Leicester’s Athena Events Venue celebrates 18th birthday

Submitted by Eve McCann from Clareville

Athena, the Art Deco Grade II-listed events venue located in Leicester’s cultural quarter, is celebrating its 18 th birthday this year with a major event to mark 18 years of trading in the events space.

Originally designed in 1936 by Robert Arthur Bullivant as an Odeon Cinema, the venue represented one of the largest, most extravagant buildings within the region seating over 3000 guests. Remaining closed throughout much of the 90s, the venue was then restored to its former art deco glory and now combines history with state of the art technology, hosting exhibitions, sporting events, festivals, conferences, weddings and shows.

The venue offers an unique space with areas that can be customised to specific event requirements, along with an award-winning team of staff to ensure your event runs smoothly. Hosting hundreds of events each year ranging from small business to national companies, Athena prides itself on its expertise, location and facilities in providing an exceptional venue with historical roots.

Hira Ram, Head of Events at Athena, said: “We are thrilled to be celebrating our 18th birthday this year with a space that provides state of the art technology following major investments and upgrades. We look forward to continuing our service for delegates both locally and nationally.”
