The Royal Parks is a charity created in March 2017 to manage and fundraise for 5,000 acres of Royal parkland across London. Every year 77 million visitors enjoy London’s eight Royal Parks for their unparalleled opportunities for enjoyment, exploration and healthy living in the heart of London.

The Royal Parks have a long and historic tradition of hosting events dating back to the Great Exhibition, held in Hyde Park in 1851.  Since then, the Parade Ground has hosted a number of high profile and important national and international events such as Pavarotti in the Park, Live 8 and Nelson Mandel’s 90th Birthday celebrations.

Today, the events we host are world renowned, attracting millions of people to the parks each year and opening them up to new audiences and admirers. Money raised from events held in the Royal Parks goes back into maintaining and keeping them as beautiful as they are.

Hosting successful, iconic and world famous events is in our DNA, we have decades of experience and are proud of our event heritage.
