Our return visit to the Alhambra (to see a magnificent Lord of The Flies) was a great pleasure. The theatre is in wonderful condition, exceptionally clean and pleasant, with some lovely and passionate staff. Go and see a wonderful show there - and you have an unbeatable combination!

Went to see Lord of the flies this week and I have to say this theatre is beautiful an absolute gem of a building. Well maintained and looked after. Staff were helpful and yes OK £9 for a beer and a glass of wine makes you wince but hey ho so do most theatre prices wherever you are. Lovely venue

Saw Henry IV part 2 here. A bonus was that at this showing Shakespeare's words were put up on 2 screens at side of stage - really helped understanding. Seats around middle of 1st balcony were excellent. Recommended parking was very reasonable for a city centre and there are plenty of places to eat near by.

Went to see Thriller what a show brilliant from start to finish then went to see Barnum. Brian was outstanding as was the show but thought for a change we would have the first row of the dress circle what a mistake could not see half what going on, next time we will go back to the stalls.

We went to see Barnum at the Alhambra Theater in Bradford West Yorkshire last week. Not only is the Theater welcoming and not too big but the show was produced on the same scale as a London one. It is some years since I last saw Barnum with Jim Dale and before that with Micheal Crawford but the role was... More
