Founded in 2016, The Regent’s Park Music Festival has grown from one concert on the main park bandstand to a diverse celebration of the arts in the restorative nature of one of London’s most beautiful parks.
In 2023 the festival hosted nearly 50 free concerts, two operas, a Shakespeare play and a Magical Musical Evening of classical music favourites, using two bandstands, the Nannies’ Lawn and the St. John’s Lodge Secret Garden. Over 20,000 attended one or more performances and over 1200 musicians, professional and volunteer, shared their talents.
Sponsors, individual donors, and donations made at free concerts fund the festival, allowing the all-volunteer administration to pass all the funding to the performers, except minor administrative costs.
Our vision is to enlarge this budding newcomer on the London arts scene to offer more music and theatre to more people at more times and in more locations throughout Regent’s Park, and to keep the performances available for no or low cost. Combining the arts with time spent in London’s haven of greenery in the centre of our great city is a gift we would like to share.
