Open Air Theatre - Little Shop of Horrors

Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre brings the beloved mean green monster plant musical Little Shop Of Horrors to its unique outdoor setting.

Little Shop Of Horrors is the stage musical of Roger Corman’s hilariously zany film, with screenplay by Charles Griffith. A horror comedy rock musical, popular songs include the likes of Skid Row (Downtown), Somewhere That’s Green, and Suddenly, Seymour.

The production reunites much of the creative team behind Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre smash-hits Jesus Christ Superstar, including designer Tom Scutt and musical supervisor Tom Deering, and On The Town, including lighting designer Howard Hudson.

Cards Against Humanity is a card game for horrible people. Unlike most of the party games you’ve played before, this is as despicable and awkward as you and your fellow bobbers dare to be…

Cards Against Humanity has become one of our favourite socials but tonight we're taking it one step further.

Join us for a night of devilish, sadistic, twisted but hilarious fun!

Speakeasy Drinks

New is old news. It’s all about the retro as we revisit the days of America's Prohibition era in London's best speakeasy bars.

Our capital is brimming with elusive bars hidden behind unmarked doors and unassuming entrances. They invite those in the know to intimate yet raucous evenings. Join us as we sip cocktails from teacups, peruse menus hidden in books and soak up some jazz.

So, dust off your dancing shoes and dig out your map as London invites you into an underground world of illicit drinking.

Hula Hoop Class with Tracey

It may look easy enough but as many have found out the hard way hula hooping is not a skill we were blessed with.

Artistic London: Turner and Constable @ Tate Britain

Let’s be honest, if you don’t quite know what you’re looking at, art galleries can be a bit overwhelming. Thousands of paintings and sculptures, one after another... Where to start? When to stop?

So let’s do this differently. Rather than a mission to ‘see everything’ we’ll be focusing on just a handful of selected artworks, learning a bit about the artist who made it, why they did so, the style and techniques employed, where it fits in the canon of art history, and why it might be considered a masterpiece.
