EastSide Visitor Centre is hosting ‘Shipyard Stories’, a week of fascinating talks from local experts celebrating the lives of the men and women from east belfast who helped shape our city’s rich maritime heritage.

Thomas Andrews Junior (1873-1912) was the chief naval architect of RMS Titanic and was one of the many lost on the ship's ill-fated maiden voyage.

Born in Comber, County Down, to an illustrious family, Thomas studied at night-classes and worked his way up in the shipyard, earning the respect of all.

Author of «A Chronicle of Comber, Town of Thomas Andrews Shipbuilder,» local historian and Blue Badge tourist guide, Laura Spence, will deliver a talk on the Andrews family, giving some background into the life and times of 'Tommie' as the family knew him.
