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.

Rated 4.7 out of 5Regent's Park Open Air Theatre Star Rating

5 Star Rating A fantastic venue with seats offering a good vantage point to an expansive stage. La Cage aux Folles was my flamboyant chosen show, adapted from the 1978 original. Long bar and amenities too, catering to the interval rush of visitors. Lovely ambiance with the array of ash, cedars and birch trees. A real gem in an iconic spot.

5 Star Rating La cage aux folles. Excellent production, great cast, set and costumes! Only 1 week left, a must see. This open air theatre is one of the best kept secrets in London. A must see!! Bravo to the cast 👏🏻

5 Star Rating What a fantastic night at the theatre! The facility is lovely, there are ample restrooms and food/drink options, and there really aren’t bad seats in the house! It was simply magical. I opted for the covered dining which is a great option as you get a starter and entree then at intermission you get dessert and coffee/tea. It was about 35£.

5 Star Rating Went to watch La Cage aux Folles - what an experience! The entire ambience and setting outside the theatre has been done so well. Food is pretty good, and service is quick so you won’t miss your show. The theatre itself is magnificent, and very unique. Bring a blanket if it might get cold, but wonderful evening all round!

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.
