Titanic exhibition at Colne Muni recreates scenes from ill-fated ship
RECREATED scenes from the Titanic are the centrepiece of a prestigious new exhibition in the hometown of heroic bandmaster Wallace Hartley.
Colne Muni is the venue for the ‘Titanic 100’ spectacular, pulled together by White Star Memories, until July 6.
Facsimiles of the liner’s radio room, a-la carte restaurant and first and third class cabins will take pride of place, alongside a reconstruction of the wreck.
And a number of exhibits from the Titanic’s sister ship, The Olympic, will demonstrate life on the vessel as it made its doomed maiden voyage 100 years ago.
Visitors can also look out of ‘port-holes’ on to an imaginary seabed.
Nigel Hampson, curator of the Titanic in Lancashire Museum, said it was ‘very fitting’ that the exhibition was being staged in Colne.
