This one-day conference is for anyone who has a keen interest in Titanic and its legacy, and will look at all aspects of Titanic in its historical setting from its construction to the aftermath of its sinking.

It tells us about how we lived in 1912, the great hope Titanic provided for those who sailed on her and society at large, the age of technological innovation and advancement, the class divide, and much more. Speakers include specialist staff from The National Archives, academics, published authors and Titanic experts. They will take you through the history of the ship, from its construction and launch to its fateful end, each talk providing a unique angle.
