THIS year’s New Mossley Festival concluded on Friday, July 27 with a special ‘Titanic Day’.
People of all ages enjoyed a range of activities at New Mossley Elim Church before buses ferried more than 100 people to Titanic Belfast - the multi-million pound visitor attraction which opened earlier this year.
“We got really good numbers,” explained Jack Shaw, Chairman of New Mossley Community Group. “More than 140 people went down to the Titanic centre and they really enjoyed the day. The young people enjoyed the games and magic show at the party in the Elim Church as well and we’ve had a really good response.”
The ‘All Our Yesterdays’ festival kicked off on July 4 with an American Independence Day tea dance, and continued three days later with the ‘100 Years On’ event - a War Years Remembered exhibition and a re-enactment of the signing of the Ulster Covenant, including a special visit to the estate by Lord Carson himself (actor Peter Brady). The arrival of a gang of Hell’s Angels bikers during the festival also proved a big hit with people in the estate.
