Manton Abbey Club

THE first ever meeting of The Manton Abbey Club – for men who like to watch Downton Abbey – was held at St Ermins Hotel in London on Monday, November 7, 2011.

It featured cast interviews with the series creator Julian Fellowes, and cast members Dan Stevens (Matthew), Allen Leech (Branson) and Iain Glen (Carlisle).

Hosting the event was the founder of the club, Absolute Radio’s Christian O Connell and it included a Q&A panel with the cast and a mastermind quiz with celebrity fans Richard Arnold and Will Carling going head to head.

The inaugural meeting was held on the same day that Downton Abbey Series 2 was available on Blu-ray™ and DVD, courtesy of Universal Playback.
