Reviewed August 2, 2014

Being from Bradford I didn't appreciate what a fantastic theatre we have on our doorstep until I visited a theatre in London.
On my last visit I went to see The Buddy Holly story. The show was a real feel good show. Everyone was up and dancing at the end.
I am already looking for my next show to see at the Alhambra and won't be be needing to travel to London to see a show as our local theatre has everything we need.

“Happy Kids”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

Took four of our grandchildren to see Aladdin just after Christmas last year. Had second row seats in the stalls and even the smallest (age 4) had a great view. Seats were comfortable and theatre very clean. Have already booked for Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs for early January. Seats seem to be selling fast so would recommend booking soon. Billy Pearce excellent entertainer for the children and it is a joy to watch the little ones having such a good time.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed July 23, 2014 via mobile

Polite, friendly and attentive staff. Clean, well maintained and artistic theatre, excellent productions in comfortable seats with a roomy feel to the auditorium.
Most impressed, I like it more than the grand, and I'll definitely be going back

“Fantastic”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

Enjoyed an excellent performance of Warhorse. Matched only by the grand splendour of our magnificent surroundings. What a truly beautiful theatre. Very clean and well kept.
One slight niggle not exclusive to this theatre there aren't enough toilets.
