THE timbers of the old tea clipper the Cutty Sark will be shivering again to the sound of sailors' songs this Sunday.

Greenwich and Bexley Cottage Hospice is hosting a festival of sea shanties in Cutty Sark Gardens, Greenwich, to raise cash for the hospice.

As well as live entertainment from a variety of folk groups, there will also be stalls and sideshows with all the volunteers dressed in naval uniform.

The fun begins at noon and continues until 5pm.
