Open-Air Theatre

The Open-Air Theatre in Regent’s Park will offer a variety of theatrical, musical and comic spectacles from mid-May until mid-September.

The season changes and the streets of London are filled with vitality, enthusiasm and color, but also with a host of activities and theatrical representations for all tastes. Taking advantage of the arrival of Spring and the huge number of tourists who tend to visit the capital at this time of the year, and just as the bars and restaurants begin serving outside, the theatre too moves to the street, where the perfect stage can be found within the squares and parks of the city.

This is exactly what takes place in Regent’s Park, which is host to a series of shows from mid-May to mid-September. Named ‘The Open-Air Theatre’, this particular stage offers theatrical and musical productions and shows for the whole family. It’s the only professional open-air theatre in the whole of the United Kingdom and holds one of the biggest auditoriums in the city with 1,240 stalls.

According to figures released by the organisation, every year more than 140,000 people assist with the productions which take place from May until September. This year, the theatre will be showing: Lord of The Flies, from 19th May to 18th June; The Beggar’s Opera, from 23rd June to 23rd July; Pericles, from 2nd July to 23rd July and Crazy For You, from 28th of July to 10th September.

There will also be musical acts from Kate Rusby (17th July), I am Kloot (14th August), Clare Teal and the BBC Big Band (21st August) and The Imagined Village (4th September).

Those who enjoy a good laugh will be able to choose between Jimmy Carr – Laughter Therapy (5th June), Jeremy Hardy (12th June) and Comedy Store Players (10th July). Finally, for all the romantics, the film Romeo and Juliet will be projected on 11th September.
