  The Guinness world record for the largest coffee party in a single venue involved 8,162 participants and was set by Krüger GmbH & Co. KG (Germany) at the Jugendpark in Cologne, Germany.

  Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the Largest Simultaneous Coffee Party, set by Macmillan Cancer Relief (UK), which broke their record of the previous year for the largest coffee morning with a total number of 576,157 people attending over 26,000 meetings simultaneously throughout the UK.


  It is 100 years since the Royal Mail Steamer Titanic struck an iceberg and sank on her maiden voyage on April 15th 1912 with the loss of over 1500 lives.

  Henry Aldridge and Son latest auction like its predecessors this year broke a number of world record prices.

  Leading the way was a first class lunch menu owned by Titanic Passengers Richard and Stanley May. The May brothers were travelling to Cork for a week's fishing holiday and used the Titanic as their method to cross the Irish Sea.

  This particular meal was the first held onboard Titanic on her fateful voyage, the cream of Edwardian Society would have enjoyed the feast on offer that included Fresh Lobsters, Hodge Podge and Roast Beef.

  The menu represented a true snapshot into the opulent lives that the first class passengers onboard lived. It sold to a private collector for £64000.

  A second menu relating to Titanic was offered in the same sale, this was a very rare VIP example given to those lucky few who experienced a lunch held at the Grand Central Hotel, Belfast to celebrate her launch on May 31st 1911.
