Dreamboats and petticoats was brill however the same cast seem to struggle with the sequel dreamboats and mini skirts. loads of enthusiasm and great singing but just cant get the audience going. I suspect from this show I would not bother if a third was announced. Give it a try if you like ballads as most of the songs were... More

What a fantastic theatre, has all the great shows, the staff are totally professional, and nothing is too much trouble. We have seen numerous productions, and have tickets booked for shows throughout the year. It is in a great location, and has good access for disabled. First class throughout, although the seats could do with being a little more comfortable

It has a large variety of shows often west end productions when they tour and usually run for a week or 2 so its not hard to get a ticket. Ticket prices can be high compared to other local theatres but you get what... More

I went with a group of friends to see Saturday Night Fever. The theatre is beautiful and has excellent facilities. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I have been a few times over the years and my only criticism is that the seats get uncomfortable after a while. We were in the stalls and I think the seats there... More

After booking seats in the Dress Circle for "Saturday Night Fever" we picked up our tickets at the box office and were well impressed by the courtesy and smartness of the staff. The Alhambra is an iconic building which has been brought into the 21st. century without losing any of the elegance and splendour (yes 'splendour') of the past. It... More

We went to see Matthew Bourne's Edward Scissorhand -what a superb piece. The venue was great - just lovely to sit and look around at the beautiful decor. Comfortable seats. A lovely size, not too big and not too small. The staff are really friendly and helpful. Good restaurants nearby.

The Alhambra Theatre is located in the centre of Bradford, surrounded by various restaurants and takeaway places for a snack or meal afterwards. The building itself is very posh and well kept. Drinks are available to purchase at intervals; reservations for drinks are also allowed if you ask at the bar. I have only ever sat in the upper-tier, and... More

This was the only northern venue where we could see our favourite choreographer's production but what a treat. We did not know what to expect and were happily surprised by the excellent front of house facilities and the attractive modern facade of the building. Access was very good and the seating was far better,for comfort and leg room, than our... More
