A glamorous one-off Gala cinema evening at Rheged Centre, Penrith, which will also raise money for Carlisle Cathedral’s exciting Fratry Project.
Guests will have a red-carpet drinks reception with canapes and welcome drinks on arrival in the main hall, where you can enjoy live swing music from Shades of Jazz, before the film.
About Downton Abbey: Based on the much-loved TV show of the same name and featuring many original cast members, such as Maggie Smith, Michelle Dockery, and Hugh Bonneville, follow the dramatic lives of the aristocratic Crawley family in this historical feature, not to be missed.
This Gala cinema evening with Downton Abbey will help Carlisle Cathedral to bring its historic Fratry building back to life. One of the most significant heritage buildings in the North West will finally be open and accessible to all – enabling the Cathedral to offer an exciting new programme of teaching and learning, arts, culture and other events. Standing alongside the newly refurbished Fratry will also be a stunning new café with spectacular views of the Cathedral. Find out more at
