On 23 June 2012 we marked the centenary of the maiden voyage of RMS Titanic with a maiden voyage of our own. This was the first time we had used Fitzroy Town Hall, and the venue was a great success.

After extensive planning and preparation we set sail on our dancing adventure.

Here is a partial record of the passenger list on that memorable voyage.

Every voyage has its paperwork...

... and every themed ball has its entry decorations

Christine, Keith, Denise, Heather, Declan, Pam, Coral, John, Ray, Jenny, Ross & Heather
(Declan wasn't actually visible during the 1988 display - how old are you now Declan?)

It’s nice to have an age mixture at our balls

These photos show the crowd of 118. The atmosphere was absolutely magnificent. Until we hit that wretched iceberg.

Pandemonium prevailed as a giant polar bear appeared

The bear carried away (saved?) a petrified songstress
