We are huge theatre fans and this one is by far the grandest outside of the west end . Jane McDonald brought the house down but even the staff were on form. Most pleasurable

The show was good, Billy Pearce is great! The sound wasn't so good, often as to strain to hear spoke words over the background music, very muffled £2 for a bottle of pop is a hit steep!

A lovely theatre , always lovely shows. But Panto this year is really loosing the plot. The sexual innuendos and hip thrusting my Billy Pearce is getting out of hand. It starting to look really weird a man of his age chasing a young 'Princesss' When they are young enough to be his daughter. Main issues are its getting too... More

I visited here with my partner and two children on Dec 30th. I paid £120 for four tickets as there were no concessions available for that date. We sat in the dress circle. The pantomime itself was fab. Billy Pierce never ever fails to disappoint, and the 3D effects were brilliant. On a side note, I had misplaced my tickets... More

The Alhambra was likely the first theatre I ever visited (oh, the pantomimes, so many pantomimes) and though I've been to many since then I still think it stands out as one of the most beautiful theatres I've been to. Definitely worth a visit, I'm looking forward to seeing Wicked there in the summer.

We visited the theatre on New Years Eve to watch the pantomime. It was excellent. 3D effects we have not seen used in panto before. The only issue we had was with the seating. We sat on the front row of the upper dress circle. My partner is 6'3" tall and there was no leg room at all, he sat... More
