thrown away.” And the New York Post noted it was “Meticulously curated…” and “allows the visitor to travel back in time to the fantasy world created by Lord Julian Fellowes — an upstairs/downstairs milieu of custom, formality and grace.”

Upon entering the exhibition, visitors are transported on an incredible journey through the grand home of Downton Abbey allowing them to peer into the world of the Crawleys and those that served them below stairs.  From Mrs. Patmore’s hectic kitchen and the gossip-fuelled servants’ quarters, to the family’s glamorous dining room and Lady Mary’s bedroom, fans have the opportunity to walk through some of the series’ most recognizable and beloved sets.  Visitors will even come up-close to over 50 of the show’s official costumes worn by their favoriteactors including Michelle Dockery, Hugh Bonneville and Dame Maggie Smith.

Downton Abbey: The Exhibition provides a fascinating look at all aspects of the post-Edwardian period in which Carnival Films’ popular TV series is set and offers an in-depth insight into the remarkable historic events which would go on to shape the world. From World War I to the Roaring Twenties, visitors have the chance to learn about British society, culture and fashion.

The exhibition is open daily between 10am and 8pm, including holidays and ticket prices vary with adults starting at $30 and children from $15.  VIP packages and private hire options are also available. For further information, please visit: www.downtonexhibition.com.

Downton Abbey: The Exhibition is brought to you by NBCUniversal International Studios and Imagine Exhibitions. The exhibition is presented by Viking, the leader in river and small ship ocean cruising, also widely known for its national corporate sponsorship of PBS’ MASTERPIECE and Downton Abbey.

Downton Abbey aired for six seasons on MASTERPIECE on PBS in the US and reached more than 26 million viewers in its final season, making it the highest-rated PBS drama series of all time. A Carnival Films/MASTERPIECE co-production, the series was written and created by Julian Fellowes and executive produced by Gareth Neame, Julian Fellowes, Liz Trubridge and Nigel Marchant. The MASTERPIECE Executive Producers were Rebecca Eaton and Susanne Simpson. Downton Abbey is one of the largest UK drama exports of all time, seen in over 250 territories worldwide. With 15 wins and 69 nominations, it is the most nominated non-US show in the history of the Emmys.  Also the winner of three Golden Globes, a special BAFTA and four Screen Actors Guild Awards, the series has captured an extensive fan-base worldwide.
