Regent's Park Open Air Theatre

13.05.16 - 10.09.16
London

This open-air theatre in London's Regent's Park (May-September) is a magical setting for a programme of theatre (usually incorporating a Shakesepeare play as well as a classic musical).

The only permanent professional outdoor theatre in Britain, it has a sharply raked auditorium, seating 1,240, giving excellent sightlines. The theatre has been located in Regent's Park since 1932, and its annual festival is attended by over 130,000 people each year. A host of famous actors have appeared here: Vivien Leigh, Jack Hawkins, Anna Neagle, Edward Fox, Jeremy Irons, Zoe Wanamaker and Ralph Fiennes, to name a few.

It's just 10 minutes from the hustle and bustle of Baker Street, but feels a world away on tranquil summer evenings. There's a lawn for picnics, or spectators can pre-book tea and cake or an evening supper. There's a bar serving Pimm's, and as the sun goes down and the fairy lights glimmer in the trees there can be few better places to enjoy the magic of theatre.
