Bonny Cummins friendship with Millvina Dean has inspired the paintings and some of them are co signed by Millvina. The journey of Titanic is brought to life under the stunning glass Atrium evocative of Titanic’s glass and mahogany structures and grandeur. Paintings will be displayed on easels and hung from the balconies and majestic staircases. Each Saturday, 12th May & 19th May & 26th May from 12:00pm to 16:00pm, as part of the experience refreshments will be served as part of the exhibition as Millvina loved to spend her afternoons with friends over tea.
