Belfast Open Air Theatre
« on: April 13, 2015, 06:13:50 AM »

Touted as the best open-air theatre outside London, the Belfast open-air theatre is held in Grosvenor Park and this year runs from 3/7/15- 23/8/15.

Tickets cost £18-£32.50/ £10 for anyone aged 12-19 and free for under 12's.

I don't know Grosvenor Park and I would've thought The Botanic Gardens would make a brilliant venue. I haven't been to the Belfast open-air theatre before, but I have been to Regents Park open-air theatre and it is a much more relaxed spectacle than sitting indoors, though admittedly the children can sometimes be a bit of a distraction, especially if babies start crying. 

Here's the programme for the forthcoming season:

Great to hear they have an open-air theatre in Belfast, I must make it my business to go there next time I'm back. 

I saw Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice at Regents Park a couple of years ago, spectacular performance, the same year I was lucky enough to see another one "Sense and Sensibility" at Killarney Castle when I was on holiday there, again a superb performance.
Que Sera Sera
