80th Anniversary 13
Jul

By Open Air Theatre

Opening on 13 July 1932 when Robert Atkins and Sydney Carroll presented a ‘black and white’ production of Twelfth Night, Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre is now celebrating its 80th anniversary.

Today, with a purpose built auditorium, picnic lawn, barbecue and a string of awards to its name, this unique theatre has become “an essential summer destination” (Evening Standard). For this anniversary season, "this exceptional space has been transformed into a world you’d never imagined” (Daily Telegraph) for a big fat gypsy telling of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and the Tony Award-winning musical, Ragtime.

For one week either side of the 80th Anniversary, we are also offering a top price ticket for £19.32!*

More information about the theatre's history can be found on our history page.

Tickets bookable online only for performances 9 - 21 July (excl. Saturday evenings) until 5pm, Sunday 15 July.
