“Special Theatre.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Seen so many first class shows here. Just to go inside quickens the pulse. The tradition of theatre really lives in this building.

“Good performances”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

I have been to Alhambra many times and have always enjoyed the surroundings. Performances they put on are normaly of good quality. Parking is the biggest problem. If you can get the train in to Bradford Forster Square and walk this would be the best way to get there.

“Difficult online booking”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

We like this theatre and the productions it puts on. HOWEVER when trying to book tickets online, the "button" that allows you to pick seat location does not work. So we were allocated seats right on the ends of the rows. We were so upset about this that we telephoned the box office. The staff there could not be more helpful in solving the problem but implied that it is a IT issue that has been reported. Really frustrating!!!

“Top class entertainment at a reasonable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

We tend to go with friends so usually book a lounge. This we feel is better than a box and is downstairs so no stairs to climb. We have dined here and found the food to be very good. There is a wide variety of shows through-out the year so there should be something for ever-one including children.
