Good seats. Good bar with plenty staff and good service. Good acoustics. The theatre has really good and very professional shows. Very nicely decorated and maintained. Very lucky to have this venue so close to home. Only a 30 minute drive for us

I have been to the Alhambra many times and have never been disappointed. They have top rated shows on regularly the seating is a bit close together , but that's usually the case in the old theatres. The staff are always pleasant and helpful. I also eat in the restaurant nearly every time I visit and again I am never... More

Too many stairs and the upper balcony made us dizzy. Too far to get from seat to toilets which were whole inadequate for the amount of people at the theatre. Drinks were expensive.

The Alhambra has been beautifully restored and when you walk through the front door it takes your breath away! Everyone needs to come here and experience it for themselves. My mum came here and now I have followed in her footsteps. I had the time of my life and i cannot wait to come again!!

Last week I took my 2 grandaughters to see this amazing stage production of Dirty Dancing. This was the first time I had been to this lovely theatre and our seats were in the upper circle on the front row giving us a great view of the entire stage. The girls love this film and I did wonder if they... More

We went to see Dirty Dancing.I loved the theatre itself, very well maintained outside and in. We were disappointed with the show itself and it was a real shame that a lot of the audience did not show a great deal of respect for fellow audience members shouting out things and general noisy behaviour! Perhaps the stewards should have been... More

After winning a family ticket to watch Peter Pan i was reluctant to use the voucher, but I thought I'd give it ago for my sons sake as he might have enjoyed it. The show and entertainment were surprising good and made the night most enjoyable. Not only did it entertain the children the show entertained the adults. Although I... More
