Stunning! Singing, dancing, acting, scenery, everything about this venue works. I love it! Plenty of shade to sit in before the performance as hottest day of the year so far. Advice: wear a sunhat and take a brolly just to shelter under before the performance starts and during the interval.

My partner and I took her mother to an afternoon matinee here. It is a very short walk from the Tube station to the edge of Regents Park and then a short walk through the park, passing ponds and flower beds, along a wide, paved path to the theatre. We had Afternoon Tea before the performance -- food was okay;... More

I thoroughly enjoyed going to this play at this outside theatre - the atmosphere was enchanting with the tables, bars and outlets set around. Service at the bar was pleasant and quick. Overall with an excellent play to watch and a great setting, what more can you ask.

My wife and I decided to make this our show of our trip and boy did we make the right choice. We saw "Hobsons choice" and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. We arrived early which was just as well as the picnic tables around the BBQ area are very popular. I think that if we were to return which... More

We took our family to see "Hobson's Choice" at this theatre. I was very nervous about the weather. We got a few sprinkles of rain before the show began. The actors were absolutely superb. It was a great update of the original play. We had seats that were fairly close, but the theatre is small enough that I think every... More

The actors were great - able to ad lib quite well when there were unexpected "additions" to the set. It's a beautiful venue, right there in the park, and all the seats had a good view of the stage. I advise that you wear layers - it gets a touch chilly.

I have often come here with friends. Start your evening with a picnic in the park then enjoy wonderful theatre - an excellent night out. This time we saw "Hobson's Choice" which closes soon. If you're reading this in early July 2014 get a ticket now! For me it typifies the best plays for the theatre here - light, very... More

in the Summer Rgent's park Open Air Theatre put on amazing productions. They do cancel if weather really bad but they try not to. Always top entertainment. This year I went to see Hobson'sChoice. as always, an amazing production. Food is good at at the venue or why not bring a picnic to eat in the park before the show.

Sitting outside in the sun and watching a fantastic preformance of Twelfth Night is highly recommended.

Yesterday four of us (adults) went to Regents Park for a 'fun' production of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. Although a sort of modern presentation, it mostly retains the original text and songs (with a few fun additions!) The cast were energetic, versatile and gave great vocal and amazing musical performances on an variety of instruments as well as singing well and... More
