Back In Time

In an evening inspired by the international hit PBS series “Masterpiece Theatre Downton Abbey,” WNIN Tri-State Public Media invites guests to go back in time to the era of the Titanic and the onset of the Roaring 20s.

“Downton Abbey,” the most popular drama in the history of PBS, depicts the lives of the aristocratic Crawley family and their servants in the post-Edwardian era.

Guests will enjoy fine hors d’oeuvres, desserts, spirited cocktails, and lively music. The WNIN Annual Gala will evoke the opulent atmosphere of your favorite English manor, Downton. Period dress from the Edwardian Era during World War I and the Roaring 20s is encouraged. Black tie is optional.
The event, which is a benefit for WNIN, will be at 6 p.m. on Jan. 25 at the Evansville Country Club, 3810 Stringtown Road.

Tickets are $100 and may be purchased by calling the WNIN office at 812-423-2973, ext. 136, or by emailing events@wnin.org.

The Annual Gala’s theme also serves as a promotion for the upcoming weekly live half hour call-in or text-in WNIN show “Abbey Chat,” which will immediately follow each new episode of “Downton Abbey” aired locally at 8 p.m. Sunday evenings on channel 9.1 on WNIN PBS.

The fourth season of “Downton Abbey” premieres at 8 p.m. on Jan. 5, followed by the premiere of “Abbey Chat” at 10 p.m. Additional episodes will air each Sunday following the current episodes of the TV show. Both shows will also repeat Thursdays starting at 7:30 p.m.
Audience members also can interact through Facebook or Twitter using the hashtag WNINAC.

“Abbey Chat” features energetic and entertaining hosts and “Downton Abbey” fans Megan Mortis, Rachel Nadeau, Jack Schriber, and Matt Rowe, and includes discussions, games, behind-the-scenes video clips of “Downton Abbey,” and person-on-the-street interviews.

“America loves ‘Downton Abbey,’” says Brad Kimmel, WNIN President and CEO. “We are excited to be providing this new local content and encourage feedback from members of our community.”
