A POPULAR town centre bar in High Wycombe is to close - with the owners suggesting it could be turned into flats.

Staff at Scorpios bar in Crendon Street have announced time will be called for the final time next month after failing to agree a new lease.

The live music bar will host its final gig on Sunday, August 24.

A post on Scorpios' Facebook page read: "So the sad time has arrived, that we have to announce, with a heavy heart, the pending closure of Scorpios.

"As many of you are aware, the building was sold in April and we have failed to negotiate a new lease with the new owner. Their intentions are to develop the building into new flats.

"We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved, in making the past few years epic!"
