Don your finest 1912 fashion for a 'Titanic' night of fun

It's time to find your finest evening gloves, waistcoats and bowler hats to set sail for trip back in time.

Camden Civic Centre will play host to an opulent evening of dinner and dancing in commemoration of the Titanic on June 22.

The civic centre will be transformed into an opulent 1912 dinner party complete with live music and a six-course meal.

Organiser Michael Booth has spent a lifetime gathering knowledge and artifacts about the famous ship, which sank in the Atlantic in the early hours of April 15, 1912.

He said the event would pay homage to the 'ship of dreams' and provide attendees with a great night out.

"We encourage people to dress up and that really adds to the atmosphere," he said.

"We even give you a boarding pass when you arrive and at the end of the night you can look your name up and see if you survived the sinking."

Mr Booth often dresses himself as the doomed Captain Smith for special events and occasions.

The Harrington Park resident said the dinner event would be a sight to behold.

"We will have a red carpet, canapes and wine on arrival," he said.

"The  menu will be similar to what was served in first-class on the Titanic.

"There will be two bottles of wine supplied on the tables as well.

"We will have a violinist playing somber songs at the beginning of the night as people arrive but later on they will play more upbeat songs for people to get up and have a dance."

Irish dancers will also perform on the night.

There will be awards for best dressed man, woman and couple.

Mr Booth said more than 100 people attended the last Titanic Dinner.

"It's a really fun event, unlike anything else you would see locally," he said.

"It's a fantastic way to spend a Saturday night.

"You'll be able to enjoy a great night out and an unforgettable experience."

The Titanic Dinner will be held from 6pm on June 22 at the Camden Civic Centre.

Tickets are $95 per person. To book or for more information, call Michael Booth on 0420 540 612 or Kath Armstrong on 0439 494 330 by April 20.
