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.

It's time they renewed the seating. They get hard & uncomfortable after a while. We have seen some great shows here over the years & we prefer it to the Leeds Grand.

The Alhambra is a lovely building in the centre of Bradford. The shows are top class and well worth seeing, you can also have a meal or a drink before you go in the threater. The inside of the Alhambra is stunning to say the least with a lot of the old features taken into account when the refurbishment was... More
