We've been to live productions here and to their monthly film night and it offers a broad range of entertainment. The staff or rather volunteers are always keen to please. The films are particularly to our taste but we have sometimes wished we knew more in advance what is coming throughout the year, because we prefer to support the local... More

I am absolutely furious with the way I was treated at Warminster Athenaeum this evening!!

some theatres cram you in and you struggle to see, every seat in the Ath is staggered and staged so you can see and are comfortable. Steep stairs to the bar, but there is a lift
