• About Us

  • We are the biggest theatre on the south coast with over 2,300 seats in our auditorium – we are an independent Trust with the aim to bring a diverse range of shows to Southampton. We present a mixture of spectacular touring productions, from musicals - many direct from the West End – to dance, opera, drama, ballet and comedy.

    We are run as a charitable trust and we don’t receive any funding from any external bodies, so all the money generated from tickets sales goes straight back into keeping the theatre alive.

  • Mayflower Theatre Trust's mission is to:

    • Fulfil the theatre’s potential to be the leading presenting theatre company in the country, with a distinctive, popular, effective and high-quality artistic programme.
    • Provide a theatre that is welcoming and accessible to all members of its community.
    • Make every effort to exploit commercial opportunities and operate efficiently, with the highest standard of customer service, to maximise benefits and value for money to our Board, patrons, producers and partners.
    • Value and invest in our people and develop their potential.
