Join us on board Cutty Sark this October half term to explore storytelling as part of our Season of Identity and meet a cast of colourful characters.

See what's on below:


Our shared identity: Storytelling

24 - 26 October | 30-minute timed sessions starting at 11am, 12pm, 2pm and 3pm

Join our storyteller and musician on an interactive adventure aboard the Cutty Sark and explore the stories, superstitions and routines that brought together the crew and created a unique sense of togetherness and collective identity on the ship.

The session will bring to life the aspects of life on board the Cutty Sark that created a "sailor identity" and pride in the ship. There will be stories from China, cap-map anecdotes and interactive musical play based on the day-to-day life of sailors.
