#DoTheDownton – and win afternoon tea for your office

Downton Abbey Season 3 is over, but happily the Christmas special is just around the corner (and out on DVD & Blu-ray 26th Dec).

To celebrate, we’re offering you the chance to win a slap up afternoon tea the Dowager herself would be proud of for your entire office – all you have to do is “Do the Downton”.

If you haven't yet heard of the social media craze, it basically involves drinking with your ‘pinkie’ (little finger) extended, snapping it and posting it on twitter/Facebook. It took twitter by storm during Series 3 – and it’s your one way ticket to a delicious office treat.

ABOVE: Steps and Noel Clarke doing the Downton, and an explanatory infographic.

How do you enter? On Monday 17 December when we launch the competition, simply tweet a picture of you and/or your office mates as they #DoTheDownton followed by their city location and the name of the company – e.g. #DoTheDownton #London #Stylist. The winning tweets/office will be awarded with a delivery of afternoon tea – which will include sandwiches with their crusts off, scones with jam and cream cheese, and a variety of tea blends.

Please note: There must be at least 5-10 tweets from each office in order to qualify for the prize and lunch can be arranged for up to 15 people. This competition is open to all UK residents.

The competition will run from Monday 17 December at 9am to 5pm GMT, so get those pinky fingers and tea cups ready!
