The community museum in the Beverley Guildhall is today putting on a display about the Titanic almost 100 years after the event, which will include stories about people with links to the local area, and will be on show until 25 May.
The Guildhall (next to the main post office in Register Square) is open every Friday between 10am and 4pm with free admission.
This month sees the centenary of the sinking of the Titanic, which struck an iceberg on the night of 14 April 1912 and sank within two and a half hours, resulting in the loss of over 1500 lives.
At the time this tragedy shocked the world, and 100 years on we are still fascinated by this particular story.
“Personally I have found researching this display to be very moving. Some of the first-hand accounts written shortly afterwards bring the events of that night vividly to life and go some way toward explaining our continued fascination with Titanic.”
