An award-winning local museum is appealing for any Havering residents with personal links to the Titanic to come forward and share their stories at a new exhibition.
Starting in April 2018, the Titanic: Honour and Glory exhibition will be docking at the Havering Museum in Romford High Street for five months.
The national exhibition tells the story of the Titanic, but will be focussing on stories from local people with a connection to the infamous ship.
Ellen Owen, the museum’s director, is searching for local people who may have a friend or family link to the vessel, and any Titanic artefacts that might still be residing in the borough.
On Saturday, September 30, September a special Titanic Reminiscence will take place at the Museum at 1.30pm.
The event, which will cost £3 to attend, will tell the story of the Titanic and allow local people to contribute their stories, which will be captured and become part of the exhibition.
