We are amazed at the customer service from this theatre. To start with we needed to change the dates of our tickets due to a late planned wedding. They happily obliged. Then due to a sudden illness we were unable to attend; they sold our tickets & refunded us. Everyone we talked to was very helpful and considerate. Other establishments... More

We took some friends to see Seven Brides last night and they were bowled over. It is a fabulous revival and director Rachel Kavanaugh brings something totally fresh to it. We went for the covered dining before the show - the lovely staff and really good modern menu set us up perfectly for the evening ( and you get to... More

I just saw "Seven Brides for Seven Bothers" and thoroughly loved it, but shows come and go here so it is quite likely that if you read this, a new show may be playing as the season here usually includes four productions. I've seen at least ten shows here in the last 5 years and I love coming every time.... More

We were lucky with the weather.... Perfectly dry. Thankfully. Great cast and superb production of seven brides for seven brothers. We saw a sound of music a couple of years ago, which had to be stopped a few times due to rain but didn't detract from a great performance and a lovely setting, but this show took it up a... More

Although it was wet, we were assured on arrival that the performance was not cancelled and would start in 10 minutes. We bought drinks to take in and were encouraged to pre-order our interval drinks which we did. A delayed start was then announced and then that the show was cancelled (no refunds but can try and re-book). We requested... More

This is without any doubt the very best show that I have ever seen on stage and screen. Accepting the challenges of a live show, what we saw was flawless. Cast superb and so talented, orchestra could not be bettered and the setting perfect and so clever in design. For sheer energy, enthusiasm and brilliant talent I consider this production... More

In the heart of Regents Park is the Open Air theatre which comes alive in the summer time. Most shows are of Shakespeare with some other quirky shows featuring occasionally. Get your tickets quick as they sell out fast. A great experience on a warm summers day, otherwise do wrap up as it can get chilly.

Blessed with a beautiful summers day the Open Air Theatre was a good place to be in June. The play "The Seagull " was a serious drama very well acted and added up to a very enjoyable day out.

We found the theatre by chance, walking across Regents Park and had a look at what was on. Seven Brides for Seven Brothers was due to start in about half an hour. We were able to get return tickets and went for it. The theatre is fantastic, with a very nice, fully equipped café and bar. The amphitheatre is very... More

As a fairly regular and frequent member of the audience - I have always found the experience magical. The production standards are exceptional and the sets allow for more variety and novelty in the open air. I was a little disappointed that a wood and steel stage has been constructed as the performance on the grassy knolls was part of... More
