Generously funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, during 2016/17 we ran our My Story project to document and share our theatre’s history and the personal stories of the local community. This involved creating our online archive and working with a team of young people to interview and capture the personal stories that bring our theatre’s rich history to life. The stories were then collated by our young people and our My Story film was created.
Some stories from the project
"I am Chloe and I am 9 years old. And when I was a bit younger I came here to watch Peppa Pig, and it was really good. It made me want to come to Mayflower Theatre again and again and again." - Chloe
