Champagne Canard-Duchêne is making a stage comeback, returning for the second year as the official champagne partner of Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre (pictured).

This summer, theatre-goers can enjoy Canard-Duchêne at the theatre’s bar, with Cuvée Léonie Brut NV available by the glass and bottle and Cuvée Léonie Green NV and Grande Cuvée Charles VII Rosé by the bottle.

They can also buy organic picnic hampers containing treats such as organic cheddar cheese, salted crisps, clotted cream fudges and oatcakes alongside a bottle of Canard-Duchêne Cuvée Léonie Green to enjoy before and during the play.

Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre attracts about 140,000 visitors between June and September and this year features Harold Brighouse’s classic Hobson’s Choice, which begins previews this week, the Gershwins’ Porgy & Bess and the return of hit play To Kill A Mockingbird.

Canard-Duchêne will also sponsor the press night of Hobson’s Choice on June 17.

Alexis Petit-Gats, managing director of Canard-Duchêne, said: “We are thrilled to be partnering with Regent’s Park Open Air theatre for the second year in a row. The ultimate summer destination, it’s incredibly inspiring to see actors performing in stunning surroundings and we feel that it’s the perfect environment to enjoy a glass of Champagne Canard-Duchêne.”

Andy Locke, commercial director for Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre, added: “At Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre we strive to deliver an unforgettable theatre visit by presenting top-quality theatre productions supported by an unparalleled hospitality service.

“As a brand which reflects these ideals, we are delighted to be working with Canard-Duchêne again and thrilled that, in partnership with them, our customers are able to make their open air theatre experience one which they will remember.”
