The legendary Lemon Grove in Cornwall House (universally known as the Lemmy) is the centre of Exeter social life. Over 2,000 students every weekend descend on it for the best weekend in the City.
The Lemon Grove area consists of a main bar, the Refectory, which acts as a function room and/or second bar, and a large area used as a dance floor.
The Lemon Grove is a creature of many faces. The bar is open in the evenings serving a wide range of alcoholic and soft drinks and offers a host of games to pass away the quieter evenings. Look out for our weekly open mic nights (Tuesdays or Wednesdays) and Cash-giveaway quiz (every Sunday) both run by our own student bar staff, as well as our permanently low prices and special offers.
At the weekend it becomes the world famous 'Lemmy'. The Lemmy happens every Friday and Saturday night, tickets available from Guild Box Office. Take a look at the Ents pages.
The Lemon Grove is also the home of the Big Screen Sport with two BigScreen projectors and a host of plasma screens providing the latest in digital sport presentation . There is no better atmosphere in Exeter than the Lemmy with six hundred students watching Owen score that goal against Argentina. This Summer it was a great place for communal sobbing into beer. Not only are all the top sporting events shown (Six Nations, England Internationals, Cricket etc.) but the Bar is also open throughout all the games!
The Lemon Grove is one of the main live venues in the South West and has been helping to break new talent for many years now.We try to provide as wide a variety of music as we can down here in Exeter.The Lemmy is a great place to watch a live concert so get yourself down to some of this terms concerts.Last year you could have seen the Kooks supporting the Subways in the Lemmy whilst Rooster were headlining in the Great Hall. Previous bands have included Blur, Radiohead, Coral, Muse and Keane. Oh yes, and Def Leppard, but that's another story ... amongst many others.
