Carson the butler from Downton Abbey will be enjoying tea rather than serving it when he visits the Hydro Hotel on March 27.

Carson – or, rather, the actor Jim Carter who plays the butler in the popular ITV series – is making a return visit to the seafront hotel to give a talk about his stage and screen career and then join the group for a scrumptious tea.

Tickets for the talk and tea – which cost £27.50 each – and further details are available from Angela Hughes, call 07712 194433.
