Famed for his role as the butler Mr Carson, the force behind the scenes at Downton Abbey, the actor Jim Carter returned to his acting roots in Harrogate, opening the newly renovated Soothill Hall auditorium at Ashville College on Sunday.

Mr Carter, a former head boy during his final year at the college, cut the ribbon before taking to the stage for ‘an afternoon with Jim Carter’ in the auditorium, which has just undergone a £2.25m facelift.

He also spoke with some of the college’s drama students in the studio that has now been named after him in honour of his acting career.
