Share Article

This summer, part of Regent’s Park has been transformed into a theatre, allowing both tourists and locals to enjoy plays and music in stunning surroundings.

This unique event has seen Queen Mary’s Gardens, on the inner circle of Regent’s Park, transformed into an outdoor theatre, set in the centre of beautiful parkland. The theatre will be showing a selection of different plays and films until its final day for the year, which is on Saturday 8th September. There is accommodation conveniently located within easy reach of the event, including Millennium & Copthorne hotels near Hyde Park and the exclusive areas of Knightsbridge, Kensington and Mayfair.

Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre was founded in 1932, and has been designed in a traditional amphitheatre-style, which enhances its unique atmosphere and gives it classical charm. Despite the 1,240 seats, guests describe it as an intimate experience and it was stated in The Times that watching a performance at the theatre made for ‘a truly remarkable evening.’

There is a bar at the event, which serves meals and snacks from an hour and a half before the performances start until midnight. Alternatively, many visitors bring their own picnics to the events, or preorder them from the theatre.

Tickets are usually available on the day from the box office and prices start from as little as £20, however booking is advised for weekend performances and on other popular dates. This year’s performances include the play of Shakespeare’s ‘Midsummer Night’s Dream’ and the film Moulin Rouge. Previous performers at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre include Judi Dench, Ralph Fiennes and Richard E. Grant.

Millennium & Copthorne Hotels have six London hotels, all within easy reach of Regent’s Park, transport links and other top London sights and attractions.


Millennium & Copthorne Hotels operates a portfolio of over 100 hotels worldwide.
