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.

“Buddy holly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014 via mobile

We went to see the buddy holly show and was truly amazing!!!!
Staff were so helpful and friendly and the pre order drinks for interval was a great idea too saves time queuing
The whole place was lovely and clean (even the toilets )
I was lucky enough to even meet a few of the cast from buddy after the show and get some autographs via the stage door big thanks to the lovely lady there for her help

I have been going to the Alhambra since I was a young boy for various different shows and I always have a good time there. The building itself is very grand and is an unusual looking building from the outside. These days it doesn't look like it belongs in the city when compared to the other building it has surrounding it. It's very beautiful and looks great a night. Inside the theatre is really nice with decorative ceiling and walls. You feel as if you have stepped back in time. The theatre always displays a variety of different shows which is great from classical to urban street shows it's got something for everyone. If you are staying in Bradford and there is show on you like this is a must.

“The Buddy Holly show”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

Brilliant performance, faultless!

All the cast were so professional, excellent musicians and singers.

Close your eyes and it could have been Buddy Holly singing.
