CODE and Popworld said they had been inundated with messages from people eager to get back on the Sheffield clubbing scene, which shut down after lockdown was imposed in March.

Taking to their respective Facebook pages to update fans, club bosses said they ‘couldn’t wait’ to reopen but were unable not provide a specific date at this time.

The post from Popworld reads: “To everyone who has messaged, thank you- we appreciate every single one of them.

“We've had hundreds of messages asking when and if we'll be re-opening the club,” said CODE. “And we thought best to put out a quick announcement.

“We absolutely cannot wait until we're given the green light to re-open, and we're checking the news every minute of every day to find out when that can happen.”

In June Boris Johnson announced that nightclubs will remain shut for the forseeable future, despite pubs and restaurants reopening on July 4.

The Prime Minister said venues where there is ‘close proximity’ interaction will stay closed, but the Government would work to ensure such businesses can reopen as soon as possible.

The next lockdown review is set to take place late next month and is likely to contain updates for the reopening of nightclubs along with indoor gyms, soft-play areas, swimming pools, spas and bowling alleys.
