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.

Show highlights in 2019 include our annual panto, Calendar Girls the Musical, Jersey Boys, The Bodyguard, Matilda the Musical, Doctor Dolittle, Kinky Boots, Matthew Bourne’s Romeo and Juliet and Motown the Musical.

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.
