The Roman Theatre Open Air Festival




A summer of breathtaking outdoor events in a one of a kind location.

A programme of events with something for everyone, in the stunning outdoor surrounds of The Roman Theatre of Verulamium.

The Roman Theatre of St Albans is located to the west of the city, built in the year 140AD as part of the Roman city of Verulamium. It is believed to be the oldest theatre in the country that is still producing theatre today. Each year, OVO produces a summer open air festival which has grown to be one of the UK’s leading outdoor events.

There is no parking or drop-off at the Roman Theatre itself – parking is available at the nearby NCP car park next to the Verulamium Museum.

Due to the challenges of this historic site, disabled access is limited but we strive to accommodate guests with limited mobility – please contact us at in advance of your visit so we can discuss your needs.
