well worth visiting, not easy to find, even if no production on. Take your camera!

Have visited over many years to see various shows.

“Top quality local theatre”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

Many towns have lost their local theatres - and it is great that in Warminster, there is a team of people working incredibly hard to provide a venue with a very diverse range of events. In the last 12 months, shows have included Les Miserables, Phantom of the Opera, The Vicar of Dibley, several Pantos, concerts, films and events. The whole toilet area has been massively refurbished and an ongoing refurbishment of the entire evnue is really bringing this place back to life.

“Quaint theatre good views”
Reviewed July 20, 2012

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

“2 plays and a pudding!”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

If you're in the area and need something to do one evening, do have a look at their programme of events! Lovely little theatre!
