Mayflower Theatre in Southampton has been awarded a coveted Gold at the Beautiful South Awards 2016.

Held at the Hilton at the Ageas Bowl, the ceremony celebrated the visitor experiences available across the South and South East of England.

Established over 20 years ago, the Beautiful South Awards recognise excellence, quality, innovation and customer service.

We are delighted to be recognised once again for our commitment to making Mayflower Theatre an accessible venue for all. It is a team effort across the company to excel in being accessible.

– Michael Ockwell, Mayflower Theatre Chief Executive

The glamorous life of a high society lady

She was an aristocrat, actress, writer - and one of the most famous, glamorous characters on the London and Paris social scenes in the early 20th Century.

Lady Diana Cooper may not be a name we know today but, as a young woman, she moved in high society circles. It's her belongings - collected through the decades - that are of interest this week.

Her possessions are being auctioned off on Wednesday by the Berkshire auctioneers Dreweatts, as Lauren Hall explains.
