Alhambra Theatre

We undertook a major programme of refurbishment and restoration of the Grade II listed Alhambra Theatre in Bradford. The depth of the stage and the height of the fly tower were doubled using the space gained by the acquisition of a former theatre behind the site.

A new foyer wing was added, housing the box office, restaurants and bars, and a new staircase inserted into the Edwardian rotunda to improve foyer circulation.
