The best theatre in west yorkshire I would say, a favorite of many of the stars and there has been lots of them starring here in Bradfords historic theatre, Book a meal then see a show, a full evening out

“First Class”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Had a meal in the restaurant before seeing this years pantomime and we wern't dissapointed. 3 adults and one child aged 5 all had a 2 course meal and drinks for £51.00. There was a great choice and the food was served fresh by the very obliging staff which is different to how it use to be (it use to be a help yourself buffet) that was never very hot. The restaurant is now on the top floor and in a much quieter area with superb views over Centenery Square. Would certainly recommend and will most certainly be eating there again on our next visit to the theatre

“Best pantomime”
Reviewed January 1, 2013 via mobile

The second year we have been to the panto as an extended family - shunning our local one as Billy Pearce is so brilliant. This year's Cinderella was terrific with great special effects. Our toddler was transfixed and has remembered a lot of Buttons catchphrases days afterwards! The theatre is a great venue - view and sound perfect, already looking forward to next year.

I've been going to the pantomimes for s few years now and enjoyed each one. Could do with more personal souvenirs to the show itself
