I go to The Alhambra at least once a month and it is one of the very few good things which Bradford has to offer. The building is magnificent and looks especially good at night when all lit up. The reception/entrance area is large and inviting.......the only down side is there are not enough ladies toilets and you spend ages queuing! Looking forward to seeing Aladdin there next month.

We went as a family to see Carnaby St twice this week not only was the show very good. But this is a lovely theatre and has been restored its a must see for anyone who loves the theatre.
You can purchase a book about the restoration and its one I'm looking forward to reading

We are regular theatre goers in different Yorkshire theatres and London. Watched Carnaby Street last night in the most uncomfortable seats (Grand Circle) we have ever experienced coupled with an over heated auditorium. The show was very good but spoiled by the seats and temperature- all around us were complaining about the heat- it was unbearable and we were in lightweight clothing. The Alhambra is lovely and we usually enjoy shows there but something needs to be done about the seats and heating levels.

Saw Priscilla Queen of the Desert at this beautiful theatre with 'senior saver tickets offered at really good value ,prices for a first night performance. I love this theatre and am immensley proud to be a frequent visitor to see many live shows in such a delightful traditional theatre environment, with plenty of space/ legroom in most stall and balcony seats and helpful staff.
