About Mayflower Theatre & MAST Mayflower Studios

Mayflower Theatre is the biggest theatre on the south coast with just over 2,270 seats in our auditorium. Our aim is to bring a diverse range of shows to Southampton, and we present a mixture of spectacular touring productions, from musicals - many direct from the West End – to dance, opera, drama, ballet and comedy.We run as an independent theatre and operate as a charitable trust - we don’t receive direct funding from any external bodies, so all the money generated from tickets sales is invested back into the theatre, to support our community and education strategies and ensure the upkeep of our Grade II listed theatre.

MAST, approaching its first Birthday in May 2022, is a multi-art form cultural hub presenting and producing theatre, dance, musicals, music, comedy, circus, cabaret, spoken word, visual arts and family shows. We are community-led, with engagement and consultation at the heart of everything we do. We work with the best touring companies and local artists to present a diverse, vibrant, high-quality artistic programme, alongside our own productions and co-productions.

Across both venues, our Community and outreach programme - Engage - works throughout the community giving opportunities to take part and developing both future audiences and future theatre makers. This work leads into our Artist Development programme.

We have a vision to run a nationally recognised venue, providing emotionally inspiring experiences, and superior service. We continually strive to make this your regional creative hub of choice. To this end, we work to these core values: 

  • Integrity
  • Respect
  • Working Together
  • Transparent Communication
  • Service Excellence
  • Continuous Professional Development
