Gary Barlows show the band was good to see at this theatre. Comfy seat and excellent booking service. My only problem was first half of show I could not make out what girls were saying as their northern accents were hard to decipher

Always a pleasure to visit. Saw the Nutcracker. Excellent! However, we were disappointed at the prices of the ice cream and drinks (£2 for a small water, eek!). But always clean, comfortable and a joy to visit.

Our first ballet........ Was amazed by the size of the orchestra pit and they sounded amazing. Ballet certainly was different but was worth seeing. Looking forward to Slavas Snow Show in a couple of weeks 😊

Attended an evening performance with my Mum- we saw Crazy for You. Good leg room, friendly staff really great feel to the place. Well located to the centre, we stayed at the Southampton central Travelodge it was £5 by taxi. Worth a visit

Have been to many productions at The Mayflower. It's a great 'traditional' theatre with plenty of atmosphere. Seats are comfortable and sightlines good. The staff are both polite and helpful. The car parks are a little away from the venue but the walk is OK...More

Fab theatre. Saw Crazy for you. Friendly staff, clean toilets. Plenty of leg room but I’m not not very tall. Car park close by.

Went to see Crazy for you, a lovely musical based on Gershwin's songs. Amazingly talented artists in a show filled with humour, good timing and great music. The theater itself is like a trip back in time, charming and well worth a visit.
