It's a hundred and forty-five years ago since The Cutty Sark made her maiden voyage. This fine cargo vessel became the lifeblood of Britain, turning us into a nation of tea drinkers, as she imported those essential leaves from China.

Now a museum, the lower hold now contains displays of tea chests and other artefacts relating to the ship's extraordinary history. At least most of the time. Earlier this year, something new arrived at The Cutty Sark - but it only appears after hours. During the evening, all the museum props are moved out and the lower hold is converted into a Studio Theatre, especially designed for entertaining visitors with cabaret, comedy, one-man shows, lectures, musical performances, and small-scale dramas. The autumn series runs between 17th - 10th November. All performances begin at 7.45pm and cost between 15 - 20. Shows are proving very popular and a number have already sold out, so if you are interested, you should book quickly.
