Regent’s Park: Open-air Theatre and free Frieze sculptures are back


The two annual summer fixtures return to London’s prettiest park. Why not do them both in an evening?



You’d have to be a ghoul not to appreciate arguably London’s loveliest central lung at this time of year.

And these twin seasonal happenings only make Regent’s Park even more desirable. Created way back in 1932, NW1’s atmospheric open-air theatre is a magical space known for its dynamic productions – big hits recently have included Hello, Dolly!, Lord Of The Flies and Jesus Christ Superstar.

This year’s smash is the Lloyd Webber musical Evita, but there are also comedy nights and outdoor cinema showings aplenty (A Star is Born, Mary Poppins Returns).

And the food options are pretty varied, too. Find out more about what you can eat and drink in our separate guide here.

Cord by Jodie Carey, 2019, earthcast bronze, 287 x 28 x 28 cm
Meanwhile, a brolly’s hurl away, free outdoor exhibition Frieze Sculpture is back in the colourful English Gardens, featuring works by 20 artists from world-leading galleries.

If you’ve only got time to see one, don’t miss the four-metre-long bronze figure, When I Sleep, by iconic Brit artist Tracey Emin. And try also to catch the delicate bronze Cord by Jodie Carey (above), a London-based sculptor better known for installations in fabric, wood, or plaster.

This is box title
Tickets for Evita (until 21st Sept): openairtheatre.com, free entry to Frieze Sculptures during daylight hours (until 6th Oct), both Regent’s Park NW1
