Picnics

Please note that picnics are NOT PERMITTED in the theatre unless you have a table booked. We would advise that you take advantage of the park and environs. Your bags can be brought into the theatre and staff will advise where you can leave them. Please be aware these may be subject to a search.

Patrons are welcome to picnic within the grounds of Opera Holland Park both prior to the performance and during the interval if they have purchased a picnic table.
