Open Air Theatre in Regents Park


There is something remarkably and peculiarly English about the passion for sitting on damp seats watching open-air drama only the English have mastered the art of being truly uncomfortable while facing up to culture.”

Sheridan Morley

The Open Air Theatre in Regents Park in London is a not-to-miss summer event. The setting is spectacular and the performances top class.

Earlier in the year they put on a humorous and brilliant interpretation of Pride and Prejudice.

If you haven’t managed to get there so far this summer, there is still time to see The Sound of Music which runs until 14 September, or there’s 1 remaining film night when they are showing The Birds.

The performances normally run despite the weather, but are cancelled if the conditions makes performing too dangerous for the cast. So go prepared with blankets and waterproofs.  Take a picnic if the weather allows or buy food there.

  1. What a wonderful take on the prompt! Yes, open theatres are great to enjoy in summers – i would say plays do become more…alive for me. “Pride and Prejudice” – would have loved to see that.
    Thank you for being a part of the challenge.
