Multi-millionaire Businesswoman Forced to Close Upmarket Night Club as 'farmers Don’t Go out Late'

From The Evening Standard  A TOP City executive who juggled her career with raising six children has blamed the failure of her night club in Wymondham near Norwich on farmers going to bed early. Fund manager Nicola Horlick, 53, says she had to close her Georgina's   after 18 months because the area was "full of farmers and farm workes who have to be up at the crack of dawn".  The multi-millionaire, who named the restaurant after her eldest daughter who died of leukemia in 1998, said she had failed to make a profit because of poor trade in the evenings and at night time.  She said: "I have learnt a lot of lessons. The problem is Norfolk is full of agricultural workers who don't go out much at night." The economically illiterate former banker also cited "outrageous" business rates in the market town for the night club's failure and blamed local estate agents for pushing them up...  However, she plans to open a lap dancing club in Harleston, another area known for its population of so-called "country folk". The new venture will also be called Georgina's and could be followed by a casino in the Peak District or an all-night cocktail bar on Bodmin Moor, she said.
