Go there every year for pantomime always a good night, and go for a lot of other shows as well. Just getting a bit pricy, but over all no complaints. We always get the seats we want, but we do book early, so there is no disappointment. Love Billy Pearce he is great makes the audience laugh, because when he... More

Great show. And really good restaurant. Just a lovely Theater to be in. My Husband is a theater buff and we had a lovely experience when the manager was kind enough to show us the auditorium before it was opened for seating. We were buying tickets and the super ticket sales woman contacted the manager for us and arranged not... More

Being from Bradford I didn't appreciate what a fantastic theatre we have on our doorstep until I visited a theatre in London. On my last visit I went to see The Buddy Holly story. The show was a real feel good show. Everyone was up and dancing at the end. I am already looking for my next show to see... More

Took four of our grandchildren to see Aladdin just after Christmas last year. Had second row seats in the stalls and even the smallest (age 4) had a great view. Seats were comfortable and theatre very clean. Have already booked for Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs for early January. Seats seem to be selling fast so would recommend booking... More

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...
