Titanic talk at White House

ABBEY Historical Society kicks off its new winter season in the White House at 7.30pm on Wednesday evening, September 12.

Guest speaker for the opening night will be author and Titanic tour operator Susie Millar.

Susie’s great grandfather, Thomas, worked and travelled on the ill-fated liner. She will be talking about the Belfast built ship and her recent trip on the MV Balmoral for its Titanic memorial cruise to mark 100 years since the ship’s sinking.

Abbey Historical Society chairwoman Vikki Dundas said: “Once again we have another excellent programme of historical talks planned for the months ahead.

“Our first guest speaker, Susie Millar is sure to make the season’s opening night an event not to be missed.”
