Cutty Sark Theatre

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)

Join Tom Allen, the sharply dressed, well-spoken, disparagingly camp son of working class Bromley, as he works up new material following his sold out Edinburgh and London runs. He will be joined by different comedy pals every month.

Previous comedy guests have included Suzi Ruffell, Romesh Ranganathan, Kerry Godliman and Alan Carr. News of future guests may be released closer to the date of each event, so keep an eye out!

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.

Cutty Sark Theatre

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