MAYFLOWER Theatre and AFC Totton are teaming up for a new partnership that will see the south’s largest theatre and the Southern League football club collaborate on new projects and promote one another’s upcoming fixtures and events.

The Mayflower Engage team will deliver workshops on musical theatre alongside a football workshop for young people at AFC Totton’s Snows Stadium.

Advertising hoardings promoting Mayflower Theatre will adorn the perimeter of the Stags’ home pitch while the Stags matchday programme and the theatre’s regular What's On booklet will promote upcoming events for both.
