TITANIC EXHIBITION GETS EXTENTION

The Titanic: The Artefact Exhibition at London’s O2 has proved so popular that it has been extended until the end of July.

The exhibition includes over 300 of the thousands of objects rescued by salvage experts from the legendary ships wreckage including a pocket watch, a hairbrush, bottles of perfume and official White Star Line chinaware.

So far the exhibition has attracted around 22 million visitors. Vice president of education for Premier Exhibitions, Cheryl Muré, said, 'What you see here are just some of the 5,500 artefacts from the seven expeditions we've made since 1987... The everyday objects are really compelling. When you're looking at dishes and a china service, it makes you start thinking about the chefs on board, the 33,000 meals they had to prepare during the crossing, who might have eaten off the plate. Then there's, whose hairbrush was that? Whose pipe?'

The exhibition will now run until 31st July 2011.
