Spectacular Summer Entertainment in Regent’s Park
In addition to the Regent’s Park Music Festival on the two Bandstands there is:
Open Air Theatre
The award-winning Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre has developed a reputation for creating world-class productions, and its outdoor setting in Regent’s Park is guaranteed to make every theatre visit a truly unique experience.
The 2021 season opens in June with Shakespeare’s iconic story of star-crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet, returns to the theatre for the first time in more than a decade and, during July Avansi the Spider followed in August/September by, Dragons and Mythical Beasts – both new shows for those aged 3+ – plays (daytime performances). Completing the season, Artistic Director Timothy Sheader reunites with Jesus Christ Superstar choreographer Drew McOnie, to create a new production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s iconic musical Carousel.
With so much on offer, why not make 2021 the year you discover theatre beneath the stars.
