The owners of the former Area nightclub have revealed the new club will be called Cameo when it reopens.

The news comes as the club, in The Parade, serves a temporary closure after police applied for it to be stripped of its licence for a serious of management and health and safety failings.

Last month the club’s owners, Gatecrasher, agreed to close it for two months and rebrand to avoid losing its licence.

Even though Gatecrasher has revealed the new name of the club, little other information about what it will look like after it reopens has been released. An official opening date is also yet to emerge.

At the licensing hearing in October representatives of the club said the new club would be aimed at older clientele when it reopens.

However on its Facebook page the club said it would not be over 25 club, but remain an over 18 one.
