WALKABOUT celebrated the closure of its Bournemouth nightclub with a special party.

The venue in Old Christchurch Road closed its doors on July 22 to make way for Popworld, a late-night bar with a cheesy twist. 

Popworld has a chain of nightclubs with the closest ones in Southampton and Weymouth. 

Popworld describes itself as a “late-night bar with a difference – we are cheese with style!"

On Fatsoma, Walkabout’s ticket app, it said: “We've made so many memories at Walkabout and everyone at Snakebite HQ will be very sad to see it go.

When one door closes, another door opens, and we can't wait to be part of a new journey when Walkabout becomes Popworld.”

In a statement on social media, Walkabout said the closure was the “end of an era”.

The final party included inflatables, limbo, dance-offs, the final 3am Adele sing-along, confetti, one-pound shots, and two-pound Jaeger bombs.

And of course, its infamous £2.15 snakebites.

Popworld will be opening its doors this September, right in time for freshers' week!
