I visit the Alhambra a few times a year and every time I fall in love with the building more and more. The seats are lovely and comfy, with enough leg rooms between the rows. Entering the theatre, you're welcomed by lovely staff who always have a smile on their faces. I've never bought an alcoholic drink from the bar,... More

Went to the Alhambra on Friday night to see the Commitments. Had a fantastic time and thank you to the staff in the Laidler bar who made us feel very welcome. Casting was brilliant and thoroughly enjoyed the performance. I have to say the girls totally outshone the character Deco which was a shame. He had a good voice but... More

First time visit and was really impressed with this theatre. Good bars to enjoy a drink beforehand and prices reasonable. Place was packed for The Commitments final show which was a brilliant production. View of the theatre influenced by having enjoyed the show so much! Nearby parking was easy and will visit again.
