It is a unique experience to sit in a gorgeous park and yet see such wonderful theatre productions. Have been going since I was a small child and always love the shows. Surroundings only add to the productions as long as it is good weather. We always try to take a blanket and jumper just in case...

Gorgeous outdoor theatre in the heart of Regents Park. Seating is surprisingly comfortable for an outdoor place. Their shows run rain or shine, so bring a rain jacket or poncho if it looks like it may rain. An extra jacket or blanket are great ideas as well, it does get chilly in the evenings once the sun sets. Stage setup... More

Have been here numerous times and have never been disappointed. A magical place to see a show. Always top quality productions. Highly recommended. Good range of food and drinks available. Of course its weather dependent and it may get a little cool later in the evening. It's England. What do you expect.

Can not rate this place highly enough. The best venue in London to see a production. Check the weather beforehand.

I never knew this venue existed. My friend booked tickets for Jesus Christ Superstar and I did wonder how it was going to work. I was absolutely blown away by the performance, the seats were wonderful, the atmosphere was fantastic. The theatre is has a feel like it is hidden away in the park. We enjoyed a lovely picnic before... More

This little theatre is a must to visit during the summer. It is very atmospheric and in some ways quite magical. The design of the auditorium and the rake of the seats means that wherever you sit you get a great and uninterrupted view with good acoustics. I have seen many productions here over the years and they have all... More

Verb nicely done and the seating was fine. It was an exceptionally hot September afternoon so we were lucky to find our seats were in the shade. There is a nice picnic area around the the theatre so if you get there early enough to stake your claim to a table and chairs ( a few with sun umbrella) -... More

This is a great, atmospheric little theatre in a very pretty setting within the inner circle of Regents Park. The seating is tiered, so you are assured of a good view wherever you sit, and being a relatively small space set in an amphitheater style, you're also never too far from the action. The space is well run with good... More
