POSTPONED>>> Postponement of the East Anglian Beer and Cider Festival
Regrettably, as a consequence of government advice on the Coronavirus, the Apex in Bury St Edmunds has made the decision today to suspend all events due to take place at the venue with immediate effect on Health and Safety grounds until further notice. This means that we will be unable to hold the East Anglian Beer and Cider Festival as planned on 22-25th April 2020 so we have postponed the event. It is hoped that we will be able to reschedule the festival for later in the year and should this be possible we will update the festival website
