Not too large, but has a modern, well equipped theatre. Coffee shop open every day. Car park very close. A good and very wide range of acts on the programme. Recommended.

The one thing I wanted from the Apex's website, but was not on there, was a map of where the Apex was situated in the Arc in relation to the shops. Never been there before, so it would have been helpful to make it easier...More
