Moments to treasure

Not only is the Athenaeum available for private hire but we also host a number of ticketed special events, including shows, concerts, party nights and themed events. Keep an eye on our latest events page on our website to see what’s coming up. The Athenaeum has always been considered to be a ‘local venue for local people’ and we positively encourage the local community to use our magnificent space when possible.
