Titanic-themed charity weekend in aid of the RNLI

A TITANIC-themed charity fundraiser is taking place next month to mark the centenary of the ship’s ill-fated maiden voyage.

Ore Community Centre, in Old London Road, will be decked out in the form of the cruise ship on Friday, April 13 and Saturday, April 14.

Visitors will be treated to two bars, including a cocktail bar, a three-table casino, string quartet in the ballroom, a Parisian cafe, Irish band in steerage (third-class deck), a promenade deck and light buffet.

On the Friday from 8pm there will be a murder mystery evening with prizes given to the best sleuth and on the Saturday, again from 8pm, a ball is being held.

People can come in fancy dress based on what passengers wore in 1912 on the Titanic.

There will be prizes for the best costume.

The two-day event is in aid of the RNLI in Hastings.
