Apex updates during the COVID-19 pandemic

Keeping you safe

On Monday 19 July, The Apex re-opened at full capacity.

We would like to reassure customers, staff and performers that, following the lifting of social distancing restrictions that will allow us to open at full capacity, we will continue to follow government guidance and take a cautious approach over the coming weeks and months to ensure that everyone can enjoy their visit to The Apex safely.

  • Please wear a face covering when you arrive and as you move around the building. We would also like to encourage you to continue to wear it during performances, except when you are eating and drinking. Please remember that some people have been exempt from wearing face-coverings and may not be able to comply with this recommendation.
  • Please note that the box office, café and bars are only accepting card payments. Please also consider pre-ordering interval drinks in order to minimise queues at the bars.
  • The Apex has a very good ventilation system that allows continual fresh air to come into the building and it is currently set to ensure no recirculation of air.
  • If you have symptoms or believe you may have been exposed to the virus, please contact us and do not travel to attend the event; we will be able to credit your Apex account.
  • Before you attend, please consider taking a lateral flow test, which can be obtained from pharmacies.
  • There will be sanitisers available in The Apex so please continue to wash or sanitise your hands regularly. Our staff will be operating a strict and rigorous cleaning schedule.
  • QR codes will be prominently placed in The Apex foyer and we would encourage you to continue checking in with these when coming for a performance or for a drink in the café.
  • The cloakroom is not currently available, so you will need to keep coats and jackets with you.

If you have any urgent questions or concerns, please contact the Box office on 01284 758000 during opening hours

We will keep this under continual review, will monitor Government guidance and we will provide updates as and when there any changes.

Thank you for your continued support, for being considerate to others and for helping us to keep everyone safe.

For more information about COVID-19, please visit the Government website.
