- Unlike the Regent Theatre opposite, the Athenaeum deals pretty exclusively in live theatre. However, its productions range from Bell's Shakespeare Company to Winnie-the-Pooh to one-man shows. There is a small theatre upstairs and the main theatre downstairs seats slightly fewer than 1000 at full capacity. The National Trust classified building is decoratively rather more restrained than some of the old city centre theatres. Refreshments are available.
