This show did not make sense at all and I feel it was an insult to the film. The songs were not sang at the same time (scene) and the story just didn't make sense. My daughter age 7 fell asleep and we ended up leaving half way through. Boring and a waste of money.

Had a great evening at the Alhambra - the show was Mary Poppins, top class cast, excellent dance routines, songs etc. Especially the two Children. The theatre looks great, I guess the inside has been refurbished in the not to distant past.

This was an absolutely amazing show, one of the best I've seen. At first I thought the price of the ticket was expensive but after seeing the show I certainly got what I paid for. It was a spectacular show and I would really recommend you go see it. A show not to be missed. The cast and staging were... More

Myself, my husband and our friends recently attended Mary Poppins. The show was absolutely amazing but the staff at the bar during the interval were absolutely horrendous. One woman in particular named Charlotte was very rude, the way she spoke to the other two members of staff was disgusting, she constantly patronised and embarrassed them in front of myself and...

First time we have been to this theatre, but won't be the last. Went to see Mary Poppins which was excellent. The theatre is a historic beauty, full of splendour and grandeur. We found the staff to be helpful and pleasant. Our seats where in the stalls, row K, which where comfortable and had plenty of leg room (I'm 6... More

Fantastic show, magical, great value for money. Saying more would need spoiler alert. Was sat at the back of the upper circle, very low narrow seats & I'm quite small.

Cafe gone massively downhill, thanks to insane management ruining the menu. Food is now pre- made sandwiches with ridiculous fillings such as smoked salmon or good old Wensleydale cheese which is smothered in nasty onion goo. No more jacket potatoes, which were excellent. So turned up at theatre for Mary Poppins expecting to have my usual jacket with cheese only... More

The show and dinner beforehand were both excellent - the level of service for staff in the restaurant was superb and really added to a welcoming atmosphere. I also have to complement another individual. We saw the Thursday showing of Mary Poppins which included a sign language presentation at the left side of the stage. We were sat in the... More
