I have been to the Mayflower theatre quite a few times, on my own, with friends and with work. I have found that wherever I have sat that I can see the productions well. I do think that the sweets and ice creams are overpriced but no more than any other theatre 🎭 I have been to. They always have... More

We had a lovely time visiting The Mayflower to watch Robin Hood. We were sat in Row S in the stalls, we had a great view, the show was fantastic and we will definitely visit again. Even my 3yr old loved it!

A great place to see shows locally. A beautiful venue too. Easy to book online and I love the fact that you can order drinks in advance and then not have to queue during the interval.

Superb pantomime with fabulous effects. Comfortable seating but limited number of toilets leading to long queues. Theatre can be very expensive- tempting to travel to London to see West End show on cheap coach instead .

The mayflower theatre is a beautiful old building that hosts some amazing shows, I have been a regular visitor for a long time and I am always in awe of the building. The only issues the Mayflower theatre has in my opinion is not enough toilets and you can spent most of the interval queuing.

I was given tickets for myself and my partner, by my sister. It was a special night out, and very enjoyable. A great excuse to dress up, have fun, and relax

We have been to many shows at the Mayflower and, most recently, The Buddy Holly Story which was fantastic. Our tickets were a Xmas present but we had to change the dates as my wife was working abroad. The theatre changed the tickets with no problem. The front of house is now modern and the theatre has a good restaurant... More
