Venue information

The Apex is an award-winning venue in the heart of Bury St Edmunds, known for its acoustic excellence and home to a diverse programme of live music and events.

From classical concerts to pop, rock, jazz, blues, world, country and folk, plus comedy and dance performances; you’ll find something for everyone on its varied programme.

It also hosts a number of community and corporate events, offering the local community an exciting space from which visitors can see a great selection of artists, bands and events.

It has been very well publicised that, as well as its architectural beauty, The Apex also has the very best acoustics, with many musicians who've played there describing it as the best acoustics in the UK, if not Europe!

The Apex also has a Café, which is situated in the foyer. The café is open daily and serves a selection of hot and cold drinks (including fair trade and organic coffee), homemade cakes and snacks. Opening times are: 9.30am-5.30pm Monday to Saturday and 10.30am-4pm on Sunday.

Seating is available in the foyer, upstairs in the Lounge (where you can take in the beautiful artworks on display in The Apex Gallery), or outside in Charter Square.

There are three bars on site, located in the foyer, the auditorium and in the Lounge. Bars open at least an hour prior to the event start time, and the number of bars open is dependent on the event.

The Apex hosts events for all ages ranges, including family friendly events… visit our What’s On page to find out more.
