We went to see Mary poppins show which was worth every penny . I love the alhambra but they desperately need to sort the ladies toilets and provide more 20 mins queuing is not acceptable

Book an aisle seat - not a front row seat ( Upper Circle)! We booked quite late so options were limited and my husband had a knee replacement and was unable to fully bend his knee so we decided to go for access and space over visibility opting for the Front Row of the Upper Circle. BIG MISTAKE! The legroom... More

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.

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
