Serving the Community for over 170 Years

Wiltshire’s Oldest Working Theatre. The Athenæum is a Grade II listed building with a long and colourful history of use; from a literary institution with lecture hall, to a cinema, school, theatre, and centre for the community. The Centre is held in Trust by, and for, the people of Warminster and is operated by a dedicated team of volunteers. The Athenaeum hosts a diverse range of theatrical and community groups, classes and activities within its many rooms. At the heart of the building, the Victorian Auditorium has hosted shows, plays and concerts for over 140 years, and continues to be used by local drama and dance groups, schools and charities, for shows, cinema and events, as well as the occasional professional touring company.
