We really enjoyed the show and the staff were friendly and helpful. There are bar and toilet facilities which are both well maintained. We had a drink in the interval and... More

this building dating back to the 30's is one of the few highlights left in this once proud city that was abused by the council and the builders back in the 60's / 70's--seen many a show here over the years---the best being the Billy Fury story.

I've been to the Alhambra Theatre a number of times and I must say it is one of the best theatres in Northern England. It's 1920's inspired Art Deco features come alive on show nights with the elegant lighting and the glass facade. Inside the lobby is warm and welcoming. The theme continues into the theatre itself being beautifully decorated... More

Bradford has to be congratulated for supporting this lovely old theatre. It has been brought up to date with sensitivity and good taste, keeping all the character and improving the comfort and experience of the audience. I used to enjoy dinner in the restaurant before a show until the car park behind Jacob's Well changed the time when it was... More

I have visited this theatre 10+ times and have finally managed to sit on all three levels. Sitting at the very top is good if you are wanting some cheap, last minute tickets as you can still see the stage. I always sit on row A with the restricted view however it has never bothered me, I just lean forward.... More
