Established in 1932, the multi-award-winning Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre is one of the largest theatres in London (at a capacity of 1,256). Passionate about producing first class theatre for and in our unique setting which inspires, challenges and entertains, the scale and ambition of our outdoor productions makes us unique in the capital’s cultural landscape. Every year we welcome over 140,000 people to our 20-week summer season.


Timothy Sheader was appointed Artistic Director in 2007, James Pidgeon was appointed Executive Director in 2021.


Over the last twelve years, our productions have won seven Olivier Awards, seven WhatsOnStage Awards, and four Evening Standard Awards. We were named London Theatre of the Year in 2017 by The Stage, and received the Highly Commended Award for London Theatre of the Year in 2021. Our productions have toured the UK, and have transferred to both the West End and the United States. Our 2016 revival of Jesus Christ Superstar is currently touring North America for the second time.


As a registered charity that receives no regular public subsidy, over 90% of our income is currently generated from ticket sales. Nevertheless, we have maintained our lowest ticket price of £25 for nine years, our BREEZE scheme enables those aged 18-25 to buy tickets for £10, and we regularly work with local charities. Each year, on average, we subsidise tickets for 6,000 school pupils. In the past year, the number of Annual Members has increased by 31% and our Patron Scheme by 10%.


Our in-house bars and restaurants champion exemplary customer service and offer a selection of dining choices, including our waiter-serviced Covered Dining (recently certified as a Sustainably Run Restaurant), afternoon tea, and more casual options such as picnics, The Grill and The Pizza Oven.

Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre has become one of the most independently sustainable and financially successful producing theatres in the country, and we embark on the next stage of our vision with ever-increasing artistic ambition and entrepreneurial spirit.




Unicorn Theatre - Transforming young lives through theatre. At the Unicorn we create new, inventive and enthralling theatre experiences for children aged up to 13, offering an inspiring year-round programme of shows. Every year, we welcome around 65,000 families and schools through our doors, and many thousands more through Unicorn Online. We believe that young people of all ages, perspectives and abilities have the right to experience exciting, entertaining and inspiring work and we actively seek out children who wouldn’t otherwise attend, offering free tickets where needed. We develop work with children from our partner schools and community groups to ensure that our work remains relevant and informed by the young people we serve. Our values of courage, curiosity and respect run through everything we do.

Unicorn Engagement works directly with our audiences as collaborators via school and community partnerships, guaranteeing the voices of children are represented on our stages and that we remain relevant and useful to those we serve. Through these partnerships we ensure that children have the opportunity to influence and shape our artistic programme by being involved in the creative development of plays with artists and facilitators.

Our current partnership schools are in Southwark, Lambeth and Tower Hamlets. Our community partners are pan-London and linked by a shared wellbeing mission; these include Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), Body & Soul Charity and Young Carers Hubs.
