A grand grade II listed theatre located right at the heart of the city, Mayflower has a charm of its own. Having a history of more than 80 years the theatre was known by other names. It opened for the first time on 22nd December 1928 and was then known as Empire Theatre. It’s plays suffered initially as cinema was the new attraction and was then taken over by the Gaumont British Picture Corporation. It was later named as ‘Gaumont’ and included plays as well as music concerts by many famous artists like The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and Queen.

After a couple of refurbishments, today the theatre holds plays, concerts, musicals as well as weddings. It also has a superb restaurant named ‘Ovation’ attached to it. There are luxurious suites with bars attached, VIP boxes and balcony, everything you can imagine for a grand experience for the visitors.

Mayflower Theatre, Southampton Reviews - Write a Review

  • Still a great venue for shows and music. Plenty of charm. Ovation restaurant at the top is a nice way to start a show off too. Over the years the food and service has been consistently very good. Worth a look but suggest you book when you buy your show tickets.

  • Having been to the Mayflower on many occasions (and loved it) on this occasion we visited the Ovations restaurant for a 3 course meal and Only Fools & Horses comedy show. What a fabulous evening - nicely prepared food and exceptional entertainment. Parking also nearby. A night to remember.

  • Easy to access from the train station. Lovely theatre , staff helpful. Shows are always excellent. Show tonight' The Band ' was fantastic.

  • Just saw the Railway Children production here. Packed out. The Mayflower is having a makeover in 2018 to make it even better. Wheelchair accessible entrance available .

  • Bag checking a bit in clear. Maybe put on the ticket procedure or if perminant then better channeling to the check point. Or better still a scanner. Just to point out suicide bombers put it on there person so checking bags won't help much .
