Cirencester club night for Royal Agricultural College students cancelled after reported brawl
A STUDENT night at a Cirencester club was called off following a brawl that took place the previous week.
Yesterday, owners of The Rock club, on Cricklade Street, decided to “take a night off” from the weekly Wednesday event for students of the Royal Agricultural College.
The decision follows an alleged fight, which took place between door staff and students at the club in the early hours of Thursday, January 24.
Calls were made to the police by a student and staff members to report a disturbance in the club, but when officers from Cirencester station arrived on scene shortly afterwards there was no sign of trouble and no complaints of assault were made.
Both club CCTV and Cirencester town centre CCTV was reviewed and no one has been charged following the incident.
The Rock owner Biag Vitale declined to comment about the reasons for last night’s closure and added, “we decided to take a night off.”
However, a source told the Standard that yesterday’s closure was a punishment for students’ unruly behaviour the previous week.
Sarah Tennant-Bell, student liaison officer, said this was not the case and the club night was called off because of an internal event.
“The Student Union decided to put a special student event on at College on Wednesday night to raise awareness for RAG week, which begins on 2nd February”
