Alhambra Theatre

The Alhambra Theatre, the jewel in Bradford’s crown, was the vision of Francis Laidler, a local impresario. Laidler had the idea and vision to build a brand new theatre in 1912 and it was two years later that his dream was realised.

The Alhambra Theatre was officially opened at 2pm on 18 March 1914. Five days later, it opened its doors to the general public on 23 March for a Variety show, which ran for a week.

The Alhambra Theatre is regarded as the North’s premier receiving venue and hosts the best in large scale entertainment from international dance to musicals, drama and Yorkshire’s biggest panto.

The course is completely free. If you choose residential there will be some small contribution to cover our costs.  The full week course can be completed one day at a time over the different course dates.  Also, the course can be offered to a Church fellowship and can be run during the week on different days or at weekends.  The course is very flexible but the full week must be completed to receive the certificate to graduate.  Group interaction is very important and we set a minimum of ten students and a maximum of 15 to enable students to participate and get to know each other.
