Black& white image of a large group of people at White Star Line function c 1920'sThe annual BTS convention, normally held in Southampton, is an excellent opportunity to meet up with fellow Titanic enthusiasts, and features displays, lectures and sales tables on the Saturday followed by a formal Gala dinner in the evening. The Sunday includes an informative trip out to Titanic-related sites finishing off a fascinating weekend.

In a departure from the usual format, the 2016 convention will be held in Belfast as a joint venture with the Nomadic Preservation Society. Further information and booking details are here. This unique move will include the opportunity for members to visit the Thompson dock and pump house, and the Nomadic – the last of the White Star fleet.

Thanks to everyone for a very enjoyable and well received 2015 convention. See the latest pictures on our facebook page here. Images from this and many other conventions are also available on Ian Huntly’s Titanic Commemoration website.
