ST Neots' only nightclub has closed its doors after being open for less than a year.

Owners of Worx in South Street have refused to say why the night-spot has closed but told The Hunts Post they hope it will reopen soon.

They have also refused to comment on why another one of their businesses, Stripes Bar and Grill in South Street, St Neots has shut.

Speaking to The Hunts Post on Wednesday morning (June 3), Iain Mack, Worx general manager said: "The management has asked that I do not comment on why the club has closed but we hope to open again soon."

The night-spot was set to host internationally renowned DJ Judge Jules next Friday (June 12) but the closure has led to the gig being cancelled. Anyone with tickets can use them to gain entry to see Judge Jules at Club Metro, London Road, Peterborough on June 13 or get a refund by contacting Worx via their Facebook page.

Worx opened in July last year creating 12 new jobs and establishing itself as the town's first dedicated nightclub.

With a capacity of about 500, the night-spot is set over three levels and is housed in the former Job Centre. The renovation work cost around half a million pounds.

The ground floor of the building is fitted out as a coffee shop during the day and a chill-out space at night. On the first floor there are sound proof, air conditioned dance area with a bar, DJ box, multi coloured lasers and ceiling fans. The top floor is an exclusive VIP area for up to 60 people with a bar and a roof terrace.

Worx and Stripes Bar and Grill (formerly the Kings Head) is managed by Marcus Simpson, David Taylor and Ciaran MacCana of Ethos Entertainment Ltd.

Speaking to The Hunts Post in July last year Mr Simpson, said: "We are not marketing Worx as a nightclub but rather a late-night destination. It is a place where people can dance with friends after the pub or get a coffee at 1am.
