About This Attraction

Mayflower Theatre is the biggest theatre on the south coast with over 2,200 seats in our auditorium – an independent Trust with the aim to bring a diverse range of shows to Southampton. Presenting a mixture of spectacular touring productions, from musicals – many direct from the West End – to dance, opera, drama, ballet and comedy.

Looking ahead, there’s plenty in store for families with highlights including The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe, Bedknobs and Broomsticks, Peppa Pig, The Lion King and of course a spectacular annual pantomime in December.

They also run many workshops and events for young people and families as part of our educational activities, see here for more details.

The theatre is run as a charitable trust and do not receive any funding from any external bodies, so all the money generated from tickets sales goes straight back into keeping the theatre alive. A visit to the county would not be complete without visiting one of the most talked about attractions in Hampshire.
