The Farmers Club hosted our champagne and cream tea wedding reception for 53 people in May 2012. The arrangements, food, staff and the service could not be faulted. This was a great location for us and we received outstanding feedback from all our guests. We would thoroughly recommend this as a venue for your reception/party. Thank you The Farmers Club for helping to make this a great day. Judy and Adrian Bond

I have been to several events at the apex and I have to say I am incredibly impressed by the variety of wonderful preformers on offer. Most recently I went to see 3 Daft Monkeys and I was pleased to see that the seating arrangement had been changed to allow everyone to dance, as most everyone wanted to. This has been my only critism in the past where on a few shows I thought the seating did not fit the type of preformance. The versitility of the seating is fabulous. The Apex is such a fantastic venue - I'm thinking of becoming a member

Footloose on the third Sunday of most months is absolutely fantastic. People of all ages and dance genres and abilities can have a great afternoon dancing and meeting friends. A very special mention should be made for Mambo Mark who makes it all possible and is a fantastic DJ.

I have bought several tickets to see various perormances at the new Apex. Amazing. And the on line booking is easy and works. The venue is such an asset to BSE.

We had a super night at the Apex seeing Steve Harley last week. The acoustics are amazing. We pre ordered our drinks so we had no queuing in the break. I love this amazing asset to Bury St Edmunds and look forward to the next event- this Friday a private party by a local prominent businessman who is hosting his Xmas party there.
