The Lilydale Athenaeum
From 1888 onwards the people of Lilydale have constantly re-invented the Athenaeum building to fit in with the community's ever changing needs. As a result it has been a Mechanics' Institute, a library, a community hall, a performance stage, a lecture hall, a place of worship, a meeting room, a cinema, an indoor sports stadium, a roller skating rink, a military drill hall, a work room, a venue for political forums, a polling booth, a ballroom, a concert hall and even a museum.
Since 1975 it has been the home of the Lilydale Athenaeum Theatre Company, regarded as one of Victoria's best non-professional drama companies.
1 July 2014
In February this year the old (and uncomfortable) auditorium seating was removed and brand new seating installed.
After a trial during the first season (Double Act) some further adjustment of seat spacing was needed. This was completed before the last season opened (Twelve Angry Men).
The new seats have been a winner with our audiences and more than justify their considerable cost.
To help offset some of this expense we are inviting subscribers to 'sponsor a seat' for a donation of $50. Donors' names are displayed on an honour board in the foyer.
Online booking is here!
