The latest from WarHorse


This week we arrived at the Mayflower Theatre in Southampton, where we will be playing from now until Saturday 9th June. 

Joey and Albert headed over to ITV Studios for an interview with Fred and Sangeeta from ITV Meridian News. As well as plugging the current run at the Mayflower Theatre in Southampton, ITV gave a shout out to the New Victoria Theatre, Woking and the Marlowe Theatre, Canterbury where we will be coming later in the tour. They also visited Titchfield Abbey where they met some school children from Titchfield Primary School. Coverage can be seen here on the Daily Echo. The moment was captured by Wave 105 for Facebook Live. Wave also interviewed the Joey puppeteers, which you can watch here.

Southampton are loving the show, with the five star reviews flooding in:

“This is theatre at its most epic – believable, brilliant and utterly engrossing.” Chichester Observer  and West Sussex Gazette

“Truly, truly brilliant. Truly, truly theatre.” Portsmouth News
