About the Athenaeum Friends

We formed in 2000, at the same time as the Centre reopened. We currently have over 120 members and arrange a variety of fundraising activities, as well as social events and generally help with the smooth running of the Centre.

What do we do for the Athenaeum?

  • We help in a number of ways:
  • Fundraise for Building Enhancement Projects
  • Running the Bar
  • Help Supply Volunteers
  • Encourage attendance at Shows
  • Support the Athenaeum Trustees

How Can You Help?

  • Become a member of the Friends first and foremost.
  • Volunteer your service for ushering, bar and box office.
  • Any help is greatly appreciated.
