Polite, friendly and attentive staff. Clean, well maintained and artistic theatre, excellent productions in comfortable seats with a roomy feel to the auditorium. Most impressed, I like it more than the grand, and I'll definitely be going back

Enjoyed an excellent performance of Warhorse. Matched only by the grand splendour of our magnificent surroundings. What a truly beautiful theatre. Very clean and well kept. One slight niggle not exclusive to this theatre there aren't enough toilets.

I have been going to the Alhambra since I was a young boy for various different shows and I always have a good time there. The building itself is very grand and is an unusual looking building from the outside. These days it doesn't look like it belongs in the city when compared to the other building it has surrounding...

Brilliant performance, faultless! All the cast were so professional, excellent musicians and singers. Close your eyes and it could have been Buddy Holly singing.

A party of 42 went to see buddy holly story. Well done to everyone concerned with the production of this show. Fantastic, brilliant lively and entertaining. What a show. Saw this in London some years ago but thought this was much better.

Diane & I visited 5-7-14 for Dawn French's stand-up show - very good by the way - we arrived in good time and made use of the entirely adequate facilities (bar, toilets: both well appointed) before making our way to our seats. The major issue arose after the show when it took an absolute age to get out of the... More

I go to the Alhambra theatre quite often with my sister and friends. A really great venue for shows of all different types from top west end musicals, plays and ballets .The only downside is the seats are a bit uncomfortable I think they need re upholstering .The restaurant is very good and serves really nice food but the drinks...

We have been twice in the last few weeks - firstly to see war horse and then today to see rock of ages. Both productions were brilliant in their completely different ways. The Alhambra is a great venue - seats are comfy and the staff are always helpful. Pay more to get good seats - it's worth every penny!
