Cutty Sark Theatre
John Tams and Barry Coope are a unique collaboration, described by the Borderline Club as "rich, powerful and full".
They will be joining us in the Sammy Ofer Gallery of Cutty Sark for one night only! These two leading interpreters of English folk traditions – folk guitarist/singer Carthy and squeezebox virtuoso/singer Kirkpatrick – are long-time collaborators in a variety of seminal musical projects: from John’s iconic 1976 Morris tunes album Plain Capers through Steeleye Span to Brass Monkey.
This St Patrick's Day, we will be celebrating with a traditional Irish ceili beneath the hull of Cutty Sark.
Be regaled with Tales of St Patrick and Irish Folklore this Paddy's Day, in the unique setting of Cutty Sark. Enjoy St Patrick's themed food and drink, then dance the rest of the night away with London's very own Ceili Max!
Tony Law coming is to Cutty Sark to host a nautical themed comedy night, and he's bringing guests!
See award winning Tony develop his new act, while guests Thom Tuck, John-Luke Roberts and Russell Hicks will work ship-related and historical jokes into their routines inside the Lower Hold of the Ship.
The wearing of naval, nautical and historical attire is encouraged!

When you don’t live by the sea, it’s easy to think that the issues faced by fishermen don’t affect you.
To see the bigger picture, we caught up with Smoking Apples Theatre, whose new show 'In Our Hands' explores life from the perspective of a Cornish trawlerman as he struggles with crippling legislation, quota distribution and big corporations which leave him with rising debts. Their award-winning performance, coming soon to the Cutty Sark Theatre, shows us how the fisherman's story affects us all.
