Ken Dodd makes a welcome return to the Alhambra Theatre
Ken celebrated his 60th anniversary year as a professional entertainer in 2014 - having made his debut in 1954 at the old Empire Theatre, Nottingham. The same year (2014) that the Alhambra Theatre celebrated its centenary year, Ken wrote this special message:
Ken Dodd‘I have had the pleasure of appearing at the Alhambra Bradford on many occasions in Variety and Pantomime. I’m proud of the fact that the 1959/60 Jack and the Beanstalk is the record breaking panto run of recent years. I remember giving out Easter eggs from the stage!
The Alhambra is a real theatre – steeped in theatrical history and tradition. It looks like a great theatre – it is a great theatre. It is an honour to play there and I have great affection and many happy memories of this lively building.’
Now Ken Dodd returns to the Alhambra Theatre for the first time in many years with his famous Happiness Show. You’ll be absolutely discumknockerated (that’s Knotty Ash for ‘over the moon’) by a truly tattifelarius (fun-filled) evening of laughter and songs!
Don’t miss this fantastic show for all the family, with a supporting company, non-stop gags and a selection of songs presented in his uniquely versatile style: everything from ballads to grand opera!
