Britain's great maritime attraction, the Cutty Sark, is to become a black-tie corporate venue, with sponsoring company logos beamed on to its floodlit masts, under ambitious conservation plans.

A marketing drive entitled "Cutty Sark at Night" will see the fire-damaged Victorian tea clipper, in dry dock at Greenwich, host events ranging from champagne dinners and wedding banquets to product launches and "bespoke" tea parties once the current £35m Lottery-funded project to encase its lower hull in a "glass bubble" is completed in 2009.
