If you’re suffering from Downton Abbey withdrawal here’s a fix.

If you’re suffering from Downton Abbey withdrawal here’s a fix. Oak Bay resident and retired economics professor Frank Wilson, will speak about living in a landed Yorkshire estate village for 37 years.

The popular TV series Downton Abbey is an accurate portrayal about estate life, both upstairs and down, Wilson says. Using slides to illustrate his free one-hour talk Wilson will reiterate life in the late 1960s with the last Earl of Wortley, his family and even the scullery maid.

Wilson will speak at Cook Street Activity Centre, 1-380 Cook St., April 27, 11 a.m. and at Monterey recreation centre, 1442 Monterey Ave., April 30, 1 p.m.
