Cutty Sark Studio Theatre

Our changing programme of events includes cabaret, comedy, one-man shows, lectures, musical performances and small-scale drama.

The Michael Edwards Studio Theatre is Cutty Sark's unique performing arts space, located in the ship's lower hold where precious tea and wool cargoes were stacked over a century ago. In the evening, the central section can be converted into a remarkable theatre, the only one of its kind in the world.
