Downton Abbey Fox Hunt & Luncheon
A traditional English "mock" fox hunt in the style of Downton Abbey comes to Lincoln's Chase Farm Park complete with all the pageantry of properly-outfitted riders. The majestic scene of horses galloping across the meadows while specially-trained hounds seek out the scent of a fox provides the demonstration of a hunt.
Prior to the hunt, a brief lecture about the history and process of a fox hunt will be given under the tent. Following the hunt, a bagpiper will announce that the lavish picnic luncheon buffet is ready, complimented by the Edwardian-outfitted volunteers from the historic house museum, Hearthside, next door to the park. The elegant luncheon will be followed by a photo session with each guest receiving a keepsake photograph with the horses and hounds.
Limited seating is available for this fundraiser for the nonprofit volunteer organization, Friends of Hearthside, who runs the museum. Tickets are $45 and may be purchased by Sept. 11 by contacting Hearthside at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 726-0597. The event runs from 10:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
Chase Farm Park is located at 671 Great Road, Lincoln, RI.
