Show was fantastic. Certainly lifted January blues, would highly recommend this to anyone. No "Big" name actors, but these performers were Ace. Mayflower staff friendly and welcoming as one would expect

Buddy, very lively show, excellent singers and dancers. Only thing I would say is that the dancers didn't jive at all which was more in keeping with the music. Thoroughly enjoyed the show.

A lovely theater and being small it meant good views of stage. Not much seating in the bar area, my daughter-in-law had to bottle feed baby standing up!!!

Really impressed with this theatre. It was bigger than I was expecting a much smaller venue. The staff were attentive and it was an excellent afternoon.

We went here to see the xmas panto. The theatre was very well organised and easy to use. Lots of restaurants in the same road but its also only a 5 minute walk to Upper Bar Street which has a lot more choice for restaurants.

I was totally amazed by the 3D and the dinosaurs in this show. Also all those who played parts in this show. Shane Richie as Robin Hood, certainly made the show, along side the brilliant Fryer Tuck, Merlin, Villain and those who did the acrobats. I would certainly recommend this show as a must Pinto to go and see, but... More
