Stylish events and ticketing website for one of East Anglia's premier entertainment venues
St. Edmunsbury Borough Council wanted a fresh and responsive re-design for the Apex entertainment venue with seamless integration with its Spektrix box office system
With high profile entertainers such as Brian Blessed, Hot Chocolate and Sir Michael Parkinson performing, the Apex needed a stylish new website to market its rich events calendar.
We used the CommonSpot CMS to create an intuitive and easy-to-use website that’s a doddle for venue staff to update. The new website features a customisable banner area to promote upcoming shows with ease and a range of templates that enable the client to effectively showcase the Apex’s excellent facilities such as art gallery and cafe.
Our design maximises the impact of the promotional imagery available and uses APIs to seamlessly integrate with Council’s Spektrix box office system to securing handle bookings and payments.
The APEX is the first of a 5 of new ‘Events’ website we are developing for West Suffolk Councils. For cost effective development and ease of administration, each website will share the same underlying technology with a bespoke design customised to the individual project requirements and brand.
The new Apex website provides a highly engaging experience with excellent user journeys. It also enables the venue to accept payments through a PCI-DSS compliant box office system.
