leave a comment »

Do you have a connection to the Titanic? Perhaps you or someone you know had a relative on board the tragic liner. Perhaps you’ve a connection to the ship’s construction, or to James Cameron’s famous film. If so, our friends at the Tall Ship Glenlee would love to hear from you.

The Clyde Maritime Trust, owner of the Glenlee, is having a Titanic Reunion Lunch at 12noon on Monday 24th January, and would love anyone with a personal connection to the Titanic to contact them.

The reunion lunch is part of an events programme to celebrate The Tall Ship’s current exhibition Titanic: Honour & Glory.  The exhibition is the largest private collection of Titanic objects in Scotland and features a diverse range of stunning and very rare pieces from the Titanic and her sister ships, plus magnificent props and costumes from James Cameron’s 1997 movie Titanic, including a beautiful necklace worn by Kate Winslet in the film.

The Titanic exhibition is on at The Tall Ship until 27th February, open daily 10am-4pm, Admission £3 (concs £2).

The reunion lunch on 24th January will be followed at 2pm with a special talk by Titanic exhibition manager Sean Szmalc, who will unravel the gripping story of Titanic and her sister ships.  The talk is free for those attending the reunion and £5 admission otherwise. To attend the reunion, please contact David Cowan at The Tall Ship with your Titanic story on 0141 222 2513, or email him.
