      I have just been to The Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre in London for the first time. The park is lovely to walk through with lakes, a bandstand and gardens to enjoy. The theatre itself is very impressive. The entrance area has a licensed bar which also serves snacks. You can take anything you buy there into the theatre to eat or drink during the performance.

      Seats are arranged in sloping tiers


      so wherever you sit you have a good, unobscured view. However, they are not the most comfortable seats I’ve ever sat in and if the performance is a long one, they would be just about bearable. Sets are obviously limited, but the atmosphere is brilliant and at night the theatre is lit, providing an extra dimension to the feel of the place.

      • theatre also stages concerts and even comedy acts.

        There were no problems with the sound, although noises from other parts of the park and things like passing helicopters and planes could be a bit annoying at times, especially during tense and quieter moments during the play.

        It was a beautiful day which I was thankful for as, although the theatre states that they hardly ever call off or abandon a performance, it can’t

        be much fun sitting in the rain and while tickets can be exchanged for another performance date, there are no refunds available.

        All in all I thought this was a really special setting for a performance of any kind. I really enjoyed the atmosphere of the theatre and the surroundings. The bar is a relaxing area to sit before, after and in the interval of the performance. I would definitely go again.
