“Great Theatre”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

We booked to see Blood Brothers at the Alhambra Theatre. Had great seats and although I have seen Blood Brothers half a dozen times I must say this was my favourite venue. It has such beautiful architecture inside and isn't too big that you feel swamped. It is a lovely sized theatre which is in the town centre, close to hotels and restuarants which offer pre/post theatre deals. Highly recommend.

“Cute little venue with lots of character!”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

Love this venue, its small and intimate but has so much character! Its always busy and has a very relaxed atmosphere which makes it easy and less intimidating for the audience to get involved.

“Awesome Venue”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

Been here a couple of times, to watch An Inspector Calls and Blood Brothers. Views have been excellent having sat towards the front and back, and the atmosphere with a full house in exciting.
The building looks beautiful, both outside and in, and the bar is not too expensive.
A Bradford gem!

“Great choice to see a show”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

The builiding looks wonderful... based on the Moorish designs of the original Alhambra in southern Spain.

Friendly and attentive staff and also great facilities for the disabled

theres also a studio at the side of the building which hosts comedy gigs and small scale productions so remember to check that out
