If you are looking for something memorable to do on a Summer’s evening, then I can think of nothing nicer than a night out at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre. It’s a permanent fixture and provides a great environment for a relaxing picnic, followed by the show of your choosing and I have never had a bad time there yet!
Most recently I saw Evita – which was truly spectacular and I would highly recommend to all. The set was simple and effective and the cast created a spectacularly illuminating insight into this enigmatic and fascinating figurehead. The show itself was a five star one.
The theatre is completely self contained and has it’s own facilities as well as a seated restaurant, a cafe/bar and an outdoor pinic area (buy one of theirs or take your own). You can also pre-book freshly cooked food from their BBQ at the same time as you book your tickets.
It’s been beautifully and thoughtfully laid out with plenty of seating and ample undercover areas. The gardens are immaculate and provide the perfect backdrop for the evening, both in the bar/restaurant/BBQ and stage area.
If I could offer advice, it would be to make sure you check out what’s coming on at the start of the season (Early spring is a good time) and book your tickets well in advance – they are a little like gold dust the longer you leave it.
As far as I can see there isn’t a bad seat in the house, a good view can be had from all angles and there are no pesky columns!
Just remember to take something warm for later in the evening and if you suffer from sitting in one place too long – you may benefit from a cushion.
Whatever you do though, just make sure you don’t miss out – it is a truly magical place and well worth tagging onto a London visit.
