Went to see Jon Richardson on a Thursday evening

Easy access and nice ticketing staff. Our seats were two thirds back (Row S) on the left hand side - and were absolutely fine with good views of the stage. It's a rush to get to... read more

Easy access and nice ticketing staff. Our seats were two thirds back (Row S) on the left hand side - and were absolutely fine with good views of the stage. It's a rush to get to the loo and buy a drink in the 20 minute interval - you have to be quick to try and get close to the... More

I often go to the mayflower with my husband, children or friends. They have great touring shows and plays. I always book the stalls, where the view is great no matter how far back you sit. Nice bar too!

My husband and I watched an adaptation of the classic Jane Eyre. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The theatre was clean and the seats comfortable enough.

We have been to this Theatre lots of times and the range of productions is stupendous, from West End shows, comedy to productions just for the little ones. There are a lot of eateries nearby and parking is not a problem. We love to sit in the stalls, and dress circle, but if the show is extra special, will sit... More

Step into the world of `old-time` theatre-the Mayflower is fairly new (about 70 years old) but feels `old-time`.When you enter it. It`s actually like Alice`s Wonderland... once inside you fall under it`s spell! Compared to the Millenium Centre theatre in Cardiff and the Theatre Royal in Plymouth, it`s `chalk and cheese`.At interval time, if you have a drink at the... More

Love going to the theatre and The Mayflower is the best on the south coast. Range and variety of shows is great. Tried Ovation restaurant twice, good food and wine and ambience is great, and so convenient to relax before a show and use during intervals. Support the theatre and keep it going. And the curious incident? of the dog... More

Been here numerous times now for different productions. Only issue I have is the seats.. I have this in most places though. Not quite enough leg room. Apart from that it's spot on. Doesn't take too long to get served. Facilities are clean. Never buy sweets from here though,It's like going to the cinema. So yeah, pretty good place and... More

With family and friends I've seen many shows at the Mayflower since I was very young. Every time the show is on time, the staff are very helpful and the atmosphere is buzzing. A beautiful venue with fantastic shows.

This is a great sized theatre offering great performances. We go several times a year and always take the children to panto on Christmas Eve. Remember cash for add ins like ice- cream in the interval, and flashing kids toys at pantomimes/children performance. The stalls are raised so great location, if your with young ones you can get seat boosters... More
