We booked only yesterday and got last minuite tickets on the Balcony. We had a fantastic view and the show is brilliant. Brian Conley is a showman working very well with Gok Wan as the fairy Gok mother and the cast are superb. Costumes are amazing - would highly recommend the show - excellent value for money. Would also say... More

We Wen't for my mother's birthday treat along with my husband, our 4 year old daughter and my inlaws. My mother is disabled so we sat at the back in the disabled section. The seating is really well set out in the disabled area with plenty of leg room. The waiting area is also really comfortable and the theatre staff... More

Absolutely love the Mayflower Theatre. In a very convenient location and hosts many amazing shows with such a diverse selection too. I normally choose the balcony seats as they are significantly cheaper and you still get a great view but I wouldn't recommend if you have long legs as it would be most uncomfortable.

This is the best Pantomine I have ever seen. We go every year but this is my favourite. Fairy Gokmother was excellent but Brian Conley stole the show. If you are feeling low this Christmas period don't go the doctors but go to this Pantomine for the best tonic ever!!! I promise you a laugh from start. To finish.

We are so fortunate to have the wonderful Mayflower Theatre in Southampton. It attracts all the touring opera, ballet and musical productions right here on our doorstep. Prices are better than London but the shows lack none of the performance of the London theatres.

What can I say? OMG. I can honestly say that I have never seen anything so AMAZING in my entire life. That may sound over the top but it was TRULY the most AMAZING theatre experience EVER. It is suitable for all ages and possible the most SPECTACULAR SHOWSTOPPING performance you will EVER witness.

A fantastic theatre facility with a great range of shows - but priced to hurt. Saves on the train fare to London I guess. It has become a 'once a year trip' rather than a regular one... Better priced theatres locally - but not able to match the lavish West End sized productions that you can see at the Mayflower.... More

Just been to see Riverdance (December 2014), great old threatre inside, which adds to the experience. We had seats in the balcony, so had to climb all the stairs which was fine with us, but felt sorry for the old generation that we saw walking down the stairs after the preformance. Toilets could do with being updated, and the coffee... More

A lovely old theatre, but toilets could do with improving, the shows are all great & no matter where you sit you can see & hear everything, fantastic. Saw Riverdance, sat right at the back.

I guess that you could say that we are hooked on the theatre. We have been very lucky in our married lives (40 years) to have been able to visit theatre in many parts of the UK, Eire and Europe. What a great suprise it was, earlier this week when we visited the Mayflower in Southampton. A truly fantastic building.... More
