We have visited the Athenaeum several times now, mostly for theatrical shows and sometimes for music. It is a wonderfully kept old theatre, small enough to be personal but big enough to get the full 'theatre experience'. It is very well run by the team of passionate volunteers, and I am yet to be disappointed with a production. The Athenaeum... More

The show was mainly teenagers part of a group to encourage participation from all walks of life, an the show was fine. Some numbers better than others. Overall... More

My partner and I came here with my parents for the Two Plays and a Pudding night. The theatre was very well restored, easy to navigate and friendly staff (and great home made puddings/cakes!). Would visit again.

We love this perfect little theatre with all the work the volunteers have so daringly lavished. The fundraising they have achieved to redo foyer,and bar as well as Gallery is fantastic as an achievement. AsOne Theatre Company regularly brings new theatre pieces to this receiving theatre. The volunteers who run the Athenaeum both front of house and technician crew are... More

We regularly attend the Athenaeum theatre in Warminster. It is such a fun place with a huge range of shows. It is run by a happy band of "professional "amateurs. Film club, plays, shows. We have seen them all. The amenities are all updated, with a lift up to the bar area. Brilliant. Mother in law in her wheelchair, can... More

Quite simply a gem of its kind. A beautifully restored and maintained listed building, something is always going on at this lovely little theatre, which seats about 230 I'm told. There are three theatrical groups that use the theatre's facilities and the dressing rooms have recently been refurbished, through the efforts of the theatre groups themselves; the stage lighting system...

A splendid little place - and such nice people running it - all volunteers I understand. Just been to see a fantastic West End standard musical there this week and have already got my tickets for great production in December AND Panto.... and all in this charming building, but with all modern amenities. What a find!
