New ‘Point’ of interest at Titanic Belfast
A new shipyard themed hospitality space at Titanic Belfast, Hickson’s Point, is set to open in March.
Inspired by one of the first ship builders in the city, Hickson’s Point will offer an authentic 1900’s public house setting, combining traditional music, entertainment, heritage décor and locally produced food for visitors, as well as catering for a range of private and corporate events for up to 80 people.
Judith Owens, chief executive of Titanic Belfast, commented: “With increasing visitor numbers coupled with the global awareness of Northern Ireland’s incredible hospitality offering, we have invested in Hickson’s Point, an authentic setting which will enhance both our visitor experience and event offering. Not only will its shipyard fare build on one of the most popular themes in our galleries for visitors, but it will appeal to corporates, incentive travellers and tour operators for an array of events from breakfasts, drinks receptions to themed dining.”
Hickson’s Point is the latest development to Titanic Belfast’s premier event suites, alongside its two other venues, SS Nomadic, the last remaining White Star Line vessel and 6,000sqm Titanic Exhibition Centre.
Over the past six years Titanic Belfast has hosted over 2,000 business and leisure events including G8 Summit Reception, BBC Sports Personality of the Year, Giro d’Italia Big Start and conferences across an array of sectors including Routes Europe 2017, European Federation of Animal Science to the World Conference of Credit Unions.
Events in the pipeline include the recently announced BBC’s Biggest Weekend in May.
