Exmouth’s only nightclub – Popworld – has closed permanently, it has been confirmed.

Stonegate pub company has confirmed that the nightclub will not be reopening at all after lockdown.

Back in 2019, Devon Live reported that Popworld took over from Fever, Boutique and Kukui – it’s last remaining nightclub in East Devon.

A spokesperson for Stonegate Group said: “We can confirm that our lease at Popworld in Exmouth has come to an end, so unfortunately, it will not reopen after lockdown.

“However, Popworld in Plymouth will reopen on 21 June, in line with government restrictions, and we are looking forward to throwing our customers a Popworld Party once more.”

In August, Devon Live reported that following the lockdown Popworld in Exmouth reopened with strict social distancing measures.

According to the PM’s roadmap out of lockdown, from June 21 at the earliest, all remaining restrictions on social contact could be lifted, larger events can go ahead and nightclubs could finally reopen.
