Come rain or shine (hopefully shine), the Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre is a fantastic place to spend a summer’s day. Open between May and September, it showcases a range of four different productions annually. From comedy and classics through to Shakespeare, the theatre provides something to suit all theatre-lovers.
This superb venue is an enjoyable and inspiring place to introduce kids to the theatre, not least due to the determination of the actors, who will endeavour to play through all forms of bad weather (as we’re accustomed to in Britain). However, be sure to check the forecast before you come as brollies, ponchos and wellies may be necessary!
In winter, when the theatre is closed you can still watch the plays as many of the theatre’s past productions become available through the Beyond the Park programme. You can read more about this here.
