The Open Air Theatre is a permanent venue completely surrounded by parkland. It is located inside Queen Mary's Gardens, part of the inner-circle of Regents Park.
The Open Air Theatre was opened in 1932 and recently rebuilt in 1999. The theatre is uncovered except for a multi-level auditorium which has a bar stretching it's entire length. The bar serves complete meals starting 1½ hours before performances and is open until midnight for refreshments.
Performances are held from late May until early in September. If bad weather forces a performance to not be completed, tickets can be exchanged for an upcoming performance.

How to get to Regent's Park Open Air Theatre by Tube
From Baker Street Station exit onto Baker Street and go to your right (north) until you can see Regent's Park ahead and to your right. Double back slightly to the pedestrian crossing and cross over to the park. Make your way to the foot bridge just inside the park, walk across and follow the path to your left on the other side keeping alongside the trees. When you get to the Inner Circle cross the road and continue along the path on far side. At the 'T' (just past the Park Cafe), go left and follow that path to the theatre entrance.
