Lovely, spacious venue. All the staff were really helpful and supportive. Fabulous stage.
First time at the athena attend comic con 2017 the staff was friendly and helpful and brilliant in security I felt safe with everything that has happened it's easy to get to the town is 5 minutes away
1st time been to comic con and it was brilliant will go again. The venue was easy to find, stalls set out with lots of different merchandise, well worth the price of admission.
Brilliant venue and everyone who is associated with it. Fabulous day out and such a friendly place. Made to feel like very special once your there..I take my hat off to you all. 20*
Attended @[1611649629121929:Comic Con Leicester] at Athena June 3-4 2017. The staff and security were very helpful and seemed to enjoy the event. The stalls were well arranged and despite being a complete sell out, access was never difficult, even for those in big costumes. It was very hot inside, even with the aircon on full. The bar was very pricey and there was no food on sale. We had a good time there. No complaints. More...

I loved seeing antony joshua staff was nice but security was so rude with people
Friday 28th May RICS Awards dinner here. The food was simply outstanding. I dread eating at these type of do when there are hundreds of guests but we were all surprised and delighted at what we received. The 3 course dinner was imaginative, bautifullly cooked and served hot! More...
Great venue. Looks nice and toilets lovely!
Good venue...nice atmosphere...diverse crowd reflected by diverse comedians...only issue is that they are only 2 hand dryers in the ladies toilets...
Comedy jam was amazingly funny! Well organised, Nice venue, nice staff. Shame about the loud chatting in the back, think security could of asked them to quieten down earlier as it was pretty annoying. Didn't spoil a great night with some top comedians though. More...
Great venue. Good location and easy parking. Would definitely return despite the event we attended being disappointing

Absolute great venue in terms of atmosphere, service, standards, catering and management support Hira & Rhiannah, Georgia and the Team.

I enjoyed my night at Athena to see chubby Brown. The only sad thing is I came out to see two traffic wardens giving chubby a parking ticket.

With a venue this size its excellent however, you should cater for food and on show nights some people are coming from work and a lite bite would be perfect.
It is a good venue, parking is good, the only problem I found is you don't serve food, it would be great if you have just hotdog/ burger stall anything like that, came to see Chubby last night straight from work hoping to get some food but nothing!
I had a great time! drinks too expensive tho!:-(
NYE at Athena was simply amazing ! From start to finish we had a blast ! My best NYE night out to date, we will be returning next year. Good show Athena well executed.
Unreal venue!!! Amazing entertainment but the food let it down!!! If the food was on point it would be the best event in the U.K.!!!

Very good evening for NYE and 30th Birthday celebration. Plenty of drinks and canapes on arrival. Food was served swiftly and it was nice and hot. The soup starter was bland and needed more seasoning but apart from that it was great. Fabulous Circus entertainment, could have been more. A good dj to end the night with a bacon butty. Overall a fab evening :) More...
New Years Eve party, a very busy evening but the staff were very efficient at getting the food out to everyone. Delicious food, very tasty, hot and well presented. Pre-ordered Wine was on the table. Plenty of canapés and drinks on arrival. excellent circus performamce but wish there was a bit more of this entertainment. Good DJ playing the sounds that got everyone up for a dance. Lovely location, smart, clean and tidy. Thank you Athena, and happy new year to you! More...

Had a great night on our works do, food and entertainment was brill, staff where polite and helpful. Had to go back in after we left as we could not get our parking ticket to work, a male member of the bar stack came out to the car park to help resolve the issue for us (was my error). Reading some of these other reviews it is obvious that you cannot please every one. Well done Athena � More...
Had a fantastic Christmas works Party there on Saturday, the circus acts were brilliant, amazing food and very professional service topped off with a bacon cobs at midnight - loved it - great venue and will definitely be coming back!
The best night I've had in ages, top entertainment, food and atmosphere. Well worth the money and the staff were all good too �x
Amazing night... worth every penny, great atmosphere as soon as you walked in. Food was good, all staff worked really hard, couldn't find anything to complain about. ... well organised would visit again, I'd imagine NYE would be fab More...

Absolutely amazing Christmas party! The entertainment was brilliant! Food delicious and well presented and the staff were fantastic thank you very much Athena for an absolutely amazing night Team Lilliput xx
It was amazing Circus show. The food was excellent and served very professional. Brilliant idea with the Casino made my night I came 2nd overal on the roulette wheel and won the bottle of champagne. Breakfast bacon cobs was delicious at 12am. The best Christmas party venue I've been too in a long time. Very worth every penny. Well done Athena! More...

One of the premier venues in the midlands whether for a wedding or concerts or awards evening or corporate event or cage fighting or. ....list is endless. What makes it premier is not just the facilities but the BRILLIANT staff and management. Keep it up guys. Great job!!! More...
Came here for GinFest 2016, lovely venue! Easy to get to, clean and well run. Also not too warm, which is great after a few bevvies.
Great venue for the Gin Festival. Enough space, good staff, clean loos, good entertainment.
The best party & conference venue in the universe! :-)
Good sized venue! Could make a few improvements in the facilities
Always a pleasure to being working at the athena.

Had a fabulous evening celebrating British Gymnastics annual awards evening. Venue was incredible, staff very attentive pleasant and polite. The only disappointing factor was the bar ran out of my favourite wine Pinot Grigio at 8:30pm after the bar had only been open for 1 hour. More...

Was a great night had by all... Great venue and great service
Wonderful atmosphere and fantastic staff made my visit a joyous occasion and I shall definitely recommend to friends and family.
Fantastic place the staff cannot do enough for you. Had the best night !!
Cannot thank Rhianna enough for all the help you gave us on the day!! You not only calmed us all down, you even made sure the bride (Chandni) stayed calm! ! Rhianna you're a star you gave the reception that extra touch by going above and beyond! From both families, the bride and the groom, thank you so much for your help Rhianna and team! Xx More...
Fabulous place, could not be bettered as a fight venue. Great facilities, centrally situated! Viewed some great boxing events there, very well organised!
I can't tell you how impressed we were with this venue. We have just had our unconventional wedding party there and they did an amazing job. Stunning venue, friendly and professional staff with everything running smoothly and on time. The food was delicious and the chefs attention to detail was appreciated. With over 400 people, Elvis and a Drag Queen to contend with they did an amazing job. I couldn't recommend this venue more highly. More...
Got married here. Staff were amazing, helping me with everything I needed from start to finish!!!
Christmas event. Entrance displayed a very good Christmas theme. Good food and entertainment.
Work due last year and going in December this. Wonderful night with friends and family!
Amazing venue, very friendly staff, great atmosphere, love the food and drinks. And the disco. Always had a fantastic time.
Great venue for our annual Vet Ball (Nottingham Uni). Very professional, friendly service. Super food and atmosphere. Hope to come back next year. Thank you!
Decorated beautifully and great atmosphere. Didn't like being packed in like sardines before the meal as you aren't allowed in the dining room until a certain time. Food was delicious but a not enough of it although the "trio of chocolate desserts" was actually a double and one of them was a biscuit with icecream on top! The midnight bacon cobs were delicious. The waitressing staff dropped turkey on our table and didn't even pick it up. There were no side plates layed out for our soup so I had to spread my bread in my hand. The entertainment was brilliant and the music at the end was great although the dance floor was too small and the steps up to it wobbly although two members of staff were there holding them. One other thing is you had to climb two sets of stairs to go to the toilet!! Overall though a great night. More...
Fab night on Saturday! Decorated perfectly for the Christmas spirit. Food was lovely with great services and perfect portion sizes. Entertainment was amazing and a really great party atmosphere to start the Christmas celebrations!! Well done Athena, all my party enjoyed it and we are looking forward to next years celebrations!!! More...
Had a great night on Saturday at Athena.Food was really good and served efficiently and, more to the point it was hot ! HOW do they do that when serving so many at once ! .Loved the entertainment and great party atmosphere. Good value with all the little additions like chocolate fountain and bacon sandwiches included. Definitely going next year ! More...
Great venue. loved it
Great bars, very attentive staff. Thoroughly enjoyed our night.
Great Venue. IQ Events has served so many times successfully with friendly staff.
Brill venue for a patry. Been organising works Xmas parties here for the passed 3 years. Already booked in for this December!
The place is cool....but the food is terrible! =(
I've played for a few weddings here. the venue is fantastic for Asian weddings and the staff are great.
