The Glasshouse opened in Queen’s Square, Corby, last March with a private champagne reception for invited guests before opening to the public the next day.

A message posted on The Glasshouse’s Facebook page this week said: “It is with a little sadness that I am announcing that The Glasshouse will be closing to the public with immediate effect.

“We will still be available to hire for functions such as baby showers, birthday parties, weddings, christenings, business launches etc.

“It is just due to other work commitments I feel the vision of what we were looking to achieve has been lost a little.

“Please use us for your special occasions and book for exclusive use.

“The private functions we have held have been well received and it really is a beautiful venue for celebrating that special occasion.
