With much regret, after 6 years in operation, Lemon Studios has unfortunately closed. The long and short of it is that our lease expired as the landlord decided to renovate the entire building at 85 Clerkenwell Road, and we were unable to find any other suitable locations that met the needs of our tenants and were financially viable. We looked hard because we love what we’ve done with Lemon Studios, but the options presented to us were either too corporate for us, or simply too expensive for the low margin business that we were.
It’s been a great journey, over the last 6 years we’ve had literally hundreds of digital media, creative and Internet types in our offices, and the community and environment we created was unique. I’ve seen so many businesses start up in Lemon Studios, grow and move on to be very successful, and I hope that we’ve helped them with their success in some small part. I hope that everyone remembers Lemon Studios as fondly as I do, and I hope to see everyone at one of the 85 Clerkenwell Alumni events that we’re now organising.
If you have any questions, then please feel free to get in touch with me on matt [AT] lemonstudioslondon.com.
If you were fortunate enough to have been a resident at Lemon Studios at any point, then please do join our 85 Clerkenwell Alumni group on LinkedIn as we’ll be organising occasional get togethers.
Over and out.
