To celebrate Belfast’s special relationship with the legendary ship the Titanic, a major international-scale
three week programme of events will be held in Belfast this year. Beginning with the opening of the Titanic
Belfast visitor attraction on the 31st March and running until the 2nd April, these events includes MTV
Presenting the ‘biggest party in the world’ and a Commemoration in Music and Film, which includes a starstudded
line-up of local and international performers and a special performance by the Ulster Orchestra.
The launch of the Titanic was watched by a cheering crowd of over one-hundred thousand onlookers
lining the runway in Belfast in 1911. The ‘new wonder of the world’ then set off for Southampton for the
greatest voyage of its time. Those living in Belfast for the three years during the building would have seen
the ship grow as they went about their daily lives. Today, Belfast has understandably attained a special
relationship with the Titanic.
Lord Julian Fellowes, Oscar-winning actor, screenwriter and director, has long had a passion for the story
surrounding the Titanic. Now his passion has come to our screens in a television adaption of Titanic on ITV.
