I have seen some excellent shows here including musicals. There are places to eat nearby so you can combine dining out with a show, and not too bad a price either. Great half time ices as well, if you have room after your meal! Go pay it a visit, even if to see the amazing architecture inside.

Went to see Barnum with Brian Conley and Linzi Hateley last week. The show was spectacular! Brian and Linzi wow the crowd time and again with their loving yet oftentimes emotional and enjoyable portrayal of Mr and Mrs Barnum. The ensemble were incredible, right from the start when they come and interact with the audience through to the dance numbers... More

Musical theatre & Londons Theatre District are a passion of mine. With tickets costing more & more am now trying The Mayflower for some shows. I have previously reviewed the theatre and having been to many many theatre's in London that The Mayflower is on par to many in London. Barnum. Wow what a show. I had never seen it... More

We love the show 'Barnum'. Many years ago when it was at the London Palladium we saw it a total of 5 times. Michael Crawford played Barnum. This time Brian Conley took the role. Full marks to the Mayflower theatre for having an 'accessible' entrance to the theatre. Hooray for them. For someone like me with mobility difficulties it is... More

Been a couple of times now and have to say the experience has been poor both times. What we have seen has been fine, it's just the theatre itself...the place is very tatty, paint peeling in places, worn and uncomfortable seats, and high prices. You just don't feel a visit is a special occasion. The whole place needs a lot... More

Visited this theatre to see a variety of productions and have sat in a variety of seats - not been disappointed yet. Seats are roomy and very comfortable. London productions transfer here and the prices are cheaper. Even the 'seats in the Gods' area are fairly easy to get to. The bar area is on a split level and can... More

A fantastic production, great acting from the whole cast. We really enjoyed the evening. We have previously seen a few versions of this play and this was by far the best. David Suchet made a very believable and funny Lady Bracknell. Well worth seeing. A great evening with no bad language and side splitting content.

The Mayflower is our local theatre and our experience is of great productions and casts of Christmas Pantomimes from Cinderella with Brian Connolly and Gok Wan in 2014 and Barnum which we are going to see in a few weeks time

The mayflower Southampton is a lovely venue, with beautiful ornate ceilings. Nicer than many London theaters. Prices are cheaper than in London and has wonderful program of shows to suit all tastes, if you have never been to a theatre, treat yourself, you will love the whole experience. The staff are knowledgeable and friendly.
