The Regent’s Park Music Festival will bring alive the Bandstand with music every Sunday afternoon and Bank Holiday Monday from 19 June to 18 September. In addition again this year we are going to have Saturday Concerts from the Broadwalk Bandstand across from the Park’s Broadwalk Cafe starting on 18 June.
These free concerts were very popular in 2019 and 2021, drawing audiences of up to 900 people for each performance of the Regent’s Park Music Festival concerts. This year the Regent’s Park Music Festival will continue with performances lasting all afternoon from 12.30 to 17.30 on Sundays and Bank Holiday Monday and 14:00 to 16:00 on Saturdays. Programmes will be varied and include local Concert Bands, Jazz Big Bands, small groups, and Choirs – entertainment perfect for your summer picnics and outings. Enjoy music from the Park’s bandstand or Broadwalk Bandstand across from the Broadwalk Cafe from the comfort of a deck chair (available to hire) or on a blanket with your picnic.
Also Regent’s Park will be home to other entertainment activities over the Summer of 2022,i.e. The Open Air Theatre will put on performances.
The Lord Chamberlain’s Men – with a history stretching back to William Shakespeare himself – will be performing for one night only this summer the sparkling comedy, As You Like It.
Close by to Regent’s Park will be the St Marylebone Festival at the St Marylebone Parish Church from 17 to 22 July 2022
Regent’s Park Music Festival organiser Mark Elliott said, “it is a joy to see the pleasure these concerts give to residents and visitors who hear the Holmes Bandstand and Broadwalk Bandstand come to life again after several years of occasional events. We are very grateful to the Park Management and to our many sponsors who enable us to bring music to the Park every summer weekend.”
