Cutty Sark Sailor's Ball

The dynamic dance troupe, Medway Lindy Hoppers, are returning to Cutty Sark for a Sailor's Ball special! 
They'll be bringing with them their resident band, The Spittin' Feathers, for an evening of dance and entertainment. Boogie down and get your feet moving to a wide variety of rock-n-roll, R&B and swing music beneath Cutty Sark's gleaming copper hull.

Martin Carthy & John Kirkpatrick

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.

Tom Allen and Friends | Live comedy on Cutty Sark

'Catch him now and you'll be able to tell people how you saw him before he was famous' (The Telegraph)

The tangled net of trawler fishing

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.
