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 have seen some lovely shows here. Ticket prices are reasonable, seating is excellent and the facilities are as new including the bar area. Thank you to all the people that work hard to make this place a success!

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!

I am surprised by any negative comments about this brilliant venue, run entirely by volunteers. They are so accommodating to all and they are always updating the building. Great shows and films!

What a shame that some people do not appreciate the effort of others .This wonderful Centre is run entirely by volunteers (not employees) trying to provide a community hub and entertainment centre for the enjoyment of others. Three cheers for the ATH .

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
