The venue looks great, but toilets a bit old and need a revamp. No parking, but lots of on-street parking available, which is free after 6pm and a few car parks nearby, just a short walk away. the binoculars are now £1 to use.

Fantastic performance & show. Took grandchildren both thoroughly enjoyed. Booked a box for four. But it was a top box ( h ) not the best for viewing. But at £55 Good value show. If going again would choose better seating.

My love affair with this venue began as a child when I used to come here to watch pantomime; a tradition that started here when Francis Laidler first opened its doors in 1914. The Alhambra never disappoints and my most recent visit was to see...More

Went to see ‘War Horse’ at the theatre. A really comfortable and pleasant theatre with a bar on each level. Beautiful architectural building which was restored some years ago.

Before a performance you are advised that it is not permitted to take pictures or videos. I am not sure if this is in all cases but it definitely is the case before big productions.
