We were lucky enough to go and see Billy Ocean at The Mayflower. He was very good and got us all up on our feet. The only criticism would be that the sound quality was so poor (lots of people near to us mentioned it as well). We hoped that checks would be made throughout the concert and it would... More

Beautiful traditional little theatre, we have seen many nice plays here. It would be nice if staff did not keep on opening doors so they can watch the show. Could they not enter from the door at back of room?

Took both our little ones (4 years and 8 months) to see Justin's party. The show itself was brilliant! The theatre was immaculately clean and the staff all friendly and helpful. They offer "babes in arms" tickets for this particular show which is a really nice touch :) the staff were great allowing you to wonder up and down the... More

We went to see Billy Elliot and had a great time. However, we found that the front row was very far from the stage unlike the other theatres we have been to. We saw it twice and the other time we sat second row. It was sometimes hard to see due to people's heads, so think the front rows should... More
