"Working at Mayflower Theatre" Story
I started with the Mayflower in 1987 [in] November, tearing the tickets on the doors. In January '88 I started full time as a Front of House Assistant. [I had many] different duties and one of them was to change the canopy every week. Changing the name of the shows [on the front of the building]. Up a ladder in all weathers!!! I used to hate it if we had a show with a long title! Sometimes the clips that were on the back of the letters were rusting and the odd letter would sometimes fall off onto the pavement! (What would health and safety say about that today?) Also, I dealt with poster changing and daily deliveries. - Steve Cove
