Downton Abbey is heading to the Atlanta International Gift and Home Furnishings Market next year with one very special guest.

Actress Lesley Nicol – who plays Mrs. Patmore in the popular period drama – will be joining the team to help celebrate the success of the lifestyle brand and its roster of products at the show.

Nicol will be gracing the showrooms of Downton Abbey licensees, including Heritage Lace, 1928 Jewellery, Enesco, Kurt S Adler, Langley Empire Candle, North American Bear Co., River of Goods and Roman, on hand to meet licensees’ teams and retail buyers.

“We are so excited that Lesley Nicol – Mrs Patmore herself – will be joining us at the Atlanta Gift Show,” said Knockout Licensing co-president, Carole Postal.

“She’s such a lovable, central character on the show that her presence is certain to bring the love and excitement for Downton Abbey among the gift and home trade to a whole new level.”

Knockout Licensing is the agency responsible for managing the Downton Abbey licensing programme across the US.

The historical drama series will premiere its fifth season on PBS Masterpiece on January 4, 2015, and has already been renewed for a sixth season.
