Downton Abbey star to visit Toy Fair

Published on: 19th January 2012

Fans of Downton Abbey, which just scooped the Golden Globe Award for best Television mini series, are in for a treat at Toy Fair this year as the show’s own feisty cook Mrs Patmore is guest of honour of Gibsons Games.

Lesley Nicol, who plays Mrs Patmore, will be signing copies of Gibsons’ new Downton Abbey jigsaw puzzles and helping launch the range.

Child psychologist, Dr Amanda Gummer, who helped with the design of Gibsons’ award-winning My World range of educational and fun puzzles and games for pre-school and Key Stage 1 children, will also be making an appearance.

Gibsons Games will be at Stand H110
