Open-air theatre season in London stretches from March to late October: Londoners are just that tough. Or at least, optimistic about the weather.
Substantially it revolves around a few key theatres, notably Shakespeare’s Globe – which is open for by far the longest time – and the delightful Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre, which is open late spring to the end of summer.
But there’s plenty of other stuff, especially as the summer reaches its height, from the ambitious street theatre of the Greenwich and Docklands International Festival to the musical theatre blowout of West End Live.
