Former boss of Plymouth pole-dance club faces trial
A TRIAL has been set for the former boss of a pole-dancing club accused of allowing performers and dancers to touch in breach of its licence.
Manager Anthony Bowman, aged 49, allegedly knowingly permitted women and clients to have physical contact at Divas in Union Street.
Bowman, of Southway Drive, denied a single charge of allowing 53 "licensable activities", which were not authorised by the club's licence, between September and December last year.
He appeared again at Plymouth Magistrate's Court, where a date was set for a trial on January 15 next year. Divas closed in December last year and its licence was revoked the following month.
