Titanic nights aid charity funds

SO POPULAR was a night to celebrate the maiden voyage of the doomed liner, Titanic, that a Seaview hotel staged another to mark its sinking.

The Northbank Hotel was overwhelmed by interest in its first Night of the Titanic and staged it again earlier this month.

Those attending wore period costume and actors staged a mini drama before diners enjoyed a menu that could have been enjoyed on board 100 years ago.

Titanic expert Denis Cochrane brought a beautifully crafted model of the ill-fated Titanic to the hotel and memorabilia to add to the atmosphere.

Michael Shaw-Yates, who runs the Northbank with his wife, Mary, said: "The main organiser of the evenings was our son, William. There was a great atmosphere on both nights and funds were raised for the Royal British Legion and for the RNLI too."
