A Year in the Life of The Apex...

To help celebrate The Apex’s 10th anniversary in 2020, Suffolk-based photographer Geoff Price spent twelve months documenting everyday life at The Apex.


The resulting photographic exhibition beautifully captures every aspect of this much-loved venue and its place in the community.


Councillor Jo Rayner, Portfolio Holder for Leisure, Culture and Community Hubs, explained, “The Apex means many different things to many different people. For some, it is a concert hall, theatre, café, art gallery, conference venue or a Tourist Information Centre; but for others, it’s the place where they practice yoga, dance, or where their children learn ballet or make videos and so much more.”


Marketing manager Ian Clarke added “The Apex offers something for everyone, from babes in arms right through to senior citizens. We wanted some way to convey this versatility, and as you know, a picture speaks a thousand words!”


Geoff had an ‘Access All Areas’ pass to a diverse selection of events - from The Sooty Show and the Mikado to workshops and business conferences. Prior to the pandemic, Geoff took photographs behind the scenes and on stage at gigs, concerts and events for all ages, as well as snapping the various local groups that fill the venue with life throughout the day.


Consequently, the exhibition of ninety beautiful colour photographs encapsulates daily life at the acclaimed venue and helps to illustrate the major role that it plays in the community of Bury St Edmunds and West Suffolk.


The exhibition is open daily from Wednesday 20 October to Sunday 21 November, entry is free. For more information, visit or ring 01284 758000
