Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre have today announced their full programme of outdoor Summer events to complete their 2018 season. The one-off comedy and film events all take place on Sunday evenings.
Joining the already announced (and sold-out) performance by Joe Lycett (22 July), audiences can look forward to performances from Jimmy Carr (12 August) with The Best of, Ultimate, Gold, Greatest Hits Tour, and Simon Amstell (19 August) with new show What Is This?. Comedian Deborah Frances-White will also record her comedy podcast in front of a live audience in the evening of 15 July.
Meanwhile, The Luna Cinema returns to the Open Air Theatre this summer with three nights of classic cinema under the stars. With the Spice Girls looking set to announce their forthcoming reunion, their iconic 1997 movie, Spice World, is screened on 26 August, while this year’s smash-hit movie musical The Greatest Showman will be shown on 2 September. The season is concluded with a very special screening of Ridley Scott’s Alien (9 September).
Public booking for the events opens on Tuesday 27 February.
A hugely exciting Summer season lies in store at the al fresco venue, with the 2018 theatrical season at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre also including Peter Pan (17 May – 15 June), Benjamin Britten’s opera The Turn Of The Screw, in a co-production with English National Opera (22 – 30 June), As You Like It (6 – 28 July), Dinosaur World Live for ages 3+ (14 August – 09 September) and Little Shop of Horrors (03 August – 15 September).
