I went with some family members ,one who has aspergers to see a relaxed viewing of chitty chitty bang bang.It was amazing that nearly everyone who was there was with someone with a disability.All those that were without a disabled member just enjoyed the show.There was no 'tutting' or moaning about the people with a short concentration or a noisy...

Have only been to some of the musicals with my son who has always really enjoyed them. Never had any problems changing tickets or seating when required. Good customer service. Professional performances.

Last Tango was very good but the show overall length was short and the ticket price was quite high. Shows are usually good but it is an expensive night out

I totally agree with the recent reviews of "Thriller". I saw the show and thoroughly enjoyed it. Well done to the Mayflower management for booking it! May there be many more like it. "The place" as I have dubbed it is surely the proper subject of a review entitled Mayflower Theatre (my opinion, and not wishing to start an argument)... More

I love this place, seen some fantastic shows. It's close to the train station and town centre. There's lots of local eating facilities and even have one at the theatre where you can get the whole dinner and show package. Highly recommend .

We have been a few times (it is our closest "main" theatre after all!) so thought it about time for a review. This time we saw "The Last Tango" (my wife being a big Strictly fan...) which was actually very good. But the Mayflower itself really is excellent. Booking online is easy with tickets emailed. Staff are all friendly and... More

Really nice theatre. Comfortable seats and close to loads of pubs & restaurants. We enjoyed watching Thriller. Billie Jean was the highlight for me. Already looking at what is coming up and booking another weekend in Southampton.

My partner and I went to this "Amazing" show on Saturday 23.07.16 and the only way to describe it is fabulous. If you enjoyed the music of Michael Jackson I would throughly recommend that you make every effort to see this. Of all the performance that I have seen here this show ranks highly, there will only ever be one... More
