I go here every year to see a show as the venue is so unusual and if the weather is kind, it's one of the best places to spend a summer evening. The shows are always varied so there's something for everyone. The seats are good view wise, but I would always take a cushion for extra comfort and also... More

We loved the presentation of To Kill a Mockingbird this summer. The excellent cast's deliberate movement and focus on the action was a key to inviting the audience into total absorption in the action of this evergreen story. As a visitor to London I particularly enjoyed the whole Regent's Park experience. Highly recommended. Book early and look out for the... More

I visited the Open Air Theatre in Regents Park for the first time as had a super time. The facilities are very good, loos clean and next to the amphitheatre, a very good bar too with a decent range of wines and snacks available. The bar area was very busy but staff worked fast and queues went down quickly. I... More

We have been to the Open Air Theatre several times, most recently to see Porgy & Bess which we thoroughly enjoyed. As we are reasonably local, we tend to leave it to the last minute to book tickets & only book if there is a good chance of dry weather. This isn't an option for everyone (& it does restrict...

I took my first trip to the Open Air Theatre to see To Kill a Mockingbird yesterday. First off, I fell in love with the setting. What an incredible venue! Nestled among the trees in the centre of Regents Park you can enjoy the birds flying over head and the trees rustling as you take in some really high quality... More

On a warm dry Summer evening, with the fairy lights and a good production it an be very special here, BUT when its cold and wet its a different story. Of course the weather affects outdoor venues in this country, but unlike the Globe who never cancel, here they wait until the last minute to make a decision on if... More

Would definitely recommend watching this play. The actors used the staging well and even though we were seated in the top right hand corner we could see everything clearly. It was a wonderful performance in a great setting.

Very well done show, captured the story excellently with limited resources. All the actors were great and some were required to do multiple roles which added to the performance. The open air theatre itself is excellent and can hold a large number of people. Not too expensive for what it is and great beverages and ice cream avaliable.

Amazing setting and fabulous production. Had a great evening eating in the park and then watching To Kill a Mockingbird. My only criticism would be a better selection of sweets/treats to buy. They has run out so wasn't much choice and no chocolate!!!
