Take away the ceiling and walls of a theatre, and the traditionally perceived barriers seem to melt away too; the relationship between actors and audience is more direct and this creates the ideal environment for a group of young people to enjoy high quality drama.

Some FAQs

Is the theatre accessible by coach?

Yes, but you will need a free permit to access Regent’s Park which can be ordered when you make your booking. Please note that there is no coach parking in Regent’s Park.

Do you have a risk assessment we can use?

Whilst we are not able to supply individual risk assessments for your visit, we can help answer your questions and even arrange a site visit if required. As you would expect, the theatre has its own risk assessments as required by health and safety regulations which are available at the theatre for the relevant enforcement bodies to inspect.

Do I need to tell parents that the theatre is outdoors?

You should ensure that children are prepared for all weather conditions, including waterproof clothing and sun hats.
