Regent's Park Open Air Theatre
Tucked away in a secluded corner of Regent’s Park lies the Open Air Theatre. The verdant setting lends itself perfectly to the summery playlist of fantastic theatre, music and comedy on offer this year. Whilst being one of the largest auditoriums in London, the steeply raked seating manages to make it feel like one of the most intimate. The twinkling lights in the hedgerow complete the summer evening scene of food hampers, bottles of bubbly and hearty theatre goers. But if picnicking is an alfresco step too far for you, there is a delightful Garden Café packed with gorgeous food. The Open Air Theatre is not just about the atmosphere, it is about remarkable storytelling too. Built upon a core of outstanding dramatic credentials, they present bold and dynamic productions and last summer’s season was no exception, with Lord of the Flies, The Beggars Opera, Pericles and Crazy for you all gracing the stage.
Now in its 80th season, the award-winning Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre is a London landmark – a firm fixture of summer in the city, providing a cultural hub in the beautiful surroundings of a Royal Park.
Its steeply raked auditorium is one of the largest in London with 1,240 seats, yet those who attend say it is one of the most intimate.
Each night an incomparable atmosphere is created by the buzz of people enjoying their theatregoing in every sense: people setting up hampers on the picnic lawn, filling their glasses with wine or drinking Pimms in the bar as the fairy lights twinkle in the trees.
Yet the Open Air Theatre is not just about an amazing atmosphere, it is about remarkable storytelling too. Built upon a core of outstanding dramatic credentials, we aim to present bold and dynamic productions that stimulate the senses. Weather and climate add a thrilling contribution to our work, making the relationship between performer, text and audience a truly unique event at every performance.
