To mark the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the famous passenger ship the Titanic, the Flax Gallery at Mossley Mill is hosting the national touring exhibition Titanic Honour and Glory until Saturday 27 October.

This inspiring exhibition features many rare and previously unseen artefacts from the liner’s passengers and crew.

The exhibition is on tour through the Mid-Antrim Museums Service Partnership and includes items from the largest private collection of Titanic artefacts in Scotland.

Items on show include beautiful china dinner plates, which served the first meals aboard the Titanic, a letter written on board and a lifeboat nameplate. One of the most moving items in the exhibition is a Steiff teddy bear which belonged to William Young Moyes, senior sixth engineer on board the Titanic. Visitors will also be able to see rare examples of in memoriam tributes following the aftermath of the sinking including Titanic relief fund cheques which were given to support the families of those who were lost.
