We are working with the National Autistic Society to offer an Autism-Friendly performance of Peter Pan in 2018.
This specially adapted performance is suitable for people with autism, with trained staff on hand, and a dedicated quiet area should anyone need to leave their seats.
As an outdoor theatre without the perceived barriers of walls and ceiling, theatregoing at Regent's Park Open Air Theatre is an open and welcoming experience, and one which families can enjoy together.
You can find additional information about your visit, including details about the theatre, and what might be expected in the performance, in the sections below.
The Autism-Friendly for Peter Pan is at 2.15pm on Wednesday 30 May 2018.
Whilst the performance is also on-sale to the general public, we have reduced the number of tickets available, and have also allocated 400 tickets for those with autism and their families. It is important to use the booking form at the bottom of this page, to enable us to seat customers according to their individual preferences – which includes us allowing space around each booking.
Tickets for those with Autism are at our access rate of £25.00 (and for young people, our U18 half price concession rate will also apply); one companion can also attend at the access rate. Additional tickets will be at full price, but there are discounts for those under 18, and over 60. We do prefer to speak directly to customers if there are specific access needs, so that we can best accommodate them, so please refer to the section below on how to book tickets.
Whatever the weather, performances are never cancelled before the advertised start time. Should the performance be cancelled due to poor weather, customers will be able to exchange their ticket for a future performance, although these won’t be specially adapted for those with autism. Alternatively, you will be able to exchange your ticket for an Autism-Friendly performance in a future season. Find out more about our Weather Policy

Guidelines for Parents and Teachers
This production is suitable for primary school age and over. It is framed by a First World War setting, and starts in a field hospital where soldiers have been injured in action. The adventure then continues in Never Land.
“An enlightening interpretation to the original that will touch adults, and copious adventure, excitement and wonder to keeps kids enthralled” (Culture Whisper)
“My early stage secondary school companion enjoyed this Peter Pan as much as I did. Each of us brought our own level of understanding to this unexpected reworking; each found satisfaction” (The Observer)
It remains the responsibility of the parent/guardian in advance of purchase to make their own judgement as to the suitability of the show for their own child. In any event, please note that children under the age of 4 are not permitted to the theatre or theatre grounds for this production.
