Cutty Sark Teen Tours

This year, Teen Tours has gone digital. Sign up to listen to a short talk from one of our participants who have spent the last six weeks investigating untold stories and alternative narratives of Cutty Sark's past, present and future. 

Log in to one or more of the four 20-minute tours developed by a team of young people from south London. We will be covering topics from mental health to ship design and construction, listening to annecdotes from sailors' experiences on board.

The webinar will start at 7pm and there will be an opportunity to ask questions after the initial discussion.
