The Michael Edwards Studio Theatre is situated in the lower hold of Cutty Sark, where precious cargoes of tea and wool were stacked over a century ago. During the daytime, the hold contains displays of tea chests and other artefacts relating to the ship’s extraordinary history. In the evening, the central section can be converted into an eclectic performing arts space, unique in the world.
