Have now been twice, Panto and Flavia and Vincent show in 2014, sat in the circle both times, a few rows from the front, loved it, such a surprising building inside, bar, pre-order drinks available, will go again, not cheap obviously so special occasions but very enjoyable.

Its great the west end shows come here eventually and there is always something good on. The prices are the same as London for the bigger shows which is a little disappointing.

Went to see wicked and the lion king recently and last years panto. A great theatre in the centre of Southampton steeped with history. It's wonderful to have this and the fantastic shows that are played here. There are a few bars (3 that I counted) which means we've always managed to get a drink. Plenty of toilets (as long... More

Saw Wicked on its last night at the Mayflower, what a great night. Although our seats were in the 'stalls' and off to one side we still had a good view of the stage. The cast were great, the story line was funny and sad with fantastic vocals from the leade and good support from the cast. A night well... More
