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

Enjoyed the show, although it wasn't quite what we expected, there being no dialogue, it was more of a modern ballet. Very good all the same. The thetre itself is great, big, with easy parking in the multi story a couple of minutes walk around the corner, good restaurants nearby, and a great atmosphere. Highly recommended.

I went for the Saturday evening performance of Cirque Eloize - Cirkopolis. The tickets were very reasonably priced and we had a great view as well. The theatre itself is inviting with a relaxed atmosphere and having staff who were always smiling is always a plus! Although the main attraction was the performance itself; brilliantly executed acrobatics and high flying... More

We went to the Saturday evening performance of Cirkopolis by Cirque Eloize. The tickets were reasonably priced and easy to buy online direct from the theatre. The theatre has a nice relaxed atmosphere - the staff were friendly and helpful. The show itself was stunning! The performance was split into two three-quarter hour halves, with an interlude between, but, was... More

The Mayflower Theatre is a 2300 seat Theatre which provides the South with the biggest shows coming from London and touring spectaculars. We have recently seen the likes of War Horse, The Lion King and The Bodyguard here. The theatre has a bar on every level, the more stylish being the Footlights Bar, which does fresh sandwiches, Nachos and toasted... More

I came to see Edward Scissorhands a brilliant show, Front of House staff superb friendly and efficient. It's a magnificent building but still prefer the ambience of The Kings and the more intimate atmosphere. Seats are comfy but a job to see the numbers clearly

I usually travel to London to see my favourite passion of musical theatre. After reading several reviews of some of the touring shows I thought I would give The Mayflower a go for a show I missed in the "West End" The theatre is beautiful and equal in splendour & size to many I have been to in the "West...

Just been to see The Bodyguard at The Mayflower. A great evening. The whole show was excellent, particularly Alexandra Burke's powerful voice and great acting. The sound and lighting were also great. I have seen many shows here and always have a great night. We were sat in the stalls around half way back and had a fantastic view of... More
