Hairspray was an amazing show! Cast, costumes, the stage was all top class. The theatre it self is well laid out, although refreshments are very pricey! I've added a photo from row X seat 21 in the stalls excellent view of stage for both adults and kids.

Excellent production. The cast were excellent. Our seats in the balcony gave us full view of the wonderful dancers. The acoustics ensured we heard every word and sound of the brilliant singers and the band. Staff were polite, courteous and helpful. Thanks for a great evening.

Once again a great show, in this case, Hairspray - cast were uniformly excellent and I would not hesitate to see it again. Theatre staff were also helpful and pleasant. However, there were one or two problems with microphone failures so occasionally some cast members could not be heard. After sitting in the cramped and uncomfortable circle last year, this... More

Mayflower always have many shows and never disappoint with the shows it puts on. It also puts on a great Christmas panto, with big stars for all the family. They have a few bars inside which are well priced. They also have a restaurant, Ovation restaurant.

Tickets for Blood Brothers were bought for me as a birthday gift from my daughter. theatre tickets are not cheap but it's nice to go for a treat. The show was good even though sometimes the clarity of Marti Pellows voice was poor. If your on a budget take drinks and snacks with you as buying there is a little... More

I really like the mayflower and being semi local, I always like to see whats happening. I recently visited to see Sweeney Todd, which was fab. I would like to see special deals every now and then because prices can be a bit expensive. Even something such as 'a free drink with every ticket' type offer would make it more... More
