DO YOU remember this lost Herefordshire nightclub?

Originally opening in 1994, Euphoria in Leominster’s South Street served as the town’s only nightclub for a number of years.

Euphoria faced a number of difficulties and delays in its early years, with the conversion of its former kingdom hall premises into a club delayed due to the discovery of a historical burial site located beneath the building.

Another problem arose when the club failed to obtain a liquor license extension allowing them to stay open until 2am. After a trial run the license was eventually granted in 1996, and the club went on to be a popular spot for revellers for the best part of two decades.


The party came to an end in May 2013, however, when the club packed for its final night after almost 20 years.

At the time, manager Sarah Hughes, who worked at the venue since it opened in 1994, said: “We could not have asked for a better send off.

“It was a special, special night and I can’t thank people enough for the kind words they showed us.”

Owner Mark Mifflin blamed the closure on the smoking ban and licensing laws allowing pubs to open later than 11 pm. He said that cheap supermarket drinks and the recession have also had a negative effect on the business.

Euphoria was eventually transformed into a Masonic lodge after Mr Mifflin was unable to sell the club as a going concern, despite it being on the market with a national bar and club agent since 2011.
