LORD Shayler’s controversial strip club will no longer provide lap-dancing services after it was converted into a night club last week.

Only four months after Shayler’s opened for the first time, amid protests and demonstrations from angry residents, the site on Church Street in Ampthill is to drop lap-dances and strip performances and become an ordinary night club.

The announcement was made via the official Shayler’s Twitter page on Monday after members of the public asked if the establishment would be closing down.

After one woman asked: ‘So no more dancers?’ the response said: ‘Nope no dancers, just a nice club everyone welcome. As from this Friday from 8pm.’

It was also revealed that the big changes would involve a new entry price of £5 down from the original £20 fee on opening night in November and that it would now only be open on Friday and Saturday nights and not on Thursdays..

One punter remarked: ‘Wow, they’ve slashed the admission by 75 per cent then, I paid £20 when it first opened!’

Staff took to Twitter to defend the night spot against rumours that the site had closed down .

It said: ‘We have not closed....simply changed to the best club to be.’

However despite hundreds of people, including Mid-Bedfordshire MP Nadine Dorries, protesting about the opening of the strip club being out of keeping with the Georgian market town, some believe residents will continue to view Shayler’s with some trepidation even after the changes have taken place.
