On Tuesday evening we headed down to London’s Richmond Theatre where BAFTA were hosting a special tribute award for Downton Abbey.
Staged in front of a live audience with cast and crew in attendance and presented by Jonathan Ross, Downton was honoured for its worldwide impact and award winning run.
All of the current cast attended the ceremony including, Dame Maggie Smith, Hugh Bonneville, Jim Carter and Penelope Wilton, along with a host of previous cast members including cousin Matthew himself, Dan Stevens. Julie Walters CBE presented the special BAFTA to the cast on stage.
Following the ceremony guests, cast and crew headed back to an after party held in a beautiful marquee on Richmond Green. On arrival a selection of Chase cocktails flowed, including Kiss Chase, Chase Marmalade Collins and a firm favourite of the evening, the GB G&T!
