Unnamed club above CTZN bar


News December 2016

Strip club owners wanting to open a new venue in the middle of Chelmsford face an uphill battle after objections from Essex Police over a highly controversial rule to allow touching.

Wizard Sleeve plans to open a strip club over two floors above CTZN bar, which would feature a large table stage and a collection of private booths and VIP rooms.

Essex Police say they are opposed to the company wanting to relax Chelmsford City Council's strict no touching condition that stipulates there shall be no physical contact between the customer and the performer during the performance or after the performance .

The club had proposed that 'a shake of hands should be acceptable at the end of the dance.


Cheltenham Borough Council

News August 2020: Festival of lap dancing

Cheltenham Council has decided to continue to allow pop up lap dancing venues that appear around major horse racing meetings.

The council dismissed the calls by moralist groups but did add a new law requiring clubs to check ID for customers looking less that 25 years old.

News October 2014: Policy agreed

Cheltenham Borough Council debated for more than three and a half hours whether or not to completely prohibit the clubs. The total ban was defeated in a ballot by 19 votes to 18. Councillors then voted by 25 votes to 9 in favour of allowing the clubs in the town centre but not in residential areas.

News April 2014: Consultation

Cheltenham Borough Council has launched a 12 week period of public consultation in a bid to gauge opinion on the prospect of setting a limit on the number of the venues in the town. This could include the option to totally ban the clubs

News March 2018: On the occasion of Cheltenham races

The club opened for business after the first day's racing as occasional opening is allowed without a licence.

News February 2017: Fillies banned from Cheltenham

An application for sexual entertainment venue licence at the Fantasy Club, 12-14 Bath Road was rejected.

About 20 objections were lodged against lap dancing club plan. The licensing committee voted 3-1 to refuse the application on the grounds that the premises were in a supposedly inappropriate location.

The committee heard objections from an opposition alliance made up of Councillor Flo Lucas, St Paul's Residents' Association Chair Tess Beck and Lesley Painter of local feminist group, Chelt Fems. Painter argued that Cheltenham Borough Council should follow in the steps of high-profile international organisations such as Formula 1, who axed scantily clad grid girls from their events last year.

This is the first time in three year's that the The Fantasy Club has been refused a licence. The club was granted a licence for lap dancing in 2017 and 2016.

News February 2015: Licence renewed

Fantasy Gentlemen's Club has been given permission to continue running for another year.

More than 25 people wrote in to Cheltenham Borough Council with their objections, claiming the location was inappropriate and it detracted from the character and appeal of the local area.

But the applicants said the club has run for a year with little or no trouble. Gloucestershire Constabulary said it had no incidents to report.

News January 2015: Battle Lines

Fantasy has applied for a licence renewal and a couple of miserable campaigners have intimated that they would consider another campaign against the club.

News June 2014: Fantasy

The venue previously intended to be Blue Diamond has now been sold to new owners. The bar will now open as Fantasy Gentlemen's Club and will open on 19th June 2014. It is associated with Fantasy Club in Swindon.

News February 2014: Licence approved

The council approved the licence. There were 200 letters of opposition but mostly on unallowed moralist grounds.

News January 2014: New Application

Local residents are inevitably aghast that anyone has dared to propose a table dancing club in Cheltenham

Campaigners say it would not be an appropriate venue, it would be immoral, and they fear for the safety of women passing by late at night.


The 2 Pigs Pub

Lower High Street

The venue is a part time operation restricted to the days around the town's major horse racing meetings.


2 pigs cheltenham logo

News November: Licence renewed

The council had received a lot of objections to the pub's annual licence renewal, many of which are not very credible. The council overruled the objections but did specify that lap dancing should not commence before 8pm due t the proximity of children's library that opens until 7pm.

The venue had applied to open as follows:

  • Festival Trails Day - January 25, 2020, to January 26, 2020, from 8pm to 5am
  • The Festival - March 9, 2020, to March 15, 2020, from 8pm to 5am
  • The April Meeting - April 15, 2020, to April 17, 2020, from 8pm to 5am
  • The Show Case - "Dates TBC", from 8pm to 5am
  • The November Meeting - "Dates TBC", from 8pm to 5am
  • The International - "Dates TBC", from 8pm to 5am
  • New Year's Day - January 1, 2021, to January 2, 2021, from 8pm to 5am

News July 2019: More meetings

The 2 Pigs pub holds lap dancing events during the Cheltenham Horse Racing Festival in March. It applied to the council to offer similar events at other key horse racing meetings in October, November and December and the council duly agreed.

News January 2017: Application

A company runs occasional lap dancing events to coincide with race days. At the moment the company already runs such events spread across 5 venues, presumably to qualify for the 11 events a year allowed without a sex entertainment licence. The company would now to like to rationalise this to one licensed venue, the 2 Pigs Pub, and so have submitted a licence application to Cheltenham Council.

50 residents have submitted an objection whinging about morality and location. The police have chipped in a list of 30, now doubt repressive, licence conditions.


Platinum Lounge

Bridge Street Row

News July 2015: Chester Tutters

Chester's only strip club has been closed down by moralists on Chester's Council. Arbitrary reasons were quoted for the refusal to renew the licence for Platinum Lounge in the city centre.

Chester and Cheshire West Council's planning committee claimed it was no longer appropriate for Platinum Lounge to continue. The committee noted the venue was close to family friendly premises, such as BARS??? and restaurants, as well as residential accommodation. They also noted that the presence of a strip club does nothing to enhance Chester's family friendly tourist offering , the Dewa Roman Experience.

The venue later became a Breakout centre.




News, January 2015: Closed

The club has been closed for some months but retains a sexual entertainment licence. Presumably to provide a more attractive proposition for potential buyers.


Solo Summers

Balkerne Hill

News, May 2020: Application

The Solo Summers concept is made up of varied events some that do not require sexual entertainment venue licencing. However Batchelor and Bachelorette nights are events that require a sexual entertainment venue licence are actually made up of both male and female dancers.

The venue has applied for a sex entertainment license but is being opposed by feminists on morality grounds.

The Manhattan Club


News June 2013: Licence Lost

The bar has lost its sex entertainment licence after complaints by the police.

The police claimed that the premise was non-compliant because it did not:

maintain separate entrances for customers and performers to use... maintain a satisfactory register of performers with the level of detail required...check on the age of performers to ensure they are over 18...maintain a register of SIA staff working at your premises...[or] have a nominated female chaperone oversees female performers.
