CCPVB and Cummer Beaches to hold Downton Abbey-themed exhibit and art tour at Lightner Museum


The Cultural Center at Ponte Vedra Beach and Cummer Beaches are partnering to organize a Downton Abbey-themed exhibit and art tour.

To be held Oct. 12 at the Lightner museum in downtown St. Augustine, the exhibit will feature nearly 40 period costumes and jewelry from the hit series paired with Otto Lightner’s collection of turn-of-the-century fine art and furniture.

Ticket holders will also enjoy a luncheon at the historic Old City House Inn and Restaurant that will be attended by St. Augustine Mayor Nancy Shaver and special guest speaker Dr. Susan Parker, who will discuss some of St. Augustine’s greatest secrets. After lunch, attendees will tour the Ancient City in a private Old Town trolley and then participate in a spirits tasting at the Ice Plant.

Individual ticket price is $190 for members of the Cultural Center and/or Cummer Beaches. Non-member price is $200. Tickets include round trip transportation, all admissions, the private exhibition tour, trolley ride and luncheon. $100 of the ticket price is tax-deductible. No refunds can be made after July 31.

Because of the high demand for reservations, the Lightner Museum is requesting reservations be confirmed by July 31. Please reserve tickets by calling (904) 280-0614 or by visiting the Cultural Center’s website at
