That’s all the sports events, but there are lots more outdoor events in London during May including:

A walk in the park… to see the batsMay 2014Here’s your chance to observe the cute little bats that live around the grounds of Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens. Hopefully you will see at least three different species — common pipistrelles, soprano pipistrelles and noctules, feeding over the water.

Open Air Theatre — Arthur Miller’s “All My Sons”May 2014Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre is putting on a production of Arthur Miller’s “All My Sons” — a moving story of denial, guilt and social responsibility.

One of Joe’s sons, who was himself a pilot, was thought to have been killed in action, but his mother can’t accept his death.

Can their love overcome the obstacles? Or will their relationship end with the ultimate sacrifice?
