Christmas comes early with this announcement for all of our "Downton Abbey" fans! On Thursday, Dec. 19, AETN is pleased to host a Roaring '20s Cocktail Reception, inspired by Downton Abbey, followed by a screening of the first hour of "Downton Abbey: Season 4." Celebrate the elegance of the era and your favorite period costume drama with us at Wildwood Park for the Arts, but hurry and reserve your space soon - space is limited! We'll tell you how, and dish details, after the jump.
Come and join us! We'll celebrate the elegance of "Downton Abbey" at Wildwood Park for the Arts
(2919 Denney Road, Little Rock) with cocktails, dancing and more, beginning at 6:30 p.m. As per last year's event, costumes are encouraged but not required. Attendees who wear their period-inspired attire, however, will be entered into the costume contest!
Other great fun for the evening includes a Jazz Age photo booth, music and door prizes, along with drinks and hors d'oeuvres. Tickets to the reception
are $50 per person; space is limited, so be sure to reserve yours as soon as possible! This fundraising event supports the AETN Foundation

Limited seating to the free screening of "Downton Abbey: Season 4"
will open at 7:15 p.m., and seating is available only with RSVP. The screening itself will begin at 7:30 p.m. It's a great prelude to the season premiere on "Masterpiece Theater,"
