So lucky to have this great theatre and be able to see fantastic shows. I like every thing about it. There is a range of prices and seating with good views of the stage. Some matinees are especial value and can suit seniors like me as buses are close by.

We went to see "Anything goes!" And what a brilliant show. The cast were fantastic and the vocals of MIss Sweeney were amazing! Such a lovely theatre and after a disappointing show Saturday night fever this show was the best we have seen this year! Well done everyone

The service as stated was excellent, however, I was disappointed by the man course chosen. king prawn and shrimp tagliatelli. it looked very appetising sadly it wasn't very tasty, it was a sloppy mess. other than that the meal was excellent.

Good cast a bit of a slow start, but once the dancing started it picked up, wonderful cast, with excellent voices, and very enjoyable, lovely theatre not much leg room, they could improve by having a manned cloakroom, as I took my coat into the theatre, but had to sit with it on my lap,

Went to see the show on Thursday 2nd April and was so dissapointed with the production, it all seemed very ammateur. and the sound wasn't at all good.. Have enjoyed seeing other shows there which were all great., such an expensive day to our minds wasted, especially as we had to pay £42.50 each for the seats. and the car... More

Watched Edward scissor hands at the mayflower and had a lovely experience. Wasn't what I expected as it had no dialogue and was a ballet, but still enjoyable. The seats at the top are not comfortable at all though and we did move to the middle tier which was a lot more comfortable. We will be back.

Our first visit to the Mayflower and we were impressed by the ease of access from the Railway Station and the high quality of the stage production. Apart from the Restaurant within the complex, there is a wide choice of catering establishment nearby adding to the day. The Front of House staff were excellent and eager to give us background...

We saw the show 'Anything Goes' last night wasn't sure what to expect as the seats were only £15 in the stalls and the place wasn't full. What a fantastic show it turned out to be fast moving plenty of dancing, tap dancing and oldie songs which us senior people will remember. Quite a large cast and boy didn't they... More

We've been to several shows recently at the Mayflower, and have more booked. The quality of shows is generally very good and at an affordable price, far cheaper than London. Recent modernisation has been effective, with decent toilets and a well designed foyer. Plenty of parking is nearby, though the rabid council charges £2 to park after six. My major... More
